The Pakistan-Afghanistan match in the Super Four of the Asia Cup was full of excitement on the field and in the gallery. There have been bloody clashes. Pakistan reached the final after defeating Afghanistan by just 1 wicket in a breathtaking match. In the 19th over of the match, Pakistan’s hard hitter Asif Ali and Afghan pacer Farooq Ahmed almost got into a fight. According to the sources of bloodshed in the gallery! At the end of the match, Afghanistan fans were seen hitting Pakistan fans with chairs. The videos have already gone viral on social media. However, the police have not arrested anyone in this case so far. However, there is a back and forth between the two boards. Pakistani pace great Shoaib Akhtar has called Afghans ‘disgusting’. On the other hand, Shafiq Stanikzai, the former chief executive of the Afghanistan Cricket Board, called for the ban of Asif Ali. Now PCB chief Ramiz Raja entered the field. He announced filing a written complaint citing the incident as a ‘terrorist activity’. Ramiz told local media, ‘You cannot associate terrorist activities with cricket. And such environment will make you sick. We will inform the ICC in writing, outlining our concerns. I will do what I can. Because the scenes were horrible. This is not the first time such a thing has happened. Losing and winning are part of the game. It was a fiercely contested fight. But emotions should be kept under control. If the environment is not good, you can never progress as a cricket playing country. And because of this, we will convey our pain and frustration to the ICC. We have a responsibility to the fans, anything could have happened. Our team could have been in danger. We will complain according to protocol.’
