No action, but the referee explained

Obviously, Stoinis’s action was against the rules and regulations of the tournament, but the ECB has decided not to pursue a case of breach of discipline. However, match referee Dean Cosker has spoken to and explained Stoinis’s actions.
Question raised on action when out
All the ruckus happened on Sunday 14 August, when the match between Southern Brave and Oval Invincible was taking place in The Hundred. In this match, Stoinis, playing for Brave, was dismissed by Hasnain. The young Pakistani pacer troubled Stoinis with a fast short pitch ball, on which Stoinis could not play a pull shot properly and got out.
Then returning to the pavilion, Stoinis indicated the bowling action with his hands and indicated that Hasnain was bowling with an illegal action.

This attitude of Stoinis is being strongly criticized and the Pakistani cricket fraternity in particular has slammed Stoinis.
Hasnain had improved the action
Actually Hasnain’s bowling action has been in controversies in the past and this controversy also took place in Australia. Earlier this year, in Australia’s Big Bash League, Hasnain’s bowling action was called suspicious by the umpires, after which he was banned. During the same tournament, Moses Henriques of Australia also questioned Hasnain’s action and how he was taunted. After this Hasnain had improved the action after undergoing a lab biomechanics test at a university in Lahore, after which the ICC and Cricket Australia also allowed his new action to start bowling.
