In a rare cricketing incident, Pakistani batter Sohaib Maqsood faced the unusual dismissal of being timed out during the National T20 Cup match between Multan Region and Azad Jammu & Kashmir on Saturday.

According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, Maqsood has become the second player to be timed out in the history of the world cricket.

This occurrence closely follows Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews, who recently became the first batter in international cricket to be timed out against Bangladesh.

Representing Multan Region against Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Maqsood faced time pressure when reaching the crease, leading to the umpires declaring a timed-out verdict.

The ongoing National T20 Cup, hosted in Karachi, features 18 teams divided into four groups.

The International Cricket Council's (ICC) recent focus on speeding up the game and introducing innovative measures has gained attention.

The trial use of a stop clock in white-ball internationals between overs is one such initiative aimed at maintaining the game's dynamism and engagement.

 Sohaib Maqsood's timed-out dismissal adds a unique chapter to the ongoing cricketing narrative.

 Earlier, the controversial Mathews dismissal had sparked debates within the cricket community, with opinions divided on whether it upheld the spirit of the game or not.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan's decision to maintain the appeal, despite multiple queries by umpire Marais Erasmus, received both praise and criticism.
