BCB objects to ICC about umpiring

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has sent official objection to ICC regarding controversial umpiring in the World Cup quarter-final match between Bangladesh and India.

BCB Chief Executive Officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury said the board sent the objection letter to ICC on March 20.

The BCB official made the disclosure in response to journalists' query regarding the issue on Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond sent a legal notice to the BCB authorities requesting them to appeal with the ICC for punishing the umpires for their wrong decisions in the match.

The SC lawyer sent the notice to BCB team manager, its president, and secretary to the sports ministry.

In the notice, Eunus mentioned that umpires Ian Gould and Aleem Dar had given three wrong decisions regarding dismissals of Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad and no ball call of Rubel Hossain during the match on March 19.

Rohit Sharma, the Indian opener was given not out in his 90's when he was caught deep in the field. Pakistani Umpire Aleem Dar was quick to rule out the delivery as no-ball claiming that the ball was above the batsman’s waist. The swift decision surprised commentators Shane Warne and Harsha Bhogle who agreed that generally the umpires took a little more time on that decision.

However, the replay showed that the ball was under the waist when the batsman played the stroke.

The batsman went on to score 137.

Tigers faced another horrendous decision when Mahmudullah, the man who scored back to back centuries in previous matches, was given out caught in the deep.
