Only days after Shoaib Malik shook the sporting fraternity by posting pictures of his third wedding, he again stole the headlines for his on-field actions during the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL 2024). Shoaib, who is currently plying his trade for the Fortune Barishal in BPL 2024 has invoked speculation from fans and critics alike.

During a match against the Khulna Tigers on Monday evening (January 22), the Pakistan cricketer raised eyebrows after bowling three no-balls in a single over. For those unfamiliar, Shoaib is widely known for his batting ability, but he is also a handy off-spinner.

However, finger spinners bowling no-balls is a rare act and the fact that Shoaib managed to bowl three in the same over has left fans questioning of any possible foul play. 

Images of the incident has gone viral

Images and videos of the no-balls following the incident have gone viral all over social media, with the margin of the no-ball catching the eye of many.

Speaking about the match, Shoaib's team Fortune Barishal batted first after the Tigers won the toss and opted to field. They managed to score a total of 187 runs. Malik entered the batting crease during the 19th over, facing only six balls and scoring five runs while remaining unbeaten.

During the chase, Barishal skipper Tanim Iqball entrusted the Pakistan star with the ball during the powerplay in the fourth over of the match. Unfortunately, this move resulted in three no-balls and he conceded 18-runs off it. In the end, Fortune Barishal suffered an eight-wicket defeat as the Tigers easily achieved the target with two overs to spare.
