Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, will make the Hajj this year with his mother, it was revealed on Monday.
According to reports, the star batsman will travel to Saudi Arabia during the second week of June. Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, Faheem Ashraf, and Fakhar Zaman are additional players who are anticipated to perform the Hajj this year.
Inzamam-ul-Haq, a former athlete, will also perform the Hajj with his wife.
Pakistan began operating flights earlier this month, with the first flights leaving Karachi and Lahore on May 21 with 602 passengers for the annual pilgrimage.
The Pakistani captain is currently in the United States, where he and wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan created history by enrolling in the prestigious executive education program on the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports (BEMS) at the Harvard Business School. They are the first cricketers to enroll in this illustrious school.
