Bangladeshi wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan accused Indian batsman Virat Kohli of fake-fielding during the seventh over of their chase in the encounter between the two sides on Tuesday.

The said incident is concerned around Kohli allegedly simulating that he is relaying an Arshdeep Singh throw from the deep. However, it wasn’t really spotted by the two Bangladeshi batsmen: Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto, who were in the middle at that point in time. The two on-field umpires, Chris Brown and Marais Erasmus, did not notice it either. Accordingly, the issue wasn’t raised at that very moment.

The law pertaining to a fake fielding incident, 41.5, prohibits “deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of [the] batter”. Provided that there is a breach of rules, the umpire is well within his right to declare that particular delivery as a dead-ball and award five penalty runs to the batting side.

Bangladesh upset over Virat Kohli fake fielding incident

Now, Bangladesh lost the game against India by merely five runs eventually and that perhaps propelled Hasan to bring up this matter in the aftermath of the game.

“Certainly the field was wet and it had an impact and everyone saw that and eventually what I felt is that when we were talking there was a fake throw and it could have been a five run penalty and that could have gone our way but unfortunately even that didn’t come,” the 28-year-old told certain reporters, as quoted by Cricbuzz.

Now, Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus has mentioned that skipper Shakib al Hasan had discussed the purported fake-fielding topic in great length with the umpires.

“We have spoken about it. You have seen it in the TV and everything happened in front of you. There was one regarding fake throw and we have notified the umpires about the fake throw but he said he did not notice it and that is the reason he did not take the review. Shakib discussed a lot about it with Erasmus and even spoke with him after game,” Jalal was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times.

Jalal even mentioned that Shakib discussed about delaying the resumption of play after the rain-break due to the wet field with the umpires. However, they took a final call regarding the same and there was no place for argument in Jalal’s words.

“We have it in our head so that we can raise the issue in the proper forum,” the senior BCB executive quipped.
