Following a humiliating defeat against USA in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener, Pakistan cricket team has more misery in store.

The Green Army's star pacer  Haris Rauf has been accused of tampering with the ball during the match on Thursday. 

As per reports, former South Africa pacer Rusty Theron, who is a member of the USA senior national cricket team at present, took to social media, tagging the International Cricket Council (ICC), making a serious accusation against Pakistan veteran speedster Rauf.

Theron claimed that Rauf ran his nails through the new ball, hoping to get it to reverse and bamboozle the American batters.

"@ICC are we just going to pretend Pakistan aren't scratching the hell out of this freshly changed ball? Reversing the ball that's just been changed 2 overs ago? You can literally see Harris Rauf running his thumbnail over the ball at the top of his mark. @usacricket #PakvsUSA," Theron wrote on X (earlier known as Twitter).
