The incident occurred during the 41st over of the innings when Mushfiqur was batting on 35, defended a delivery from pacer Kyle Jamieson and then as the ball was going wide of the wickets he swatted it with his right hand even though it was not heading towards the wickets.

“A cricketer who has played over 80 Tests, should know he can’t do that,” Tamim stated in the commentary box.
