Police were called after members of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Afghanistan/">Afghanistan</a> squad were involved in an altercation at a Manchester restaurant on Monday. <p></p> <p></p>The incident took place the night before Afghanistan's <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/2019-ICC-Cricket-World-Cup-2">World Cup</a> match against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/England/">England</a> at Manchester's Old Trafford, with the minnows going down to a colossal 150-run defeat -- their fifth loss in as many matches at the tournament. <p></p> <p></p>According to the BBC, the unnamed squad members took exception to being filmed by a member of the public, and confronted him. <p></p> <p></p>But Afghanistan captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/gulbadin-naib/news/">Gulbadin Naib</a>, speaking to reporters after the match, played down the incident by saying he had no fresh information to offer on the alleged altercation. <p></p> <p></p>"No, I haven't, so you can ask my security officer. I didn't know anything about him, about them," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"It's not a big issue for the team, for me." <p></p> <p></p>Earlier Tuesday, a statement issued by Greater Manchester Police confirmed that officers attended Akbar's restaurant shortly after 11:15 pm local time (2215 GMT) on Monday. <p></p> <p></p>"Shortly after 11.15 pm on Monday 17 June 2019, police were called to reports of an altercation at a premises on Liverpool Road in Manchester," the statement said. <p></p> <p></p>"Officers attended the scene. No one was injured and no arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing." <p></p> <p></p>On the field, hosts England, aided by some sloppy Afghanistan fielding, piled up their highest World Cup score of 397-6, with captain Eoin Morgan hitting a one-day international record 17 sixes in his 148.
