Zimbabwe vs Pakistan: Hasan Ali’s ‘bomb-explosion’ celebration goes haywire
The teammates rushed to their premier pacer to enquire about his well-being.

Hasan Ali has taken rapid strides in international cricket after making his debut back in 2016. He doesn’t have a whole lot of experience in either of the three formats, yet he is currently one of the most reliable bowlers in the Pakistani bowling lineup. To spice up his stupendous prowess with the leather, he also has a unique celebration antic after picking a wicket, popularly known as ‘bomb-explosion’.
He crunches down with crossed arms and then flings his arms as he moves upwards. Pakistan is currently playing a five-match ODI series against Zimbabwe and are leading the series courtesy of a thumping victory in the opening match by 201 runs. Hasan finished with a spell of 4-2-6-1, which also included the wicket of right-handed opening batsman Chamu Chibhabha.
Hasan’s celebration gone wrong
The Mandi Bahauddin-born pacer chipped in with numbers of 8.2-1-32-3 in the second match and helped his team restrict the home team to 194 in 49.2 overs. He picked up Tarisai Musakanda to notch his maiden wicket. However, during his second wicket of Ryan Murray, a rather uncanny incident sparked. A vicious in-dipper by Hasan cannoned into the timber.
Murray was in no position to play the extra-cover drive and the leather snuck through his bat and pad. Zimbabwe lost their fifth wicket with 13 overs still remaining. However, while performing his bomb-celebration, he seemed to have pulled a muscle of the shoulder. After the antic, he sensed a tweak on his shoulder and sat on the turf, anguishing in pain.
The teammates rushed to their premier pacer to enquire about his well-being. Sarfraz Ahmed and his men still have three more matches to play and they won’t want the 24-year-old pacer to suffer an injury. Pakistan have a hectic schedule ahead of them and also the World Cup next year in England and Wales, and Hasan’s role is expected to be pivotal.
