A reckless spectator invited Indian fast bowler Mohammad Shami’s ire at the KIA Oval, London after the conclusion of India-Pakistan Champions Trophy finals.
The incident happened when Team India was walking back after the loss to the dressing room. While taking the stairs towards the pavilion, a fan constantly tried mocking the entire team. No one bothered replying to him. But, Shami was in no mood to just let go the individual.
He clearly seemed unhappy with the behaviour and stopped in the middle to give a cold stare and tried approaching the fan who was still displaying his arrogance. Luckily there were volunteers who handled the situation and calmed things down.MS Dhoni also intervened to take Shami with him to the rest toom.
Emotions always high in the crowd even though the players amintain a high amount of respect and dignity.
Earlier, a over joyed Pakistan fan and another dejected Indian fan had the attention of London police after the duo got into a skirmish in the metro subway. The incident happened after the match was over.
The serious argument kicked off after a Pakistani mocked an Indian in an uncontrlled manner. The matter was negginning to getout of the hands as the two came too close to each ther while spitting expletives. Police had to eventually interevene to sort things out and luckily no mob gathered.
Pakistan created history as they handed India a 180 run loss in the all-important game, its heaviest loss in the history of the Champions Trophy history. Left arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir and opener Fakhar Zaman made the win possible and ppushed India to the corner.
After choosing to bowl first, Pakistan posted a total of 337/4. Fakhar Zaman, with the help of his maiden ODI century, led the charge in the batting department along with Azhar Ali and Mohammad Hafeez.
Later, Mohammad Amir wrecked India with the ball, getting rid of the core of the batting line-up – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. The rest of the order also slumped very quickly. Barring Hardik Pandya, no one showed any steel and the game was in Pakistan’s pocket.
