Bangladesh v Pakistan 2021

Watch: Mushfiqur Rahim shoulders arms to Hasan Ali’s vicious inswinger that sends off-stump cartwheeling

Watch: Pakistan saw the back of the dangerous Mushfiqur Rahim courtesy of a stunning, angling delivery from Hasan Ali that cannoned into the stumps of the batter, who shouldered his arms during the Chattogram Test.

Pakistan were right on top in the first Test against Bangladesh going into the fourth day, and Hasan Ali ensured that things stayed that way. In the very first over of the day, Hasan wasn’t off to the best of the starts. His first two balls were wayward, and Mushfiqur made the most of it.

But the bowler got his act in order for the third delivery. The ball pitched outside off, and Mushfiqur anticipated that it would go past him. He decided to leave the delivery, but the ball jagged back in considerably and crashed right into the batter’s off-stump. The stump cartwheeled off, and the Bangladesh veteran had to walk back, even as the Pakistan fielders celebrated a big wicket.
