As per the reports, Hasnain action came to the spotlight during the first innings of the match against Sydney Sixers. Sixers’ skipper Moises Henriques seemed to have no answer of the bouncer executed by Hasnain, as the Aussie’s all-rounder failed to launch the ball for maximum.
The incident became more serious followed by the exchange of words between the two. As, Henriques taunted Hasnain and said: “Nice throw, mate”.
Under ICC rules bowlers are allowed to straighten their arms up to 15 degrees in their action. But, here from the word ‘straightening’, it is mandatory to make the ‘straightening of arms’ visible for the naked eyes.
It is pertinent to mention that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had immediately summoned Mohammad Hasnain among other players from Australia amid the preparations of Pakistan Super League (PSL), which sets to kick off on January 27.
