With the ICC deciding to experiment with red card in cricket, it has got another point in its favour. On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the PSL witnessed some ugly incident.

During the Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi match, Ahmed Shehzad and Wahab Riaz were involved in a physical fight that was interrupted by the team-mates and umpires.

In the fifth over of the Gladiators’ innings, Shehzad smoked Riaz for a big six. On the very next ball, the bowler castled Shehzad with a slower one and let out a loud scream as Shehzad walked back to the pavillion.

Perhaps Shehzad was not impressed and raised his bat towards his Pakistan team-mate and to this Riaz uttered some words. Both pushed each other but the Zalmi players quickly came in-between to prevent any further contact between the two.

Zalmi won the match by eight wickets but the incident became the talking point on Sunday.

PCB slaps fines

Both have been fined heavily and given a warning by the Cricket Board for a heated on-field altercation during a PSL match in the UAE.

While Shehzad was fined 30 per cent of his match fee, Riaz was penalised 40 per cent of his game earnings by match referee Roshan Mahanama.

“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,” a PCB official said.

          Thats a and a Muslim for you. There was no reason for this bloke Wahab to get so dam excited. May be the English County which signed will have to reconsider it all over again.

                Muslims are talking about the "w world" watching. I did nt this . It was on this online newspaper which caught my attention. 1.2 BILLION Inians didnt watch it. They were watching T20 replays of their wins against Aussies and their routing the Sri Lankans. Equally we are proud of the U19 finalists. China with a potion of 1.3 BILLION dont know cricket and they watch it either. So, s can tone down their hype about "w world watching." We have better things to do.
