Former India cricketer turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar expressed his anger on Shakib Al Hasan post his action last night. Meanwhile, Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka by two wickets in a thriller of a game. As a result, Bangladesh will now face India in tomorrow’s final at Colombo.

Batting first Sri Lanka posted 159 runs on the board courtesy a late cameo from skipper Thisara Perera. Bangladesh reduced the host to 42 for five before Perera (58) paired with Kusal Mendis (61) to revamp the innings. Mustafizur Rahman bowled brilliantly returning with 2 for 16 in his four overs.

In reply, Bangladesh kept going matching the rate, but few quick wickets in the middle halted the free flow of runs. However, it was Mahmudullah’s 18 balls 43 that took Bangladesh to the finals.

Meanwhile, the drama unfolded in the last over when Mustafizur Rahman got out. When Mustafizur got out, a couple of Bangladesh substitutes got into a verbal fight with Thisara Perera. Apparently, the square leg umpire stretched his arm to signal a no-ball, but eventually, they deemed it as a legal delivery once Mustafizur got run out. This raised temperatures in the Bangladesh dressing room and thus, Shakib fumed at the umpires before asking his batsmen to walk back to the dressing room.

Manjrekar not happy:

Manjrekar took to social media to express his views on the same. He stated that Shakib’s behaviour as a captain didn’t impress him.

Not impressed by Shakib’s instincts as captain & leader. Wanting to call his players off the field because of umpiring decisions. Nearly denied Bangladesh one of their greatest wins. #NidahasOnDSport,” Manjrekar tweeted.

He also criticised Khaled Mahmood, Bangladesh’s team manager for acting silly at that moment.

Funnily Khaled Mahmood the manager of Bangladesh team supposed to be the more mature statesman like member of the team was even more fired up than Shakib & more keen to get players off,” Manjrekar added.

Meanwhile, the umpires took control off the situation and continued with the game. Mahmudullah’s last ball six off Isuru Udana handed Bangladesh one of their greatest victories.
