Good News for David Warner and Mohammad Hasnain

In the recent development of cricket, Pakistani pacer Mohammad Hasnain and Australia’s batter David Warner have got a piece of good news for them. According to reliable reports, Warner’s captaincy ban is likely to be lifted in a shorter course whereas, Hasnain, on being eligible to bowl after clearing the bowling style Test, has got another opportunity to showcase his talent.

Hasnain, who was playing for Sydney Thunder during Australia’s Big Bash League 2022, was noticed by the umpire in case of illegal bowling during the match against Adelaide Strikers. As per the ICC rules, a bowler’s action is considered illegal if his elbow exceeds 15 degrees while bowling. He was tested by ICC Accredited Academy in Lahore and the reports were sent to the concerned authority.

He was given green signals by CA’s independent experts to bowl in all forms of cricket once again on June 9th and was instantly contacted by Oval Invincibles for the upcoming edition of The Hundred. Recently, Worcestershire County Club has signed him for the remainder of the County Championship 2022. The fans are delighted to see Hasnain getting back-to-back opportunities after clearing the bowling action.

As far as Warner is concerned, CA imposed a lifetime ban on him for leadership roles after he was found guilty in the ball-tampering scandal during the 2018 test series versus South Africa. In the third Test, Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft and Warner were seen involved in the scandal. As a result, Warner and Smith were suspended for two years whereas Bancroft was banned for nine months.

Discussing the captaincy roles, the team back then was led by Smith, who was banned as a captain for two years, whereas Warner the vice-captain, being the chief person in the scandal, was banned forever from leading. However, his keen interest and potential now to lead the BBL teams is reportedly convincing CA to lift the captaincy ban from him.
