BAN vs PAK: Hasan Ali reprimanded for breaching ICC's code of conduct, Bangladesh fined for slow over-rate


The right-handed pacer Hasan Ali has once again grabbed the headlines after the completion of the 2nd T20I against Bangladesh.

Before that, during the semi-final against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2021, fans started to abuse him after he drops an easy one of Matthew Wade who went on to finish the match by smashing three consecutive sixes off Shaheen Afridi.

As of now, the 27-year-old has once again got slammed by the fans after breaching the rule of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The incident took place in the 2nd T20I match against Bangladesh where he did an unusual thing that has caught on camera.

During the 17th over of the match, Hasan Ali took the wicket of the opposition wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan and unfairly signalled him to go back to the dressing room.

However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) took charge immediately and announced that the 27-year-old has violated Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

In addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Hasan, for whom it was the first offence in a 24-month period," the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement.
