In a recent match at the National Bank Arena in Karachi, there was a heated argument between Pakistan all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed and former Test batter Asad Shafiq.
Iftikhar, playing for Karachi Ghazis, dismissed Asad Shafiq from the Larkana Challengers during a 161-run chase. After the dismissal, Iftikhar celebrated in a way that upset Asad, who approached him angrily. The umpires and teammates had to step in to separate the two players. Ultimately, Karachi Ghazis won the match by 68 runs.
