Naseem Shah revenges Afghanistan for showing lack of sportsmanship

Pakistan's nail-biting win versus Afghanistan sends India home

Pakistan are into the Asia Cup 2022 finals after thrashing away Afghanistan in their second Super 4 game of the event. At first, they defeated India to polish their possibilities of being in the grand finale and demolished Mohammad Nabi’s men later to fix the slot to see Sri Lanka on September 11th.

It looked like Nabi and co would clutch the triumph with Pakistan’s last scalp remaining and 12 needed of seven. After the Nabi’s players showed a lack of sportsmanship towards Pakistani finisher Asif Ali, Naseem, taking care of that last wicket remaining, decided to revenge for the misconduct with two back-to-back sixes.

Naseem’s fiery celebrations, in the end, showed how much anger he held in himself against the Afghanistanis who raised heated arguments against Asif for no reason. He kept it in within himself and took retaliation through the win, letting Afghans cry once again after their poor on-field behaviour with Pakistanis.

Not only a bunch of players, but their waterboy threw his aggression on Asif. Here is how people are reacting.

This is not the first time things like this happened between Pakistanis and Afghanistanis, as the Afghanistan fan got to the ground and also urged physical violence on a Pakistani fan outside the stadium. The incident took place after the men in green handed over them defeat in the World Cup 2019 match.
