Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar and previous Afghanistan Cricket Board leader Shafiq Stanikzai were involved in a heated alternate on Twitter after an unruly scene broke out between enthusiasts of both teams in Sharjah.
Pakistan and Afghanistan played out a nail-biting thriller on Wednesday at Sharjah inside the first-rate four stages of the continuing Asia Cup. Naseem Shah hit again-to-again sixes off the first two balls of the final over as Pakistan sealed a one-wicket win to guarantee themselves an area within the final along Sri Lanka. But, after the match came to a quit, the Sharjah Cricket Stadium changed into a witness to unsavory scenes as Afghanistan fans, surely disenchanted with the loss, had been seen breaking chairs and assaulting Pakistan lovers. Afghani fans were disappointed with their match to result in Super 4 of the Asia Cup but this is not acceptable behavior.

In a video shared with the aid of former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar, Afghan fanatics may be seen breaking chairs and then throwing them in the direction of the Pakistan supporters.
“This is what Afghan fans are doing. This is what they’ve executed in the past more than one time. This is a sport and it’s speculated to be played and brought in the proper spirit.@ShafiqStanikzai your crowd & your players each want to study a few things if you guys need to grow in the game,” Akhtar wrote in a Twitter submission.
