LAHORE – Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has been accused of exploiting his former class fellow.

The woman, who claimed to be a former class fellow of Pakistan's star batsman, told the media that Babar Azam proposed her in 2010 and she eloped with him for court marriage in 2011 because their families did not approve their relationship.

“He has been exploiting me for ten years by giving false promises of marriage,” said the woman, sharing that they had lived then in different houses at Gulberg and Punjab Housing Society. However, Babar refused to marry her.

Hamiza maintained she provided huge financial support to Babar with her beauty salon income.
