The ongoing Bangladesh Premier League has been grabbing headlines due to some questionable decisions by umpires. After Shakin Al Hasan was spotted engaging in a heated argument with the on-field umpire, speedster Haris Rauf has done something similar during Rangpur Riders versus Sylhet Strikers match on January 27, at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.

The incident took place during the 20th over when Strikers were struggling at 88/9 while Robiul Haque was bowling the last over. Haque started the over with back-to-back bouncers as the second delivery was termed a no-ball by the on-field umpire.

The officials took their time to give the no-ball decision and that irked the Riders' players. As skipper Nurul Hasan was quick to have a word with the on-field umpires Gazi Sohel and Prageeth Rambukwella and was joined by Pakistani speedster Haris Rauf. Both the cricketers visibly looked upset with the decision and were spotted having a long distance with the umpires, but the latter stayed to their decision of no-ball and the game resumed.

Speaking of the game, Rangpur Riders easily chased down the target of 93 runs with six wickets and 26 balls remaining. With that fourth win, the Riders are placed in the fourth position after playing the first seven games. Rauf missed the opening three matches due to his involvement in Pakistan's ODI series against New Zealand. 

The 29-year-old pacer took Thisara Perera's wicket while conceding just 19 runs against Strikers in the last game. He has taken six wickets in four innings at an impressive economy rate of 6.25 in BPL 2023.  For Rangpur Riders, Rony Talukdar scored an impressive 41 runs in 38 deliveries. Rangpur Riders will play their next game against Dhaka Dominators on January 30 (Monday) while Sylhet Strikers will play Khulna Tigers on Tuesday.
