Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali in hot water over Nurul Hasan send-off
Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali has been reprimanded by the ICC for his send-off of Nurul Hasan during the first T20I against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Thursday.
The incident occurred in the 17th over of Bangladesh’s innings, when Hasan gave an expletive-laden sendoff to batter Nurul Hasan after dismissing him caught behind the wicket.
Hasan was found to have breached Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.”

The Pakistan quick is known to enjoy a wicket but usually keeps his celebrations out of a batsman’s face.
In addition to the official reprimand, one demerit point has been added to Hasan’s disciplinary record.
The incident was the first offence in a 24-month period for the fast bowler.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh team have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate in the match as they were ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.
In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.
Hasan and Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah copped to the offences.
They accepted the sanctions proposed by Match refereee Neeyamur Rashid which were ratified by the ICC Cricket Operations department as per the COVID-19 interim playing regulations.
