On Sunday night during Southern Brave’s fixture against Oval Invincibles, Marcus Stoinis questioned the legality of Mohammad Hasnain's bowling action after being dismissed. Hasnain was suspended from bowling after being called by umpires during the BBL last year but was cleared to return in June.
Marcus Stoinis batted brilliantly for Southern Brave on Sunday against Oval Invincibles during the ongoing Hundred competition until he was dismissed by Mohammad Hasnain short ball after scoring 37 off 27 balls. But then, Stoinis, while walking back to the dugout, mimicked a throwing motion which looked to be suggesting that he was taking a jibe at Hasnain’s bowling action. Not to forget, Hasnain was suspended from bowling after being called by umpires during the last Big Bash League (BBL) season.
However, in a recent development reported by ESPNCricinfo, Stoinis will not be formally sanctioned after appearing to question Hasnain's bowling action. The Australian was spoken to by match referee Dean Cosker that he will not be formally charged with an ECB's disciplinary code breach.
However, in social media, Stoinis has been heavily criticized for doing that gesture.
Here's how the internet reacted after Stoinis' action for Hasnain:

But he will not face any.
