Afghan fan reportedly tries to attack Wahab, gets tackled by security
The picture of a salty Afghanistan fan went viral on Saturday who tried to attack Wahab Riaz after Pakistan beat the Afghan cricket team to keep its semi-final hopes alive.
After Pakistan won the match against Afghanistan, an Afghan fan tried to attack Wahab Riaz. The picture shows him being tackled to the ground by an ICC official.
We’re not sure whether the fan wanted to attack Wahab or was just storming the ground, but people on Twitter claim that the anguished fan wanted to inflict harm on the right-arm pacer who played a crucial role in steering Pakistan to a thrilling victory over the Afghans.
Seriously Afghani fans are real disgrace to the Game of Cricket, they actually tryed to attack our boys after they got beaten by us.#ICC should take strong action against them and their Afghan Cricket board should also seekh apology from PCB.#PakVsAfghan #ShameAfghanistan 🇦🇫 pic.twitter.com/4SvXhBxms5

There is no nice way to say it.. Afghan cricket fans are uncultured animals. Some salty fans tried to attack the Pakistani players at the end. Explains why the team was rushed of the field immediately.

A few Afghan spectators tried to assault the Pakistani duo that won the match for their team. In this picture, one of them is nabbed by the ICC security official. Shameful! #SoreLosers #PAKvAFG #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/vO1ePMtDZz
