Pakistan and Afghanistan fans clash at Headingley

Pakistan and Afghanistan fans clash at Headingley

While videos kept surfacing on Twitter of clashes between the two sets of fans outside the stadium throughout the first half of the game, media reports from the spot said that fans had to be evicted from the Headingley Cricket Ground.

The supporters of the two teams reportedly clashed outside the match in Headingley on Saturday. As the melee continued outside the stadium, journalists trying to film the scenes were also assaulted.

There were reports of Afghan player Mohammad Nabi being taken out by a security guard as he chased pitch invaders, while ESPN Cricket said there was "rioting" in the stands as fans hurled drinks bottles at each other.

West Yorkshire Police have been contacted for comment. We will not tolerate this type of behaviour, and will take appropriate action against any anti-social behaviour that spoils the enjoyment for the majority of fans. Refugees and drugs and terror and American influence moved through this border freely for about 40 years before it was closed temporarily in 2017.

Colors of Pakistan and Afghanistan fill Headingley today.

The win means Pakistan now have a very real chance of pipping England to a spot in the semifinals, and they will be hoping great rivals India can do them a favor by beating the hosts when they meet at Edgbaston on Sunday. But Pakistani innings collapsed further from 121-3 to 156-6 as Afghan spinners applied pressure. Are you also in love with Shaheen's bowling spell?
