The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced that they will file a complaint with the International Cricket Council (ICC) after such violent clashes. Ramiz Raja said, “Look, there should never be any nuisance in cricket and it spoils the environment.
“It was very bad and it’s not the first time. We will write to ICC against this and raise our voice, whatever happens in our bus, we will do it, because there were scenes. Victory on the field means defeat. It was a very good fight. I should have controlled my emotions.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) also issued a statement in response to the controversy. Throughout their career, the Afghanistan team has always represented Afghan values with their best performances. Cricket is actually known as ‘Gentleman’s Game’. We hope that others will also respect the passion and dedication towards the sport and maintain the love and harmony between the two countries.
