Karachi: Pakistan's former captain and coach Mushtaq Mohammad cannot understand the recent "hue and cry" over ball-tampering as he feels every team and bowler has indulged in it in some form or the other, including he himself.

"Everyone does it and every team has done it so I am surprised at the hue and cry being raised over the ball-tampering incident during the Test between Pakistan and South Africa," Mushtaq told Geo Super channel from London.

"Even spinners tend to try to pick the seam of the ball to get a better grip and I admit I did it a few times myself when I was playing and this is also tampering," he said.
