President of International Cricket (ICC) AHM Mustafa Kamal on Thursday said Bangladesh will appeal against “controversial” decision of umpire during Bangladesh’s quarterfinal match against India in Melbourne on Thursday.
Bangladesh Planning Minister Mustafa Kamal also threatened he will
resign from the post of ICC chief in protest if situation demands.
The ICC chief immediately gave the reactions while talking to several private television channels in Australia after India beat Bangladesh by 109 runs.
Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan Papon also echoed the same voice, saying that Bangladesh would appeal to ICC against Umpire for giving controversial decision.
Two umpiring decisions from Ian Gould during the match have shocked Bangladesh cricket supporters all over the world.
Rohit Sharma clubbed away the delivery almost instinctively towards deep
midwicket where the outfielder came forward to claim the catch.
When the replay was shown, the error in Ian Gould’s judgment became
clear with repeated viewing as the ball was dipping sharply when the
batsman made contact.
To the astonishment of Bangladesh supporters, umpire Ian Gould called out a
no-ball and reprieved Rohit Sharma and India’s chances of a huge score.
Ian Gould no-balled Rubel Hossain for a seemingly waist-high full toss in the 40th over of the match.
Earlier in the 34th over, Mashrafe’s LBW claim was turned down by Ian
Gould but replays showed majority of the ball had pitched in line with
Mashrafe was quick to call for a review but the third
umpire ruled in favour of the batsman, Suresh Raina who was batting.
