The International Cricket Council (ICC) referee Brian Hastings of New Zealand would see Pakistan opener Shadab Kabir Thursday for showing dissent on the first day of the second Test.

"I have asked him (Shadab) to see me and that's nothing serious," Hastings said Wednesday.

Shadab stood his ground after being given out caught behind by Bangladeshi umpire Mahboobur Rahman on the first day of the Test Wednesday. "He is a young player and he must learn to accept decisions," Hastings said without revealing further details.

Shadab made four in Pakistan's 99-1 in reply to Bangladesh's 148. TV replays showed the ball did elude Kabir's bat, but the Bangladeshi umpire raised his finger to show him the way.

Shadab, dumped after playing three Tests in 1996, is on a comeback trail after scoring over 700 runs in Pakistan's domestic tournament. The decision may cost Shadab dearly as he is not likely to get another innings in the Test.

Another opener Naved Latif is also waiting on the sidelines and is tipped to partner Taufiq Umer in the one-day series that follows this Test.
