Pakistan left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman bowled above the waist three no-balls on the trot and got banned from bowling in the eighth match of the Asia Cup 2014 against Bangladesh. Rehman came into bowl in the 11th over and his first three deliveries were no-balls. So, he was relieved of his bowling duties without bowling one legal delivery.

Rehman will finish the match with figures of 0-0-8-0. This is a new world record across formats.

Earlier, Umar Gul bowled a short delivery and Anamul Haque hooked it for a six over the fine-leg fielder. That got the crowd going after a cautious start. Rehman came in and his first delivery was way wide on the off side and at head height to Imrul Kayes. It was signaled as a no-ball.

The next delivery was a above the waist delivery and Kayes pulled it away on the leg side. The fielder caught the ball at the deep mid-wicket boundary, but that too was signaled as a no-ball. But oddly, he was not removed from the attack.

But the next delivery was also above the waist and Anamul pulled it away for a four towards deep mid-wicket. He was then banned from bowling in the match. Rehman bowled three no-balls in-a-row above the waist height and was barred from bowling without registering a legal delivery.

Bangladesh are at 71 for no loss after 15 overs after electing to bat first. Anamul is batting on 41 and Kayes is on 21.

The hosts made five changes to their side that lost to Afghanistan. Shakib Al Hasan, Kayes, Mahmudullah, Shafiul Islam and Al-Amin Hossain have been included in the starting XI.

Pakistan also made two changes from the side that beat India. Opener Sharjeel Khan sat out with an injury and was replaced by Fawad Alam. Abdur Rehman comes in for Junai Khan.
