XtraTime Web Desk: Pakistan’s veteran left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir is in controversy after he gave a double-finger send-off to Aussie batsman Ben Cutting. He clean bowled Cutting in a Caribbean Premier League (CPL) game and then he did this thing in front of the whole crowd. It was a match between Amazon Warriors and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

The incident took place in the 17th over of the first innings after Sohail Tanvir bowled Ben Cutting (15).

The incident created storm on social media as Tanvir was heavily criticized for his uncalled for actions. Australian opener Chris Lynn, who is playing for Trinbago Knight Riders in the league, criticized the gesture from Tanvir.

Another Australian pacer Gurinder Sandhu too criticized the on-field behaviour from the Pakistani bowler.

Although Tanvir’s Guyana Amazon Warriors won the match comfortably by six wickets but the send-off controversy became the unwanted highlight of the game.
