The match had ups and downs and, in the end, Pakistan won by one wicket. Pacer Nasim Shah was the star of the show as he hit the first two balls of the final for a six and secured a place in the final for his team. But after the end of the match, there were bad scenes in the stadium after the seats were broken by the Afghan fans and there was even a fight between the supporters of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
A video of the commotion was shared on Twitter by former Pakistani point guard Shoaib Akhtar, who wrote: This is a game and it must be played and absorbed in the right spirit. ShafiqStanikzai, both your fans and your players need to learn a few things if you want to grow in this sport.
It is important to note that Shafiq chose to flag Stanikzai, who appears to be the former CEO of the Afghanistan Cricket Board, in his position. Stanikzai also responded to Akhtar's tweet, saying, "You can't control the emotions of the fans and such incidents have happened in the multi-cricket world.
They should ask Kabir Khan, Enzyme Bhai and @iRashidLatif68 how we dealt with them. Next time I will give advice to baat ko nation pe Mat lena."
