Headingley, the venue for Pakistan v Afghanistan.

Pakistan's Cricket World Cup meeting with Afghanistan was marred as supporters clashed at Headingley on Saturday.

Social media footage appeared to show scuffles breaking out between the two sets of fans outside the ground behind the Carnegie Pavilion.

Omnisport understands a number of fans arrived at Headingley without tickets and were attempting to enter the venue by other means.

Victory for Pakistan would elevate them above tournament hosts England and into the semi-final places, ahead of their last group game against Bangladesh at Lord's on Friday.
