SA vs PAK: Quinton De Kock escapes fake fielding charge after Fakhar Zaman run out
Fakhar admitted after the match that he had been taken by surprise but did not attempt to deflect blame for the dismissal on to cheating by the South African wicketkeeper.
"I was looking at Haris Rauf because I thought the run-out would be at his end. It was my own fault," he said at the post-match press conference.
Officials are understood to have deemed that de Kock's actions were not a trick and that he was indicating for the throw to go to the bowler's end. South African fielder Tabraiz Shamsi tweeted on Monday that de Kock was calling for a fielder to back up the throw at the non-striker's end.
"QDK was NOT speaking 2 or pointing at the batsman, he was asking a fielder to back up at the non striker's end," tweeted Shamsi. "Not Quinnys fault the batman turned around 2 sees instead of completing the run safely which he should have done."
