The Bangladesh Cricket Board is reportedly planning to take up the poor and controversial umpiring during their 5-run loss (by DLS method) to India in Adelaide in their Super 12s Group 2 match in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022, to the proper forum.

In the aftermath of the rain-interrupted match, BAN keeper Nurul Hasan caused a huge controversy by accusing Virat Kohli of ‘fake fielding’, while captain Shakib Asaid that he was unable to convince the umpires to wait a bit longer to restart the game after the rain interval as the outfield was wet.

As per a report in Cricbuzz, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has reportedly decided to raise the ‘controversial umpiring’ matter in a ‘proper forum’. BCB’s cricket operation chairman, Jalal Yunus, said that Shakib also took up the ‘fake fielding’ matter with the umpires but the concern was played down.

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,” Jalal said, as per the report.
