Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) match tensions seem to be vanishing between the two cricketers but here comes Wahab Riaz’s tweet on Twitter admitting that it was a funny activity which should not be intimated.
Passion to win and aggression at times makes you do funny things. For all young ones who watched please don't repeat nor get influenced pls.

It came next day after fight between Quetta Gladiators’ Ahmad Shehzad and Peshawar Zalmi’s Wahab Riaz. “Wahab Riaz and Ahmad Shehzad have been fined 40% and 30% of their match fees respectively by the match referee for the altercation,” an official statement from PSL read.
Match-fee was fined on Monday by Sri Lankan match-referee Roshan Mahanama. The clash came in at 5th over of the match when Wahab face huge six by Shehzad and on very next ball he bowled him. Following which both express few harsh words to each other. Before they came into physical contact other players got involved and make sure that no one got hurt.
Mahanama took notice of the incident and called both players for hearing at the end.
“The fight shouldn’t have happened in first place because it doesn’t look good but it has happened so we can’t do anything about it now,” skipper Shahid Afridi said.
