Akhtar criticises Afghan crowd for not showing 'right spirit'

Pace legend Shoaib Akhtar criticised the Afghan fans for not showing the 'right spirit' after losing to Pakistan by one wicket on Wednesday.

Tail-ender Naseem Shah hit two consecutive sixes off Fazalul Haq Farooqi in the last over to help Pakistan book a spot in the final of the 2022 Asia Cup.

Earlier in the match, Asif Ali and Fareed Ahmad were involved in a skirmish after the Afghan bowler dismissed the Pakistan batter at a crucial moment in the game.

Replying to Akhtar, former Afghanistan Cricket Board chief executive wrote: "You can’t control the emotions of the crowd and such incidents happened in the world of cricket multiple, you should go ask Kabir Khan, Inzimam Bhai and @iRashidLatif68 how we treated them. Am giving you an advice next time baat ko nation pe Mat lena."
