‘Naya Pakistan’: Fans invade the field, clash with Afghanistan fans during Cricket World Cup match

Geopolitical tensions have been high between Kabul and Islamabad.

The ‘Naya’ Pakistan is not anything new and still behaving like an arrogant kid who misbehaves with everyone after losing a game. Here Pakistan did not even lose the match, but still, its fans acted like spoilt brat teenagers.

Invading the pitch and clash between the fans is not new in any sports, but in cricket, you will always find Pakistan fans as one of the sides involved in such miscreants.

In the game against Afghanistan, the fight broke out after an aircraft, flying over the ground, displayed a ‘Justice For Balochistan‘ message on a banner. Fans from either the side punched each other inside and outside the stadium.

As soon as the match got over, some fans invaded the pitch, breached the security and heckled the Afghans players.

Pakistani fans have a history of heckling players during the games. In one the incidents, in 1989 a fan tore the Indian skipper, Kris Srikant’s shirt in a test match, another incident happened in 1992 when India and Pakistan players went to London to play a charity match for Imran Khan’s cancer hospital and match called off after the fans invaded the field and punched each other on the pitch.

BCCI threatened Indian players with suspension for participating in any charity game after, as in one of the charity match, the national flag of India was burnt by Pakistani fans. Things have not changed; they are still the same, and so as the Pakistani fans.

Geopolitical tensions have been high between Kabul and Islamabad. The two countries are divided by a porous border, the Durand Line, which was drawn up in 1893 between Afghanistan and British India.
