The first match of the Test series will be played between Australia and Pakistan. During this time, Usman Khwaja has once again come into the limelight. The reason for the discussion is once again the same war between Israel and Gaza. We tell you that Usman Khawaja was recently not allowed to wear shoes with ‘All lives are equal’ written on them. But now when he came out to bat on the first day of the first Test match, he was wearing a black band on his arm. This has made the matter even more heated.

Khwaja’s name in conversation again

The ICC on Wednesday did not allow Khawaja to wear shoes bearing some messages related to Gaza. The shoes the Pakistan-born cricketer wore during Tuesday’s training session had messages like “All Live Matter” written on them. ICC rules do not allow the display of political or religious statements on team clothing or equipment. Khawaja later said that he would abide by the rule to avoid individual or team bans, but that he would appeal the ICC’s decision.

Khawaja said in a social media post that freedom is a human right and all rights are equal. I will never stop believing in her. Australia won the toss and decided to bat in the Test. Khawaja and fellow Australian opener David Warner were on the field along with Pakistan fielders. Pakistan-born Khawaja is the first Muslim player to play Test cricket for Australia. He wore a black armband to show his solidarity with the people of Gaza.

Disappointed with the ICC’s decision

Before the game, he said in a television interview that there had been many examples in the past of other cricketers being allowed to show their support for other things. He said that I found it a little disappointing that he was hard on me and that they aren’t always hard on everyone. In addition to Australia captain Pat Cummins, Khawaja also had the support of the country’s federal treasurer Jim Chalmers.
