BCB protests to ICC over controversial umpiring in India quarter-final

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has officially protested to the International Cricket Council over controversial rulings by umpires against Bangladesh during their World Cup quarter-final against India.BCB Chief Executive Officer Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said on Tuesday at their office in Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium that they had lodged their protest on the day after the Mar 19 match.The Tigers lost the match by 109 runs after controversial rulings by the umpires over a ‘no ball’ by Bangladeshi pacer Rubel Hossain and the wicket of batsman Mahmudullah Riyad.BCB President Nazmul Hassan had said in Melbourne they would not be seeking a review but would rather lodge protest against the decisions.He also slammed umpires for not reviewing their no-ball ruling, which would otherwise have led to the fall of Indian batsman and Man of the Match Rohit Sharma.He said that the match was going Bangladesh’s way until that point and the wrong decision by the umpires stunned the Tigers.In the 40th over, Rohit, batting on 90, pulled pacer Rubel’s fourth delivery, a full toss, towards deep midwicket and was caught by Imrul Kayes.But Dar, who was at square leg, had indicated that ball was above Rohit’s waist and Gould signalled no-ball.The Tigers were left shocked by the call as replays showed it was under the waist when Rohit played it.Rohit went on to add 47 runs off 24 balls for his maiden World Cup century.
