Sharjah Police Imposes Hefty Fine on Afghan Fans for Destroying Stadium Property
Afghanistan and India were ousted from the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4s match on Tuesday, and there was some violence and terrible situations both on and off the field.
Pakistan’s exciting victory over Mohammad Nabi’s team has led the United Arab Emirates authorities to resolve to take harsh action against the spectators who were involved in damaging stadium property.
The attendees who damaged the stadium’s property were fined AED3,000 (about Rs. 190,000) by Sharjah police, who also threatened to deport them if it happened again.
Details indicate that the situation deteriorated when Pakistan’s Asif Ali was dismissed by Afghan bowler Fareed Ahmad, and the two players spat insults, leading the Afghanis to attack Pakistani spectators with chairs.
Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has also expressed his worries regarding the occurrence and has made the decision to protest to the International Cricket Council (ICC) at the upcoming meeting.
This game doesn’t desire a situation like that. Really poor visuals were present. This wasn’t the first time something like had occurred. We own our fans, emotions should be kept in check, and we’ve filed a complaint with the ICC, he said.
