PCB Chairman responds in India to Hasan Ali move at Wagah border

*Kolkata:* Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi on Wednesday played down pacer Hasan Ali performance at the Attari-Wagah border during the traditional flag-lowering ceremony.

In a video uploaded on social media, the 24-year-old pacer could be seen mocking <link>the Border Security Force (BSF) of India as he emulated the Ranger, patted his thigh and flexed his muscles at the Indian soldiers and spectators on the other side before doing his signature wicket-taking celebration step.

"Cricket teams always go to the Wagah border. Fast bowlers do what they do. I do not attribute any importance to it," Sethi said.

"I do not want to discuss, otherwise you will bring politics into it," the PCB chief said on the sidelines of the ICC's quarterly meeting.

The PCB had shared pictures of Ali and his teammates visiting the border to see the ceremonial lowering of the flag.
