A heated exchange between Hasan Ali and Luke Jongwe that was really funny to watch for the fans
There was a fiery incident on the third day of the Test match between the two countries. Hasan got himself involved in a fiery encounter between himself and Zimbabwe batsman Luke Jongwe. The incident sparked off in the third ball of the 49th over of Zimbabwe’s second innings. Hasan, having bowled his first two deliveries, attempted to have a go against Luke. Luke did not shy back, he smashed Hasan for a boundary through the covers.
However, that did not deter Hasan from stepping back. Instead, he charged towards Luke and directed a few more verbal volleys towards him. The stump mic caught Luke shouting ‘What”. Ultimately, the on-field umpires had to intervene to cool the heated exchange. Such was the intensity of the altercation that wicketkeeper Mohammed Rizwan had to go towards Hasan Ali and drag him away from the incident.
Although the exchange was heated, it seemed to be a bit casual as well. We could see both the players exchanging smiles shortly after that incident. However, the following incident caught the attention of all the viewers.
Hasan was ready to load after completing his long run-up in the fifth delivery of the over. At the end moment, Luke pulled away. It seemed like he was still not ready to face the ball. A frustrated Hasan had to walk back to his bowling mark and start all over again. However, he again took a dig at Luke by sticking his tongue towards him. This is what you call absolute hilarious banter and getting under the skin of the batsman. The fast bowlers are the real Picasso of that art.
