In the second ODI of the 3-match series between Bangladesh and England, the latter emerged victorious by 132 runs after scoring an imposing total of 326 runs. However, the match witnessed a hilarious moment when Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal took a terrible DRS call against England’s Adil Rashid, which has gone viral on social media.
England’s opening batsman Jason Roy played a scintillating knock of 132 runs off just 124 deliveries, putting his team in a commanding position. Bangladesh, after winning the toss, invited England to bat first, which turned out to be a big mistake.
When England had crossed the 300 mark in the 48th over, Bangladesh’s pacer Taskin Ahmed bowled a perfect yorker to Adil Rashid, which the latter blocked comfortably with his bat. To everyone’s surprise, Bangladesh fielders, including skipper Tamim Iqbal, started appealing for Leg Before Wicket.
However, the on-field umpire rejected the appeal, and Tamim Iqbal decided to call for the Decision Review System (DRS), confident of getting the dismissal. But, the DRS made it clear that the ball had clearly made contact with Adil Rashid’s bat and was nowhere close to the pad.
The strange DRS review by Tamim Iqbal left fans in splits, with a few cricket fans terming it as the ‘Worst DRS Appeal Of The Year.’ The incident highlighted the importance of making informed decisions while using DRS, which can turn the course of the game.
