Imrul, while batting in the 2015 season of BPL, was deliberately shoved by T. Dilshan, thus preventing him from running down the crease. The batsman at the other end was not aware of this fact and ran for a run, resulting in them getting stuck on the same end. The matter was taken to the third umpire, who upon review, declared the batsman NOT OUT and said 5 runs be awarded to the batting team as a penalty. You can check out the video in fact #6.
