Sohail Tanvir faces flak for showing middle finger to Ben Cutting

The sixth edition of the Caribbean Premier League is up and running. In the second game of the tournament, St Kitts Nevis and Patriots faced Guyana Amazon Warriors. Chris Gayle played exceptionally well for Patriots but his innings was overshadowed by Shimron Hetmyer’s heroics, who led Warriors to a sensational win.

During the game, an unwanted incident took place as Pakistan pacer Sohail Tanvir showed middle finger to Ben Cutting after dismissing the latter. Patriots were going strong when Gayle and Cutting were at the crease. Tanvir was hit for a humongous six by Cutting in the 17th over. But the left-arm seamer made a perfect comeback, delivering a perfect Yorker to castle Cutting's defence.

He was lauded for bowling peach of a delivery but Tanvir's gesture towards Cutting has irked many. Tanvir was blasted by Chris Lynn for playing against the spirit of the game and is likely to be fined by the match referee for breaching the code of conduct.
