One bad tournament and I'd be on my way out: Dinesh Karthik

Washington Sundar Says Off Spinners Are As Effective As Wrist-Spinners

Bangladesh cricket authorities on Saturday (March 17) expressed regret over disciplinary incidents during Friday's ill-tempered Twenty20 worldwide against Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy, warning players that they must uphold the spirit of the game.

In the virtual semi-final last night, Bangladesh defeated hosts Sri Lanka by two wickets.

The match was spoiled by the drama in the last over as Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan called two of his batsmen to walk out of the field to protest against a run-out decision to Mustafizur Rahman on a seemingly shoulder-height ball.

The run out triggered a dispute with the umpires since they did not award Bangladesh a no-ball as Udana exceeded the solitary bouncer allowed per over in Twenty20 cricket. Dhawan has amassed 200 runs in this tournament and we can consider skipper Rohit to be back in form after 89 balls 61 against the same opposition in the last group stage. Bangladesh's team management is understood to have offered to pay for the damage. "If we think it is a big final against India, then it is pressure", Shakib said on the eve of the final, on Saturday (March 17).

Talking about the semifinal, Shakib said: "You can't expect more than that in a T20 game". The visitors in the absence of regular starters MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Ajininkya Rahane and captain Virat Kohli regrouped themselves in the 2nd match against Bangladesh by winning the match through Vijay Shankar's brilliance.

And Mahmudullah completed the chase in emphatic fashion, with a boundary through the covers, two runs from a shot to deep midwicket, and finally a six from what appeared to be a mere flick.

'"Many things happened that shouldn't have happened.", he said, apologetically.

Put into bat, Sri Lanka were in all sort of trouble early in their innings against the Bangladeshi bowlers, led by young left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman whose incisive pace spell rocked the home side batsmen. I was overjoyed. Excitement was there. "I will be careful", he added.

Shakib was especially lucky to escape a suspension ahead of a very important match tomorrow. A Bangladesh substitute who had come on to the field with drinks had become involved in an argument with the Sri Lanka players.

DSport will bean the match live for viewers in India, while Ghazi Tv has the rights for live coverage in Bangladesh. To be honest, we are all good friends. The two sides have met in one other tournament final, in the 2016 Asia Cup, when India cruised to a one-sided eight-wicket win. They celebrated it by doing the famous 'cobra dance'(Which is so much popular in Indian Weddings), and Shakib took his shirt off in happiness to a win he was about to call off a few minutes ago.
