Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis on Sunday seemingly accused Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain of chucking his bowling action during the match between Southern Brave and Oval Invincibles of the ongoing The Hundred 2022.

Stoinis top-scored with 37 in 27 balls in South Brave’s seven-wicket loss to Oval Invincibles at The Oval in London.

Stoinis top-edged Hasnain’s short delivery that flew toward eventual centurion Will Jacks at mid-off. While moving back to the pavilion, Stoinis imitated Hasnain’s action, gesturing it to be chucking.

Hasnain was found guilty of having an illegal bowling action and was immediately suspended from bowling earlier this year. It happened during a Big Bash League match between Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers on January 2 when umpire Gerard About reported his action.

The 22-year-old underwent biomechanics tests in late January, with the findings from the Lahore University of Management of Sciences confirmed that his elbow was under the ICC’s permissible 15-degree limit extension. In June, Hasnaian was cleared to bowl in international cricket following an assessment at the ICC accredited centre in Lahore.

Was this the first time Mohammad Hasnain was accused of chucking?

Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques had also accused the Pakistan pacer related to his bowling bouncer. The Australian all-rounder commented ‘Nice throw mate’ when Hasnai unleashed a beaming bouncer toward him.

“Right from the first game he played and through to the tournament, it seemed that there was a few question marks there,” Henriques told reporters at the time.

“I didn’t have the protractor out. I guess from my point of view, we knew already it had been reported. I feel like the umpires are a little bit hamstrung in terms of what they can actually do on the cricket field, because they’re so worried about backlash and public opinion. 

“I could definitely argue that what he was doing was not in the spirit of the game,” Henriques added. 

Hasnain hasn’t played for Pakistan after his bowling suspension was revoked with his last appearance being made in December 2021 against the West Indies.
