Rising Concern: Naushad Khan Addresses Scammers Misusing His Identity In Cricket

Team India’s middle-order batter Sarfraz Khan’s father, Naushad Khan, posted a warning video on social media where he can be seen asking young players to be aware of scammers that are using his name and asking for money in exchange for promises of providing coaching facilities for domestic cricket.

This incident took place because of Naushad Khan’s popularity among the people after his son made his debut for India in test match cricket.

Naushad Khan became extremely popular due to his active involvement and support for his son, Sarfraz. It was Naushad’s hard work and dedication that made Sarfraz Khan make his debut for Team India.

However, because of his immense popularity among the people, Naushad Khan became the target of scammers who created various social media accounts under his name, demanding money from young players with a promise to provide them with a chance of playing in the IPL or domestic cricket.

In his video, Naushad Khan said, “Good morning, friends. Once again, I have come in front of you because my name (Naushad Khan) is being used by many people to create fake IDs on Facebook and Instagram. They are asking for money from kids, ensuring that they’ll become a net bowler in the IPL, get selected in the academy, or be on a state team.” 

The astonishing performances of players like Rajat Patidar, Sarfraz Khan, and Dhruv Jurel at the domestic level have helped them represent India on the international stage. This has made domestic cricket once again very popular amongst young and aspiring cricketers.
