Melbourne, Feb 1 (IANS) Shahid Afridi’s ball tampering cost Pakistan the fifth and last one-day international at the WACA Ground, says Australian caption Ricky Porting.

Afridi Sunday was suspended for two twenty20 internationals after cameras picked up Afridi having a bite at the ball.

The 29 years old was the stand-in-skipper in the absence of injured skipper Mohammad Yousuf.
Australia needed 35 runs off 30 balls with just three wickets remaining when Afridi was nabbed and the ball replaced.

Poining said the incident would have unsettled Afridi and potentially cost Pakistan a chance of winning its first game on an otherwise dreadful tour.

“As soon as it happened, the umpires acted really well and changed the ball straight away,” Poining was quoted as saying in the Australian media.
