PAK vs BAN: ‘Just focus on Pat’s shadow’



former India Opener Akash Chopra slammed a bad referee during the crucial T20 Pakistan vs Bangladesh match Globalism Cup match at Adelaide Oval Stadium on Sunday. The two Asian teams faced each other in pursuit of a place in the semi-finals. The Netherlands made the equation very easy after beating South Africa on Sunday morning with Bangladesh and Pakistan both having an equal chance of finishing second in their group.

Meanwhile, in the eleventh round of the match, Shadab Khan turned the momentum in Pakistan’s favor with the ball. He expelled Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al-Hassan in successive renditions to put Pakistan ahead. However, Chakib’s dismissal grabbed the spotlight as the referee became substandard under scanner.

The Bangladeshi skipper hit the ground on the first ball of his inning but failed to carry out his plans as the referee awarded him to LBW. Southpaw immediately took the review to forward the decision to the third referee. During the replay, there was a visible spike on UltraEdge when the ball was close to the bat, however, the third referee felt that the spike was due to the racket hitting the ground. The referee’s decision was kept on the pitch as Shakib was visibly frustrated with the call.

Chopra, who is vocal about his views and opinions, takes a shot at the weak referee pointing to the shadow of the bat as he makes his point.

Shakib’s racket never touched the ground. Focus only on the shadow of the bat. There was a rise. It can’t be anything other than hitting the ball to the racket. Bangladesh is on the receiving end of a bad refereeing decision. Chopra tweeted #PakvBan #T20WorldCup.

Meanwhile, fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi took four wickets as Pakistan beat Bangladesh 127-8 in the T20 World Cup.

The winner of the Super 12 competition in Adelaide will advance to the semi-finals along with India – who qualified after the Netherlands stunned South Africa – from Group 2.

Shaheen, who returned his best figure in the T20 from 4 to 22, defeated early for Pakistan as he quickly returned his left arm to Leighton Das for 10 years after Bangladesh picked the racket first.
