Former Pakistan spinner Tauseef Ahmed says the ICC anti-corruption and security unit need to probe the World T20 match between India and Bangladesh since the result looks suspicious.

The 57-year old, who played 34 Tests and 70 ODIs, said he could see no cricketing logic for the way Bangladesh gifted the match.

“The way the match ended it just does not feel right to me. I think it needs to be investigated by the authorities including the ICC,” he told a channel.

Bangladesh lost the match in the final ball, needing two runs to win from three balls with wickets in hand. Three wickets fell in as many balls.

“Bangladesh is now not an inexperienced side. They had experienced players at the crease. I don’t understand how they could not first opt to tie the match and then try a big hit,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during that match against India at Bengaluru.
