The video of the incident is now going viral on social media. The video shows Yusuf arguing with Johnson, after which the pacesetter pushed him. Immediately the umpire intervened and took Johnson to the other side.
Sources told IANS that the organizers are not at all happy with what has happened and plan to ban Johnson from competing under ICC laws.

Meanwhile, former New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor and West Indian star Ashley Nurse whipped up a half-century conflagration to help India Capitals enter the final after beating Bhilwara Kings by four wickets.
Taylor hit a rapid fire 84 out of 39, including nine fours and five huge sixes, while Nurse hit an undefeated 60. His brilliant 28-ball knock was combined with five fours and four sixes as India Capitals comfortably chased the top target of the season into the end with three balls left.
Despite Sunday’s loss, Bhilwara Kings, led by Irfan Pathan, will have another chance to secure their place in the final when they face the third-seeded Gujarat Giants in the eliminator match at the same venue on Monday.
The final will be played on Wednesday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
