The match between India and Bangladesh was very exciting. During this match, once again there was a controversy over the no ball. At the request of Virat Kohli, the referees gave the ball a pitch and after that Shakib Al Hasan came in the middle and started talking to Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli beat well in this match and was India’s hero of victory. In his innings he hit eight fours and one six. His partnership with KL Rahul played an important role in bringing the team’s score to 184. However, during this time, something happened that surprised everyone a bit. The video of this whole incident has also been shared by the ICC.
In fact, Hasan Mahmood threw a short ball on the last ball of the 16th over. As soon as the kick was played, Kohli pointed square-legged at the referee and asked for the height of the pitch. But then Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan came running and came to Kohli and talked to the referee. After that, he was also seen saying something as he put his hand on Kohli’s shoulder. During the conversation, both players were seen smiling, after which both returned to their respective places.
I was just checking if it was a no ball or not – Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib Al Hasan told in the post-match press conference what was his conversation with Virat Kohli at that time. He said, “I haven’t talked much. All I was checking was whether it was a second rebound or not and whether the batting team should have gotten a free kick. That’s all I was checking to see if the ball was a draw ball or not.
Let us tell you that Bangladesh had to face a five-point defeat in this match and with that, their hopes of reaching the semi-finals also suffered a blow.
