Pakistan opener Khalid Latif was then tackled to the ground by a spectator in the 47th over as Australia won to take the series 50.

yes, what a dill. Afridi's action reminds me of the Atherton ball tampering situation shown in the related videos above. Both were captains on the day and brought shame to their teams.
