Cricket Australia agreed that Fawad Ahmed should not have to wear bear logos and said it was "respectful of his beliefs."
Spin bowler Fawad Ahmed will not have to wear sponsor's beer brand logo on his Australian uniform because of his Muslim faith, the sport's managing body in the country has confirmed.
Ahmed had requested to be excused from wearing the 'VB' logo as it conflicted with his religious beliefs, Fairfax Media said on Tuesday, and CA executive general manager of operations Mike McKenna said the governing body had approved it.
South Africa's Muslim batsman Hashim Amla has also been excused from wearing a beer brand logo on his shirts.
It is great to see that no matter what happens Muslims do not forget and will not forget their great Islamic culture Fawad Ahmed and Hashim Amla are great examples of this.
Alcohol (bear) is haram and sponsoring alcohol by wearing a bear logo is like encouraging people to do haram.
