BCB set to "raise the umpiring issue in the proper forum"

There were a couple of controversial decisions made during Bangladesh's T20 World Cup encounter against India

There were a couple of controversial decisions made during the India-Bangladesh T20 World Cup 2022 clash in Adelaide on Wednesday (November 2) and the Bangladesh Cricket Board have now said that they will raise those issues in the proper forum. 

After Bangladesh lost the rain-affected match by five runs, wicketkeeper-batter Nurul Hasan said that Virat Kohli made a fake throw, which according to the ICC Law, should have awarded the Bangladesh side with five penalty runs.

The incident happened in the seventh over. A video recording showed that Arshdeep threw the ball from the deep and Kohli -- at point -- feigned as if he were relaying it at the non-striker's end. A relay throw is where the fielder closer to the pitch catches the ball from deep and throws it at the stumps. However, the two batters -- Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto -- didn't even look at Kohli while running.

"We have spoken about it. You have seen it in the TV and everything happened in front of you. There was one regarding fake throw and we have notified the umpires about the fake throw but he said he did not notice it and that is the reason he did not take the review. Shakib discussed a lot about it with Erasmus and even spoke with him after game," BCB's cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

According to Law 41.5, "deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of [the] batter" is considered as unfair play and the umpire has the right to call that ball dead ball while awarding the opposition team with five runs. 

Chasing a target of 185, Bangladesh were 66/0 at the end of seven overs when it started raining in Adelaide. At that point, Bangladesh were 17 runs ahead of the DLS par score, before they were set a target of 151 in 16 overs when the game resumed. The ground was still wet and Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan was seen talking to one of the on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Indian captain Rohit Sharma.

"Secondly, Shakib had spoken about the wet field and he asked that he can take some more time and let the field get dried and start the game after the field is dried. But... the umpires' decision is final and that is the reason there was no place for an argument. There was only one decision whether you will play or not play. We have it in our head so that we can raise the issue in the proper forum."
