England’s Pacer Liam Plunkett may find himself in serious trouble after a clip of him allegedly tempering the ball has gone viral on social media.
Liam Plunkett Tempered the Ball: Cricket Fans Are Not Happy and they’re protesting on Twitter and other Social Media Platforms.
England’s strike bowler is facing contention after he was spotted scratching the ball. Will Internation Cricket Council-ICC look into this matter? Watch the Video.
Both teams scored more than 700 runs in this high-scoring venture. Pakistan’s batting gave Fans a glimpse of what can be expected from them in the upcoming mega event of World Cup.
The incident took place when Pakistan was chasing down the target. The English fast bowler Liam Plunkett bowled the penultimate over in which he conceded 8 runs and picked up the wicket of Faheem Ashraf.
This incident reminded of the sandpaper gate that happened in Cape Town in 2018. Cameron Bancroft used sandpaper to alter the conditions of the ball. Later it was revealed that David Warner And Steve Smith were the alleged mastermind of all this setup. CA conducted an inquiry and banned them from international Cricket.
Cricket fans are not happy with his actions to win the game. They’re also angry with ICC for not taking any action yet. This is what they’re saying:

Is @ICC drunk? Ain't it seeing how #LiamPlunkett tempered with the ball? I remember the same entity was quick to respond in 2010 when Ami Asif and Salman were accused, why so much biasedness #BiasedICC
