KARACHI: Pakistani cricketer Sohaib Maqsood has reportedly gifted his cricket kit to a girl in Australia citing sources, ARYSports.tv reports.
According to sources, Sohaib Maqsood also met with the lady at his team’s hotel lobby several times as well and is often spotted around the Australian lass.
The rumours of their friendship are also being circulated on social media websites as well, sources said.
However, Sohaib Maqsood himself and the team management deny the friendly relationship.
It should be noted that the cricketer is already facing the helmet controversy which took place during the quarter final against Australia.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq apparently ordered his team mate Sohaib Maqsood to stand at short leg but Maqsood reportedly refused to do so.
The captain took back the helmet from Maqsood and stood on the position himself.
The incident took place when left arm pacer Wahab Riaz was bowling his memorable spell to Shane Watson.
