New Delhi. The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 has become very unpredictable. The favorite cricket of the tournament is also struggling to make a mark. The tournament so far has seen some close games, some tough games, some upsets and many more. England had to face defeat against Ireland. Now a rare incident happened in the Super 12 round between South Africa and Bangladesh. In the first innings where the Proteas were batting, a mistake by the Bangladesh wicketkeeper resulted in five penalty runs for the opposition.
On the last ball of the 11th over, when Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan was about to bowl, wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan went to his left before bowling the ball. It is not allowed according to the rules of the game. When Shakib was coming to bowl, Nurul was seen going behind the stumps. On-field umpires Rod Tucker and Langton Russere had a lengthy discussion about the same.

The on-field umpire then reached the decision to award five extra runs to South Africa as a result of Nurul Hasan’s fault being found. The South African team was already making a big score, now they got a bonus of five more runs to add to it.
