Quintin DeKock
Pakistani cricket fans throughout the nation have been speaking out against Quintin DeKock for intentionally distracting Fakhar Zaman in an ODI game played last night.

Pakistan’s run chase was led by Fakhar Zaman who played a beautiful 193 in 155 balls. However the way he got run out is what has caused the stir on twitter.
Zaman hit the ball down his off side and ran for a double with Haris Rauf. However when he was coming back to the crease Quintin DeKock’s gesture suggested that the ball had headed to the non strikers end only to be surprised by a run out.

The  Marylebone Cricket Club also took to twitter to explain the law regarding the situation stating “Law 41.5.1 states: “It is unfair for any fielder wilfully to attempt, by word or action, to distract, deceive or obstruct either batsman after the striker has received the ball”

Cricket fanatics, journalists, celebrities have been taking to twitter to suggest their remarks. Scroll down to see.
