It was for bereavement: Usman Khawaja to challenge ICC’s charge on wearing black armband

Australian opener Usman Khawaja, who smashed a 90 in the second innings of the first Test against Pakistan in Perth, has found himself in off-field turmoil with the ICC over display of personal expression on the field. Khawaja, who was seen wearing a black armband in the Perth Test last week, was pulled up by ICC for doing so without prior approval from Cricket Australia and the global cricketing body. However, Khawaja has hit back saying that the armband he wore was for personal bereavement (the only way it is allowed) and will challenge ICC’s verdict.
