Bangladesh missed their revised goal of 151 runs in 16 overs following a brief downpour by five runs.
Virat Kohli is accused of “fake fielding” by Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan, costing his team five potentially crucial penalty runs in their T20 World Cup match. Bangladesh missed their revised goal of 151 runs in 16 overs following a brief downpour by five runs.
While Nurul kept Bangladesh in the game in the last over with a six and a four off Arshdeep Singh, his skipper Shakib Al Hasan appeared to criticise the on-field umpires after the game. The match authorities were unaware of the occurrence.
The damp outfield definitely had an effect when we restarted the game. Indirectly criticising umpires Chris Brown and Marais Erasmus of failing to see the incident, Nurul stated in Bengali at the mixed zone, “But there was also a false throw which might have scored us five runs but we didn’t even get that.
The occurrence to which Nurul was alluding took place in the seventh over. Arshdeep tossed the ball from a distance, and Kohli pretended to transmit it at the non-end striker’s while playing point, according to a video clip. When a fielder near to the track catches a ball from deep and throws it at the stumps, it is known as a relay throw.
Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto, the two hitters, didn’t even turn to look at Kohli, which is why Nurul’s statement raises doubts.
The fielding team is not allowed to “deliberately, distract, deceive, or hinder the batter,” according to ICC playing conditions rule 41.5, which deals with unfair play. The umpire has the authority to declare a dead ball and give out five penalty runs if he determines that someone has broken the regulation.
Nurul charged Kohli with false fielding, but he neglected to consider the “distraction and deceit” portion of the regulation. Shanto and Litton weren’t paying attention to Kohli, so they weren’t diverted or tricked. Nurul, on the other hand, may face consequences for his criticism of the match officials.
