Gulabdin Naib is the culprit here.. and it was clearly after Trott's signal to slow the game down.
Should ICC Take any action?

Umpires should be able to grant 5 run penalty. Enter that or match referee should ban him for a game. Not good at all.
 
Yes. Naib should be penalized.

This will set precident of non- tolerance against these type of football dives.
 
Deserves a small fine for sure. The commentators weren't able to control their laughter.
 
He made it too obvious lol. The way he fell down, two guys came and took him away was lol worthy 😂😂😂

Rashid was like. I could have just changed the field what was the need for this Oscar level acting?
That video is trending massively. I still cannot stop laughing at seeing the video.
 
What was Gulbadin Naib's greatest performance at this World Cup: the four wickets vs Australia, or that cramp. :kp
 
Rashid was finding it very hard to keep a straight face, yet he did well to seem unhappy about the delay. 😂
 
Can't win without cheating. Australia should be in the semis.

SA crush these cheats please.
I know it stings that they ended up in the semis and Pakistan didn’t even go past the first stage. Its a good slap in the face of arrogant Pakistani fans who think Afghans are beneath them.

Regardless of this “cheating”, Bangladesh lost due to their own indecisiveness not because Naib faked an injury.

We own them we made them. Simple. Without us they wouldn't exist.
 
Still a bunch of cheats and backstabbers.
You can't say this was cheating its was unnecessary delaying tactic which everyone used when rain is around or Any lunch,tea time in test cricket .Yes he can be fined but dont say they cheated to win the matches

Well they own you now. They are in the semis. Whilst you couldnt get past the first stage. Deal with it. Congrats to Afghans, happy for them.
 
Who cares?

Bangladesh bottles this and pakistanis are hating the fact that afghanistan is ahead of them in this icc tournament
 
If you wanna start fining and banning for this, Please start with rizwan who does this daily and in every game.

Over here it makes sense, since tactically Afghanistan needed some time to think. Is it cheating? Kinda, however if Bangladesh were good enough they'd make it through, No one told them to get out and gift 2 wickets to Rashid Khan. So no biggie.

In rizwan's case it happens 1 or 2x per game in t20 and in odi, during the Sri lanka chase it happened a total of 12x to the point that even the commentators started laughing and got frustrated.

Gotta be fair on all fronts at the end of the day.

You believe it was genuine?
 
If shakib did this we might have seen 2000 hate meems by the troll pages about now

He was hit by an invisible bullet
 
first man in history to pull a hamstring crouching :yk

What an idiot embarrassing his country .
 
No because they hate Pakistan despite literally growing up there and relying on our charity to survive.
Maybe you should have given them Pakistani citizenship and treated them as equals rather than as second class. Rashid Khan and Gurbaaz might have been playing for Pakistan today.
 
Neither did I but it seems they were ahead d/l .

He may probably leave his bat & walk out with crutches next game
The British government has to put up with this level of acting from some Afghans crossing the border.
 
Well I know what to do now when Rain is around the corner and my team can avoid defeat
 
No need to be too harsh on him.

He should be sent to attend few days rehabilitation session and acting course:inti
 
@Mamoon would argue it’s because Zadran paid tribute to his style of batting that got Afghanistan in the Semi Final
Afghanistan openers produced the biggest exhibition of tuk tuk we have seen in history of this format and they still won, proving that there is more than way to skin a cut, thus proving your narrative wrong.

More than one way to skin a cat against Bangladesh :ROFLMAO:

It’s unfortunate because Pakistan were applying this method against India, and you were celebrating around the 10th over mark in the second innings. Nirala sweets are still searching for the guy who placed a large order but never came to collect it from them that day

Pakistan were doing perfectly fine until Fakhar Zaman showed that one track mind fans’ favorite words “aggression” and “intent” is not always the solution.

They were also doing fine until Imad showed everyone how big a fraud he is and how terribly wrong his deluded fans were about him. Also, the less said about Shadab and Iftikhar the better.

Pakistan lost that match in the second half of the innings, not because of the way Babar and Rizwan batted.

“Against Bangladesh”

Don’t hide behind terms and conditions now. SR is entirely dependent on match situation and conditions. Showing aggression and intent aren’t always the right thing to do.
 
Rashid Khan (Afghanistan Captain) post-match Press Conference - 24th June 2024

[Reporter:]

I just need to one thing, that what happened in the field with Gulbadin Naib, it's already criticised in the social media. Can you please share with us?

Another thing, Australia is supporting Bangladesh today because they also want to qualify for the semi. Do you want to say something to the Australian cricket team and can you please tell me what happened in the field with Gulbadan Naib?

[Rashid Khan:]

Well, he had some cramp, I don't know what happened to him and I don't know what's going on in social media but that doesn't matter - it's just the end field injury which comes and then we haven't lost any overs, the rain came and we just went off, it's not something like brought a massive difference in the game. We came back on field after five minutes and there was no massive difference. For me, it's just like a small injury comes in, then you have to take some time.

For the Australian team - well, definitely, if we were in the place of Australia, we would have supported the same team. What you want is to go ahead in the competition and support the opposite team where they beat the team on the day and they get into the semis. We knew the support would be right there. They will be supporting but I can't say anything. We played good cricket, right cricket. I think we deserve to be in the semis and that's all I can say. If you play good cricket, right cricket, it doesn't matter whatever the team you are, you deserve to be in the semis.
 
Everyone knows that he was faking it but you can’t prove it and therefore, you can’t fine/ban people based on assumptions.

It’s funny how I’m having this dumb debate with you about playing ODI style cricket in T20 to be successful. I have a feeling maybe I am in a coma, everything around me is an illusion.

Ah well, I guess the reality is that you cannot broaden the minds of those who haven’t the means to think beyond limits considering their setting. Regardless of how educated or privileged they are in those settings.

There is no need of this pseudo philosophy just because Afghanistan proved you wrong.

Style of cricket means nothing. It all depends on the situation and the conditions.

Babar and Rizwan have cost Pakistan in certain games where the pitch was very flat and conductive to big scores. However, replacing them with two sloggers will equally cost Pakistan in games where the pitch is not flat.

Everyone talks about how England won the ODI World Cup because of their power hitting approach, but people conveniently forget that in the same World Cup, they got out for 212 in 47 overs vs Sri Lanka and had to huff and puff their way to 241 on a slow pitch in the final.

This is after they scored 211 in 49.5 overs in the CT semifinal two years prior in an era where they would aim to score 400+ every time they would bat.

If you adopt a style of cricket and want to impose it without looking at the conditions, you will not succeed.
 
In the 2007 w/cup finals Australia vs Sri lanka. GILCHRIST PUT A SQUASH BALL IN HIS GLOVES FOR A BETTER GRIP. HE DID ADMIT IT. Nothing was done about that CHEATING ACT. (y) :mad:
 
Australia dumped from T20 World Cup but Afghanistan’s tactics under scrutiny

Australia are out of the Twenty20 World Cup after Afghanistan created history by beating Bangladesh to qualify for the semi-finals, but the minnows’ heroic performance was marred by questions about the spirit of cricket.

As a tense match neared its conclusion, Afghanistan all-rounder Gulbadin Naib appeared to take a dive at slip to delay the game after coach Jonathan Trott was seen on camera urging his players to slow the game down as another rain shower approached.

Afghanistan will play South Africa in the first semi-final in Guyana on Thursday morning (AEST) following their eight-run victory by the DLS method, after India beat Australia by 24 runs in St Lucia 11 hours earlier.

Gulbadin may be forced to explain to the match referee why he collapsed to the ground clutching his hamstring after Trott’s animated signals from the sidelines.

The player of the match in Afghanistan’s victory over Australia two days earlier, Gulbadin limped from the ground during the third of four rain breaks but later returned unhindered to bowl.

Captain Rashid Khan was unimpressed with his fieldsman’s antics, later saying they couldn’t do anything about the rain, which at that stage had Afghanistan just ahead on Duckworth-Lewis-Stern calculations.

“Mentally, you have to play 20 overs and take 10 wickets. That’s the only way we can get to the semi-finals. There’s no other way,” Rashid said.

“He had some cramp, I think, so hopefully he’ll be alright, but that wicket he has given to us [the eighth wicket to fall] was a massive wicket for us.”

Gulbadin was condemned by broadcast commentators, with former New Zealand fast bowler Simon Doull saying, “That’s not on” and claiming he should “go and play in the Euros [leagues]”. Former Australian captain Lisa Sthalekar questioned whether the sudden and short-lived injury breached the spirit of the game.

Australia, having lost to India by 24 runs earlier in the day, needed Bangladesh to beat Afghanistan by less than 62 runs or in more than 12.1 overs in the last Super Eights match to reach the semi-finals with a superior run rate.

Two days after Afghanistan scored 6-148 to claim a historic victory over Australia in St Vincent, they successfully defended 5-115 on the same tricky pitch, bowling Bangladesh out for 105. It was Afghanistan’s second victory in the Super Eights stage. Australia managed just one win from three games.

India’s victory confirmed their place in the second semi-final against England in Guyana early on Friday morning (AEST). A blazing 92 from just 41 balls by captain Rohit Sharma drove India to 5-205. The final is in Barbados early on Sunday morning (AEST).

In what became his last game for Australia, David Warner went with a whimper, caught at slip for six following an outswinger from Arshdeep Singh. Waiting for the result of the last game meant Warner’s retirement send-off was put on hold until the early hours of the morning.

“We’ll give him a send-off tonight if that is the case later on. It might be a bit of a late one if the fixture finishes the way it has,” Australia’s highest scorer, Travis Head, said after Australia’s loss before heading back to the team hotel.

“A lot has been said about how good Davey has been at the top of the order. He goes down as our best multi-format player. He’ll be missed at the top of the order, but let’s hope it’s not the end of it.”

Now this thread will stretch and Pakistani posters will try to lay into Afghanistan to vent out their frustration.
Time wasting is done in every damn match of cricket, How many times does a batsman need drinks and fresh gloves?
How many times are the shoe laces need to be tied again?
No one noticed, but Litton Das called for fresh gloves and drinks one ball after the one of the resumptions.

He openly flaunted it after reaching his century. He was hiding nothing.
That was still cheating. Is a squash ball part of a batsman's gear? Should have been fined and the cup given to Sri Lanka. But Alas the Untouchable Aussis can and always get away with murder. :mad:
