Bangladesh will ask the Asian Cricket Council to review an incident in the final over of the Asia Cup final against Pakistan on Thursday which they feel cost them the match. Pakistan won by 2 runs after Bangladesh could score 6 runs only from the final over bowled by Aizaz Cheema.
Enayet Hossain Siraj, chairman of the BCB cricket operations board, informed journalists on yesterday that Cheema had intentionally blocked batsman Mahmudullah in the last over. He claimed the BCB would demand 5 penalty runs which if granted could force the ACA to undo the result.
“We have viewed video clip of the incident repeatedly. It’s clear that Cheema blocked Mahmudullah intentionally ,” Siraj claimed.
