Batsman Asif Ali is facing disciplinary action after he swatted his bat within centimeters of bowler Keemo Paul’s face during the CPL match between Jamaica Tallawahs and Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday.
Asif Ali reacted strongly as he was given a send-off by Paul. He objected as he was going towards the dressing room after his 3-run knock. The tension was noticed as Paul dismissed Asif to reduce the Tallawahs to 49 for 3.
Defenders needed quick wickets to win before batsmen chase 108 runs.
Asif Ali’s shot was caught by Warriors captain Chris Green at long-on. Paul appeared to mock him verbally as he was walking back. However, the right-handed batsman Asif Ali seemed bothered and he responded in a bizarre manner. He apparently gave a backhand swat of his bat in the bowler’s direction, narrowly missing his face.
