Multan Sultans Appoint Ahsan Iftikhar Nagi Amid Controversy Over Unprofessional Conduct

Multan Sultans, a prominent franchise in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), has welcomed Ahsan Iftikhar Nagi to its management team. Nagi, formerly the Media Manager for the Pakistani men’s cricket team during the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 in India, joins the franchise in a key role.

The announcement was accompanied by a lighthearted gesture from Multan Sultans owner, Ali Tareen. In a post on social media, Tareen shared a photo alongside Nagi and Multan Sultans General Manager, Hijab Zahid. In a playful nod to recent criticism, Nagi was seen holding the Pakistan cricket team’s shorts, poking fun at local journalists who had ridiculed him for wearing shorts in stadiums during the World Cup.

The controversy surrounding Nagi’s attire arose during the World Cup, where some sports journalists deemed his choice of wearing shorts as unprofessional. Criticisms included allegations of not providing inside information about the team and spending more time with foreign journalists rather than engaging with local sports journalists.

It’s worth noting that Nagi’s predecessor, Ibrahim Badees, faced similar accusations. Badees, who spent a significant amount of time with foreign journalists, now holds a position in Cricket Australia.

The inclusion of Ahsan Iftikhar Nagi in Multan Sultans’ management signals a new chapter for the franchise, and the playful response from Ali Tareen adds a touch of humor to the situation. The team looks forward to leveraging Nagi’s experience in its continued pursuit of success in the PSL.
