Bangladesh to appeal against ‘controversial’ umpiring: ICC chief
AHM Mustafa Kamal, president of International Cricket Council (ICC), said Bangladesh will appeal against "controversial" umpiring decisions during Bangladesh's quarterfinal game against India in Melbourne today.
Kamal, also planning minister of Bangladesh, said if necessary, he will resign as ICC chief protesting the "controversial decisions" made by the umpires.
The ICC chief made the comments while talking to several private television channels in Australia.
Two umpiring decisions shocked Bangladesh's cricket supporters all over. The Tigers ended up losing the game by 109 runs.
The potentially turning point of the match was witnessed by millions across the world as umpire Ian Gould no-balled Rubel Hossain for a seemingly waist-high full toss in the 40th over of the match.
Sharma ended up scoring 137.
Earlier in the 34th over, Mashrafe's LBW shout was turned down by Ian Gould when replays showed majority of the ball had pitched in line with the stumps.
Mashrafe was quick to call for a review but the third umpire ruled in favour of the batsman, Suresh Raina who was batting on ten runs.
He went on to make 65 and pushed India's score beyond 300 against Tigers.
