'Kar de bhai, koi naya dekh raha', says Shahid Afridi as Shoaib Malik inspired him to tamper with pitch after 'cylinder blast' in 2005


Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was known for his destructive batting and all-rounder abilities during his playing days. He scored 100 runs in 37 balls against Sri Lanka in 1996. Afridi was also known for his bowling skills, with leg-spin making him the Man of the Tournament in the 2007 T20 World Cup. He also has 395 ODI wickets and 98 T20I wickets to his name. Afridi is also known and known for his controversies apart from his cricketing skills. He once tampered with the ball, sledged Sachin Tendulkar on the pitch and made controversial remarks on the Indian state of Kashmir.

Many fans still remember his 2005 pitch tampering episode which eventually led to a ban on 1 Test and 2 ODIs respectively. In a recent TV interview, Afridi admitted the crime and said that it was his teammate Shoaib Malik who inspired him to commit the cricket offence. This was done during a Test vs England in Faisalabad.

“It was a good series. That Test was in Faisalabad. Trust me, it was a Test and the ball was not turning, nor was it getting any swing or seam. It was getting boring. I was doing my best. I was trying hard and nothing was happening. Then suddenly a gas cylinder exploded and everyone was distracted. I said to Malik, ‘My heart wants me to make a patch here. Ball to turn! ‘ (I want to patch this pitch so badly. I want the ball to turn!),” Afridi said on Sama TV.

Shoaib Malik replied, ‘Kar de. koi nai dekh raha’ (Do this, no one is watching). So I did it! And then what happened is history. When I look back, you know Turns out it was a mistake,” Afridi laughed at the incident.

So far Malik has commented on it.
