Pakistan levelled the series against Ireland with a convincing seven-wicket victory in the second T20I on Sunday. After being asked to bat first, Ireland posted a competitive total of 193 runs for the loss of seven wickets. In response, Pakistan chased down the target comfortably in 16.5 overs, powered by outstanding performances from Mohammad Rizwan (75* off 46) and Fakhar Zaman (78 off 40).

However, ahead of the game against Ireland, an unfortunate incident occurred for the team led by Babar Azam, as their star pacer, Shaheen Shah Afridi, engaged in a heated argument with an Afghan fan.

Shaheen Afridi hits back as Afghan fan misbehaves with him

In recent times, Pakistan and Afghanistan have had numerous closely contested matches in white-ball formats, often accompanied by heated exchanges among fans in the stands. Afghan supporters have been known to taunt and ridicule Pakistan players.

A similar incident occurred when Shaheen was making his way from the dressing room to the ground, and an Afghan fan began using offensive language towards the Pakistani pacer. Initially, Shaheen addressed the fan regarding his behaviour, but when it persisted, Shaheen promptly notified security personnel. The security team acted swiftly and removed the fan from the venue.
