The man, a London resident, later explained to an ICC commentator that he was disappointed by a dropped catch in the field which prompted the reaction.
"I could see it land in his hands and then he dropped it. It was really disappointing to see it happen just in front of me and I couldn’t say anything," he said.
He was full of praise for Mohammad Amir, who took five wickets in a career-best performance.
