SCORECARD

The Central Punjab captain blasted to his maiden triple-digit score in first-class cricket as he scored 106 not out from just 61 balls. Hasan’s stay at the crease was studded with 10 fours and seven sixes.

He arrived at the crease in the first over after Lunch with Central Punjab 154 runs away from the 356-run target with four wickets in hand and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa dominating the proceedings.

The 26-year-old turned the tide quickly into his team’s favour as he spanked Sajid Khan, the highest wicket-taker of the season with 67 scalps at 25.09 runs per dismissal, for two sixes and three fours in the 102nd over, before smashing pacer Irfanullah Shah for a six and a four in the next over.

He crossed the 50-run mark with a massive six off Arshad Iqbal on his 27th ball and brought up his century on 58th delivery.

Hasan won the Best Player of the Tournament award for his all-round contribution in Central Punjab’s epic resurgence, which saw them win four of their last five group-matches and play the final of the competition after being at the bottom of the six-team points table at the half-way stage. He took 43 wickets – the most for a pacer – in nine matches at 20.07 and scored 273 runs, which also included two half-centuries, at 24.82.

Australia vs India 3rd Test Preview: Dogfight for ascendency at Sydney amid bubbling tension

The controversy surrounding the breach of the biosecure bubble by five Indian players and India's resistance to undergo hard quarantine at Brisbane have added spice to the test series.

LIVE - Australia vs India 3rd Test 

Bubble breach and quarantine controversy

Controversy erupted after a post on Twitter showed Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw and Navdeep Saini in a restaurant in Melbourne. With the players allowed to dine in open spaces but not inside the four walls of a restaurant, it seemed to be a case of a breach of the biosecure bubble protocol by the five Indian players.

As a result, the five of them were kept in precautionary isolation. There was also news of the players having to travel separately to Sydney. After all the members of the Indian and Australian teams and the support staff returned negative Covid-19 tests, the teams traveled together to Sydney.

In the midst of all that, there have been various comments from the Australian camp, including former wicket-keeper Brad Haddin, Matthew Wade and Nathan Lyon in opposition to India's resistance to play the fourth and the last test match of the series at Brisbane. With teams travelling to Brisbane from Sydney, they will have to undergo hard quarantine and will only be allowed out of their hotel rooms, or for that matter their floor, for no purpose other than training or the match.
