Meanwhile, in an unfortunate incident, the tensions started to heat up when England batter Jason Roy was seen in a heated exchange of words with Pakistan international Iftikhar Ahmed. The incident happened in the third over of Quetta’s innings, when Willey beat Roy’s attempted flick and the ball hit his front pad. The umpire raised his finger without any hesitation.

After he was given out, Jason Roy was involved in some heated exchange of words with Iftikhar Ahmed. Iftikhar was seen saying a few words to Roy and was walking in his direction.
