Afghanistan fans clash with Pakistani fans and security officials in World Cup match

ISLAMABAD - Afghanistan fans clash with Pakistani fans and security officials in World Cup match at Leeds.

Pakistan and Afghanistan fans have, reportedly, clashed in Leeds, during the ongoing 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup match between the two sides.

According to details, a certain faction of Afghanistan supporters, present at the venue, clashed with Pakistan fans and security officials and hurled abuses — both inside and outside the stadium.

Reports further stated that Afghanistan fans also harassed a Pakistani journalist outside the stadium, although he remained safe during the incident.

Earlier Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib won the toss and decided to bat in the World Cup match against Pakistan at Headingley on Saturday.

Pakistan, who have seven points from as many games and are in contention for the semi-finals, kept an unchanged side from the one that beat New Zealand by six wickets at Edgbaston on Wednesday.
