Afghanistan vs Bangladesh: 3rd Umpire Faces Ire as Fume fans About Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar Dismissal

Afghanistan against Bangladesh in the ICC World Cup 2019 had a controversial moment early on when Liton Das was caught by Hashmatullah Shahidi on Mujeeb Ur Rahman & # 39; s episode in the fifth.

Afghanistan is already out of the fight for a semi-final place at the World Cup while Bangladesh is still fighting for the top four and every game for them is of the utmost importance.

On Monday, Afghanistan won the pitch and chose to throw, while Bangladesh sent Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal as the opening hit. The pair initially worked around the ball and had a longer length.

In the fifth, Mujeeb delivered a full length and Liton started to drive but the ball went towards Shahidi, who grabbed a very low flyout.

The referees on the field referred the decision up to the third referee Aleem Dar and gave the soft signal of & # 39; from & # 39 ;.

After several repetitions that did not rule out whether Shahidi had his fingers under the ball or if the ball had hit the ground, Aleem Dar maintained the decision on the field and said he had nothing concrete to ignore the soft signal.

Because Liton Das had to leave early, Bengali fans went to Twitter to hand out their anger on the third referee.

Postings pictures and repetitions of the catch, Bangladeshi fans were convinced that the catch was not clean and that Liton should not have been.

Apart from the resignation of Liton Das, the decision of Soumya Sarkar also led to quite a few controversies. Sarkar received LBW on the delivery from Mujeeb, but the Bengali all-rounder opted for a DRS assessment.

While the DRS assessment is red for all factors and & # 39; referee & # 39; before the bail showed, the enthusiasm of the fans was that the ultra edge was not available for review.
