Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan has made big allegations against Virat Kohli after the defeat in the T20 World Cup match against India. He has said that Virat Kohli made a fake fielding during the match and the umpires did not pay attention to it. According to Nurul Hasan, if Virat Kohli’s faux fielding was taken care of and a five-run penalty was imposed on India, then Bangladesh could have won this match.
In an important match played in Adelaide, India defeated Bangladesh by five runs. Winning this match was very important for both the teams to go to the semi-finals. Playing first, the Indian team scored 184 runs for the loss of six wickets in the allotted 20 overs. The Bangladesh team looked very strong chasing this target and it looked like it might win the match and their fans were also very excited. Due to rain, Bangladesh got the target of 151 runs in 16 overs but they could score only 145 runs and they had to face defeat.
Umpires failed to catch Virat Kohli’s big mistake – Nurul Hasan
Nurul Hasan believes that if the umpires had paid attention to Virat Kohli’s fake fielding, then Bangladesh’s team would have won this match. He said after the match,
Actually the ground was wet and it was affecting everyone. I felt that Virat Kohli had thrown the throw and for this India could have got a penalty of five runs and the match could have gone in our favor. However, unfortunately this too did not go in our favor.
Let us tell you that this incident happened during the seventh over of Bangladesh’s innings. When it seemed that Virat Kohli was relaying Arshdeep Singh’s throw. However, neither the umpires nor the batsmen paid any attention to it.
