Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has lashed out at Afghanistan fans for showing violent behaviour after their team’s loss to Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match on Wednesday, September 7. Afghanistan lost to Pakistan by one wicket in a nail-biting contest at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. However, after the defeat, frustrated Afghan fans started breaking chairs in the stadium and clashes were also reported between Afghan and Pakistani fans as well.

Inzamam-ul-Haq, who has coached Afghanistan in the past, expressed his disappointment at the behaviour of the Afghan fans. While speaking on his YouTube channel, he commented: “I have coached Afghanistan in the past and I was really shocked with the kind of scenes I saw. Even today, Pakistanis are involved in coaching Afghanistan. Rashid (Latif) has worked with them, so has Younus Khan. Umar Gul is with the team. As I said, I have also been involved with them. It’s not like you are losing only against Pakistan, you lose to everyone. You lost to Sri Lanka and India as well, but you never reacted like this. I am really disappointed by their behavior. This is totally unacceptable.”

“I am very disappointed with the behavior of Afghanistan fans. This is the second time I am witnessing such shocking behavior from them. I saw this during the World Cup as well. Winning and losing is part of the game. You can’t fight and react like this. It will create a lot of trouble for them and the team. You have come to watch a match. Yes, appreciate your team, but if the other team is doing well, appreciate them as well. If they don’t change their attitude, their team won’t win going ahead as well,” Inzamam-ul-Haq concluded.
