In a shocking incident, Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali was caught engaging in a physical altercation with the crowd during a local cricket match. In a viral video, Hasan can be seen being heckled by the crowd and later losing his cool and getting involved in a physical squabble.
The crowd can be heard shouting and teasing Hasan for not being part of the Pakistan squad. They were also taunting him for his famous dropped during the 2021 T20 World Cup semi-final clash against Australia. The player seemed to have finally lost his patience and pounced on the crowd.
According to local Pakistan media, Hasan was playing a match on Sunday in Arif Wala, a city in the Pakpattan District of the country’s Punjab province.

Notably, Hasan was dropped from the Pakistan T20 team ahead of the 2022 T20 World Cup. He was also not picked in the Test squad for the ongoing home series against England, having taken just five wickets in his last four Tests against Australia and Sri Lanka. The right-arm pacer last played for Pakistan in the Asia Cup Super Four match against Sri Lanka, where the Islanders won the match by five wickets, and Hasan went wicketless, conceding 25 runs in 3 overs.
So far, Hasan has claimed 77 wickets in 21 Tests, along with 91 and 60 wickets in ODIs and T20Is, respectively. He was an integral part of the Men in Green that won the 2017 Champions Trophy, but his career has been ruined by injuries and inconsistency since then.
