Both Pakistan cricket team-mates Wahab Riaz and Ahmed Shehzad have been given a warning and fined heavily by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a heated on-field altercation during a PSL (Pakistan Super League) match on Sunday at Sharjah.

The match was between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi. The incident happened in the 4.2 overs, when Quetta Gladiators’ right-handed batsman Ahmed Shehzad was bowled out by Peshawar Zalmi’s left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz. Both players exchanged harsh words to each other on the pitch while Riaz pushed Shehzad. Eventually, the other on-field players came into there and separated them.

Match referee Roshan Mahanama fined both the players. Shehzad was fined for 30% match fees while Riaz was fined for 40% match fees for that disgraceful incident. 

Later PCB also warned them. A PCB official said, “The players have been asked to behave as such incidents hampers the image of Pakistan cricket as millions are watching the PSL around the globe. Physical contact is a serious offence and we don’t take it lightly, this time the players have just been cautioned privately since they were fined by the match referee.”

In the upcoming Asia Cup T20 and World T20, Riaz has been included in the Pakistan squad while Shehzad has been omitted from the Pakistan squad due to his inconsistent form.
