Oscar sparks mass brawl in Chinese league

In this Sunday, June 18, 2017 photo, Shanghai SIPG players, red jersey, and Guangzhou R&F players, blue jersey, tussle after Shanghai's Oscar was tackled on the ground, during their Chinese Super League match in Guangzhou in south China's Guangdong province.

After the former Chelsea midfielder appeared to fire the ball deliberately twice at Guangzhou players, he was rushed by an opponent, fell to the ground and a melee broke out.

After setting up compatriot Hulk for an equaliser midway through the first half, Oscar appeared to lose his composure just minutes later - firing the ball not once, but twice into an opponent as the half was about to draw to a close.

Rumman, denied the wicket of Alex Hales on an lbw review, got his man for 13 when the opener sliced a drive to extra-cover. Junaid Khan and Hasan Ali had been the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan and each had three wickets to their name.

Players from both sides became involved in an episode of pushing and shoving which resulted in the sending off of one player from each side, but the Brazilian midfielder escaped with any punishment.

That prompted a brawl involving all 22 players, both sets of substitutes and several members of staff on the pitch. Two players, Guangzhou's Li Tixiang and Shanghai's Fu Huan, were sent off the field, though Oscar wasn't punished.

Oscar was unhurt and the fiery encounter finished 1-1 to leave SIPG four points behind reigning champions Guangzhou Evergrande. "I am a very dedicated player and respect sportsmanship". As punches were thrown, some SIPG players - including fellow Brazilian teammate Hulk, ran over to protect Oscar.
