What's common between South African batting star Hashim Amla and rookie Jammu and Kashmir and Pune Warriors' off-spinner Parvez Rasool? Apart from being cricketers, both have refused to endorse liquor brands on their team clothing because of religious sentiments.
According to a report in the Indian Express, the Pune Warriors' player has removed the logo of a liquor brand - an IPL sponsor - from his team jersey. The bowler who debuted for Pune earlier this week and called it the "proudest day of his life," has reportedly informed the team management of his decision to not sport the logo as "it hurts his religious sentiments."
The 24-year-old said he initially did not realize that the logo belonged to an alcohol brand. When he did, he took 'immediate action.'
