Pakistan cricketers and controversies are like long-lost brothers, they both go hand-in-hand in real life. In a recent Caribbean Premier League match Sohail Tanvir of Pakistan got into the limelight for not a very good reason. In the second match of CPL 2018 between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots Tanvir bowled Australian allrounder Ben Cutting and showed him two middle-fingers. Tanvir's reaction was totally outrageous and was slammed by the cricket fans on the social media.
It was the 16th over of the match when GAW’s left arm pacer bowl a beautiful yorker that dismantled Cutting stumps. Before that ball Cutting smashed Tanvir for a six on the very previous delivery.
GAW won the match by 6 wickets with 21 balls remaining. After openers' flop show Shimron Heytmer scored 79 runs from 45 deliveries. On the other hand, in the first innings, Chris Gayle carried SNP on his back. He scored 86 runs from 65 deliveries but got no support from the other end.
ICC is continuously introducing rules to protect the rich legacy of the game. They have introduced many strict laws against cheating and misconduct on the field and Tanvir might be getting the punishment for his gesture.
Players usually show some extra aggression on the field and in that they do some outrageous things like Tanvir had done but they need to understand the integrity of the game.
