Watch: Heated mid-pitch alteration between Asif Ali and Fareed Ahmad caught the attention of Cricket World

The Super 4 stage match between Afghanistan and Pakistan went down to a fiery finish as tail-ender Nashim Shah hit two consecutive sixes to win the match for Pakistan. But the match took an ugly turn when Pakistan's Asif Ali and Afghanistan's Fareed Ahmad were involved in a mid-pitch fight.

Shah, who is known for his bowling, became the hero of the match with the bat this time in the low-scoring thriller against Pakistan. The tail-ender hit two massive sixes when 11 runs were needed in the final over in the 130-run chase and secured their place in the final of the Asia Cup, 2022.

But the match took an ugly turn when Asif Ali and Afghanistan's Fareed Ahmad were involved in a mid-pitch fight. It all started shortly after Asif Ali's dismissal. Asif hit the bowler for a six and turned the table in Pakistan's favor. But on the very next delivery, Fareed implemented a slower bouncer perfectly which Asif mistimed and the ball went straight to Karim Janat's hands, standing at short fine leg.

Fareed made a furious celebration after taking the wicket. Meanwhile, he was standing too close to Asif causing Asif to lose his temper and push him with his hand. Later, he was also seen hurling his bat before all the other players came to separate this duo.

This situation surely would hurt the game. And both the players can face punishment for breaking the ICC Code of Conduct.

Meanwhile, with Pakistan's win, the hope of India qualifying for the final came to an end and the most successful team of this tournament is now officially knocked out. First getting eliminated from the group stage of T20 WC,2021 and now getting knocked out from the Super 4 Stage of Asia Cup, this must work as a wake-up call for the team India, otherwise, there going to be many more heartbreaks for the millions of Indian fans
