As soon as the final over of the virtual semi final between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy 2018 was bowled, the entire cricketing fraternity was about to witness something you shouldn't se on the cricket field. Mustafizur Rehman was adjudged run out after he tried to pull a ball. The square leg umpire did stretch his hand a bit but changed his decision mid way. Thos prompted the Bangladesh captain, Shakib Al Hasan to come on the boundary and gesture to his batsman to come off the field. The substitutes of Bangladesh were seen in a verbal spat with Sri Lankan skipper Thisara Perera. While sense prevailed and the match was restarted. Mahmudullah scored 4,2 and a 6 in the next three balls and took Bangladesh to the finals against India on Sunday. The entire Bangladeshi team ran on the field and started their celebrations. The dance was intended as a gesture to mock the Sri Lankan team. As soon as the game got over players from both the sides were almost on the verge of locking horns with each other. The Bangladeshi dressing room window was broken and an enquiry has been ordered by the ICC referee Chris Broad. Social media has been abuzz by the shoddy behaviour of Bangladeshis. Should ICC reprimand them?
