Rashid Khan had to tweet about it because, during a match between Afghanistan and Pakistan, some fans tried to enter the venue without tickets. In this manner, the fans who actually had tickets couldn’t enter the venue and ICC had to later apologize for the mishap. Khan has therefore requested fans to support the organizers.
