BCB to appeal against umpiring

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan Papon has said that the BCB will file a complaint to the International Cricket Council with regards to the umpiring that took place during yesterday's quarterfinal clash between India and Bangladesh at Melbourne.

Papon said that he was disappointed with the way a couple of umpiring decisions went against Bangladesh and said that he would appeal against it.

“There will be an appeal against this. But that won't change the result unfortunately. In crucial knockout stages like these the smallest of decisions can make a big impact. In this case, so many decisions have gone against us. We will do whatever we can The entire world has seen that,” Papon told reporters yesterday. 

ICC president AHM Mustafa Kamal also criticised the umpiring.

“Umpiring was very poor. The quality was below-par. To  I am sure that the ICC will definitely review this,” said Kamal.

There are a couple of decisions which irked Bangladesh's fans. One of them took place in the 40th over. Rohit Sharma pulled a full-toss to deep midwicket which was caught by Imrul Kayes. That delivery was deemed a no-ball. Replays however suggested that the ball was dipping down below the batsman's waist.
