Pakistanis point the finger at Trott

12:08 pm on 22 September 2010

Pakistan's one-day cricket captain Shahid Afridi says his team could have filed a police complaint against the England batsman Jonathan Trott over an altercation on Tuesday with the Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz.

Newspaper reports said Trott and Riaz had an altercation minutes before the fourth one-dayer at Lord's, with Trott grabbing Riaz by the throat after they'd exchanged heated words in the practice net area.

Reports said the incident started when Trott accidentally struck Riaz with his pads as he took them off, and he'd called the Pakistani a match fixer.

Pakistan levelled their five-match one day series with England in the match - the decider's in Southampton early Thursday.
