Watch: Afghan fans vandalize stadium, hurl chairs at Pakistanis!!


Following their last-over defeat to Pakistan in an Asia Cup Super 4 match on Wednesday that put them out of the competition, angry and dejected Afghanistan cricket fans trashed the stadium and engaged in scattered fistfights outside the stadium premises.

Afghanistan fans hurled chairs toward Pakistanis after their defeat in Asia Cup

The match began in high spirits, with players from both teams exchanging embraces and jokes, but quickly became hostile as Pakistan batter Asif Ali was embroiled in an ugly incident with Afghanistan fast bowler Fareed Ahmed in the 19th over.



Many compared the circumstances to the memorable Dennis Lillee-Javed Miandad exchange during a Test match between Australia and Pakistan in 1983.

Before things could get out of hand, the Afghan and Pakistani players were separated.
