IND VS BAN T20 World Cup: Bad Umpiring Causes After Match Controversy

It was yet another thrilling contest between Bangladesh and India on Wednesday. Both the teams were playing for 2 points and to keep their contention in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. It was a last ball thriller that Bangladesh lost by 5 runs.

Following the same, there is a rise of controversy. Bangladesh’s wicket-keeper batsman, Nurul Hasan, said on Wednesday that Virat Kohli engaged in some “false fielding” during their tight men’s T20 World Cup match in Adelaide, which resulted in a five-run loss.

Why Nurul Hasan is Accusing Virat Kohli?

The unreported incident occurred in Bangladesh’s sixth over of the chase when Kohli pretended to be relaying an Arshdeep Singh throw from the deep. The two hitters, Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto, did not see it, nor did the umpires Marais Erasmus and Chris Brown.

The “deliberate distraction, deceit, or obstruction of [the] batter” is forbidden under Law 41.5, which deals with unfair play. If an occurrence is found to be a violation, the umpire may rule that specific delivery to be a dead ball. provide the batting side five runs.

According to Nurul, if Bangladesh had won that decision, the outcome may have been different. India beat the odds by five runs [DLS method], exactly the amount of the run penalty for false fielding.

“Certainly the field was wet and it made impact and everyone saw that. Eventually what I felt is that when we were talking there was a fake throw. It could have been a five-run penalty and that could have gone our way but unfortunately. Even that didn’t come,” Nurul told reporters.

Bad Umpiring in IND VS BAN?

Various umpiring choices in the game between IND and BAN were in scrutiny. When Hasan Mahmud top-edged an attempted pull during the 16th over of India’s batting. Kohli pointed out to the square-leg umpire that Mahmud had violated the one bouncer per over regulation.

After declaring it a no-ball, Erasmus came between Kohli and Shakib Al Hasan. The two athletes engaged in conversation for almost 90 seconds before exchanging hugs and parting ways.

Bangladesh was on 66 for no loss and 17 runs ahead on DLS after rain stopped play. The umpires approached Shakib near the dugout to discuss play restarting.

Bangladesh later in the game seem to be angry by having to continue their pursuit so quickly after a heavy downpour made the ground damp. While the umpires had a discussion about the playing conditions in the game with the two captains, Shakib was seen stroking the grass with his hand.
