Match 22 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) witnessed a war of words between Pakistan teammates Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Amir. The two were seen gesturing and having a go at each other during the match between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans. Saturday’s incident comes a few days after two more Pakistani internationals – Rahat Ali and Imad Wasim – were involved in a heated exchange during Match 19 of the PSL’s third season. In the videos doing the rounds on social media, Karachi skipper Shahid Afridi can be seen calming the tempers down by asking Amir to go back to his bowling mark.
Batting first, Karachi posted a challenging total of 188/3. Joe Denly starred for Karachi with a 55-ball 78, with Babar Azam too scoring a fifty (58). In reply, Multan were bundled out for 125 thanks to a magical spell from Afridi.
The former Pakistan captain’s spell of 3/18 won him the Player of the Match award. Mohammad Irfan chipped in with two wickets for Karachi.
With four wins under their belt, Karachi find themselves at the third position on the points table. On the other hand, Multan are 4th with 9 points from as many matches.
