LAHORE Pakistan all-rounder and T20 captain Shahid Afridi has got consolation from former Pakistan captains in his ball-tempering saga that led him to face two-match ban. Afridi is not the only one who thinks that all teams tamper with the ball. Pakistans World Cup winning former captain Imran Khan and another ex-skipper Ramiz Raja feel the same. Afridi, who has been banned for two Twenty20 matches for tampering with the ball in a One-dayer against Australia in Perth, has claimed that all teams try such tactics to exploit the conditions to their advantage. Backing Afridis claim, Imran said only the sub-continental teams are punished for the offence. It is nothing new, when we were playing and developed reverse swing we were accused of being cheats and tampering with the ball, but when the English and other bowlers did it became an art, he said. However, both Imran and Ramiz didnt condone Afridis behaviour in gnawing into the ball. Imran insisted he never tampered with the ball in his playing days as other teams did. There have been several recorded incidents of teams trying to change condition of the ball through various methods, he claimed. Ramiz also insisted that ball tampering was done by most of the teams. It is nothing new but what Afridi did is totally unacceptable. He was not playing in a club match. It was an international match in front of many cameras and he should have avoided this moment of madness, he said. Having the will and desire to win is one thing but doing something like what he did is another thing as it embarrassed all of us, he said. He said Afridi had spoilt his own image by his actions. You certainly dont want a captain who loses his cool this way although he has shown all the qualities of making our team fight, he said. Ramiz also called on the Pakistan Cricket Board to set up an inquiry committee to find out why Afridi did what he did. It is not a small matter and needs to be looked into as it should never have happened, he added.
