World Cup 2019: Afghan supporters beat Pakistani fans outside Leads stadium

Few ugly scenes have emerged from outside the Leads Stadium as Pakistan is playing against Afghanistan in a crucial World cup 2019 match.

A few Afghan supporters were seen attacking Pakistani fans inside and outside Headingley cricket stadium in Leeds.

We are aware of some scuffles among a minority of fans and are currently working with the venue security team and the local police force, West Yorkshire Police, to ensure there are no further incidents,” an ICC spokesperson said.

“We do not condone this type of behaviour, and will take appropriate action against any anti-social behaviour that spoils the enjoyment for the majority of fans.”

Video footages of the incident from outside the ground show Afghanistan fans attacking  Pakistani supporters.

Few reports claim that some Afghan fans tried to enter the stadium illegally, without any tickets.

Few of the Afghan supporters were ejected from stadium by security; many invaded the stadium jumping the wall, occupying seats without tickets.

Reportedly Afghan fans also clashed with security officials and harassed Pakistani media personnel covering the World Cup group stage game between the two neighbor countries.

 

 

 

This violent behaviour by Afghani supports has left cricket fans all over the world in shock, and seems to be one of its kind incedent in recent cricket history.
