T20 World Cup: Bangladesh’s victory ‘missed’, team loses due to ICC rules! Questions raised on DRS, fans made big demands

Posted on

New Delhi. In the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh lost to South Africa by 4 runs. ICC rules also played a big role in his defeat. This rule cost Bangladesh 4 runs and lost by the same margin. ICC rules are being criticized only after this defeat of Bangladesh. Not that this rule has not been questioned before. But now when a rule in the World Cup itself has become the reason for the victory or defeat of any team, there is a demand to change it.

In the T20 World Cup match, South Africa gave Bangladesh a target of 114 runs. In reply, Bangladesh scored 88 runs for 4 wickets in 16.1 overs. At that time he needed 26 runs from 23 balls to win. On the second ball of the 17th over, the umpire gave Mahmudullah lbw. The Bangladeshi batsman challenged the decision under DRS. Mahmudullah’s challenge appeared to be correct and the third umpire overturned the on-field umpire’s decision. Thus Mahmudullad remained unstoppable.

Turning Point: The whole universe was busy conquering Bangladesh… But Keshav didn’t accept this; Played in 2 balls

But this is only one side of the coin. Another aspect is that it went outside the fine leg boundary after hitting Mahmudullah’s pad. There was no question of scoring a run on this as Mahmudullah was given out by the on-field umpire. But even when Mahmudullah was declared unbeaten under DRS, Bangladesh did not get a four. The reason is hidden in the ICC Rules. According to this rule, the ball is considered dead only after giving out by the umpire, even if the decision is incorrect.

This simply means that Bangladesh would have got 4 runs (leg bye) if the on-field umpire had not dismissed Mahmudullah. The umpire gave out, so these runs were not scored. That is, one team (Bangladesh) had to suffer the umpire’s mistake. If this ICC rule was not in force, Bangladesh would have got 4 runs and then both teams would have had the same score. If the match is tied, there will be a super over and then either team can win.
