Abdur Rehman, the Pakistan left-arm spinner, was barred from bowling in the Asia Cup match against Bangladesh before he had delivered a legal ball.

Rehman was brought on in the 11th over and delivered three consecutive full tosses above the waist, forcing umpire Johan Cloete to take him off.

Rehman finished with figures of 0-0-8-0.

According to the ICC's playing conditions for ODIs, a bowler will be banned from the attack if he delivers more than one full toss above the waist.
