Pakistan’s fast bowler Hasan Ali, Asghar Afghans of Afghanistan and Rashid Khan have got negative points due to wrong behavior in the Asia Cup-2011 match and 15 percent of the match fee has also been imposed. Pakistan and Afghanistan teams were face-to-face on Friday, where Pakistan had won in an interesting encounter.
