The International Cricket Council (ICC) issued a reprimand to Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja for wearing a black armband. Khawaja emphasised that the gesture was a reflection of a personal bereavement rather than a political statement. He made these remarks while speaking to the media at the launch of the Multicultural Action Plan at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Sources at Cricket Australia confirm that discussions are underway, and a decision will be reached soon. However, the ICC has not confirmed the penalty yet.
