Ruckus over Shakib’s wicket
In this match, there was a ruckus on the wicket of Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib came to the crease in the 11th over after the dismissal of Soumya Sarkar. There was a strong appeal against him on the very first ball and after taking some time, the umpire declared him LBW. Shakib immediately pointed to Drs. He believed that the ball hit his leg after hitting his bat.
The sound was clearly visible in the snickometer as well. But here there is a loophole. The moment the ball passed through Shakib Al Hasan’s bat, his bat was close to the ground. Because of this, the third umpire assumed that the sound seen in the snickometer came from the bat hitting the ground. He was found in front of the wicket in replays and was also declared out by the third umpire.
argument with umpire
Shakib Al Hasan could not believe after being given out. He argued with the on-field umpire and gave his side. But nothing can happen after being given out. The umpires deliberately asked him to leave the field. After this Shakib was left with no option. He returned to the pavilion without opening an account.
Bangladesh has scored 127 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. Pakistan has a target of 128 runs to reach the semi-finals. Fast bowler Shaheen Afridi took 4 wickets while performing his career best.
