After their win over Sri Lanka, the Bangladesh team will be high on confidence when they face Rohit Sharma-led Indian squad in the finale of Nidahas Trophy 2018 on Sunday at the R Premadasa Stadium.
Bangladesh had pulled off a ‘magical’ two-wicket win in the virtual semi-final of the tournament. However, their victory was spoiled with their overlay aggressive attitude that they had shown on and off the field.
Earlier on Friday, cricket lovers witnessed Bangladesh skipper not being so gentle in the gentleman’s game.
During the clash between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, Shakib al Hasan had called off his players from the ground after they thought that the on-field umpire had given a wrong decision.
The high voltage drama happened in the last over of the second innings when Shakib Al Hasan’s squad just needed 12 runs to beat the Islanders.
Lankan bowler Isuru Udana had started the over with two short-deliveries, in which Mustafizur was sent back to the pavilion on the second ball.
Thereafter, the Bangladesh squad thought that the square leg umpire had given the second bowl a no-ball, which the umpire didn’t give. And the rest is history.
Not just Shakib called his players off the field, even the substitute fielders of Bangladesh were seen in a verbal fight with Sri Lankan captain Thisara Perera.
Though Indian team is Virat and MS Dhoni less yet they are favourites for winning the tournament.
