India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Friday summoned by match referee Andy Pycroft for a hearing for shoving Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman during the first One-Day cricket International in Mirpur.

Pycroft has also summoned Mustafizur to listen to his side of the story and the outcome of the hearing will be known by this evening. The incident happened in the 25th over of the Indian innings when Dhoni found the pacer standing in his way while taking a run and he forcefully pushed Mustafizur to complete the single.

The bowler was hurt and had to temporarily retire without completing his spell.

“Skipper Dhoni along with administrative manager Biswarup Dey were present during the hearing. Now Mustafizur along with members of team management have gone into present their case. The Indian team management is hoping for Level I charge to be pressed against Dhoni so that it ends with a fine only. A Level 2 offence may lead to ban,” a source close to development told PTI.

Dhoni has recently been reprimanded in IPL for criticising umpire’s decision. His own form with the bat has also been patchy of late.
