Here’s why Pakistani cricket fans are trending hashtag #PakistanVsNamakHarams on Twitter


Pakistan’s crucial match against its neighbour and cricketing minnows Afghanistan was marred by an ugly scuffle between the supporters of the two teams outside the Headingley cricket ground. The violent fight between the supporters of the two teams was reportedly triggered by an airplane flying overhead towing the message Justice for Balochistan.


The message is concerning the Balochistan province, where Baloch nationalists have been fighting for independence with the help of Afghanistan.

News agency ANI said that the Leeds’ Air Traffic control will investigate how the airplane was able to fly over the stadium with a political message attached.

Meanwhile, Pakistani cricket fans have taken to Twitter to vent out their frustration against supporters of the Afghanistani cricket team. Calling them ungrateful,’ they launched a hashtag #PakistanVsNamakHarams implying that Saturday’s match was being played between Pakistan and a bunch of ungrateful players.

Here’s how they reacted:

Pakistan still has hopes to secure a semi-final spot if they manage to defeat Afghanistan in Headingley.
