Pakistan captain Babar Azam may take legal action against YouTubers and former cricketers who accused him of “misbehaviour” during their campaign in the ongoing T20 World Cup, Geo News reported citing sources. Babar and the Pakistan team faced criticism from former players and fans due to their World Cup campaign. Sources told Geo News that during Pakistan's campaign, a social media campaign was used to “target” Babar, which left him feeling “frustrated”.

It was also reported that evidence related to the statements made by YouTubers and former cricketers is being collected by the legal department of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Some players and officials arrived at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport on a private airline flight in the early hours of Wednesday.

The players who returned included Naseem Shah, Usman Khan and senior manager Wahab Riaz. However, some players from the 15-member squad decided to extend their stay in the US after India were eliminated early from the tournament.

Along with Babar, Imad Wasim, Haris Rauf, Shadab Khan and Azam Khan are expected to leave on Saturday.

Ahmed Shehzad, Babar's former teammate at the international and domestic level, has been criticising the Pakistan captain ever since the team was knocked out of the T20 World Cup.

After reaching the final against England in the previous edition of the competition, Pakistan crashed out of the ongoing World Cup in the group stage itself.

Pakistan ended their campaign with a three-wicket win over Ireland in Florida on Sunday, a mismatch as India and the USA advanced to the Super 8 stage from Group A.

Pakistan, placed in Group A, suffered consecutive defeats against co-hosts USA and then against arch-rivals India.

They bounced back with two consecutive wins, but it was not enough to turn around their disappointing campaign and secure a place in the Super 8s.

Pakistan's next white-ball series will be against Australia in November. The Men in Green will play a three-match ODI series, starting on November 4.
