India defeated Bangladesh by 109 runs in the second quarter-finals at the MCG but the talking point after the match was the controversial umpire’s decision to call this a no-ball when India were on 198-3 in the 40th over and Rohit was on 90. Rohit went on to score 137 and India set Bangladesh a target of 303 to win and qualify for the semi-finals. 

Here is the exclusive footage of the incident:

Rohit was caught by Imrul Kayes in the deep square leg region off a Rubel Hossain full-toss in the 40th over. Leg umpire Aleem Dar was quick to respond it with a no-ball call and Ian Gould signaled no-ball but replays suggested that the ball was only waist-high when contact was made and on its way down. This decision created an outrage among the Bangladeshi fans as they cried foul and claimed that they were robbed off the match.

BCB President Nazmul Hasan said that It won’t change the result, unfortunately. One wrong decision can make a huge difference in a World Cup quarter-final. I have had discussions with the ICC president (Mustafa Kamal) as no one else among the senior (ICC) officials were here in Melbourne. Legally what needs to be done, we will do it.

ICC President  Mustafa Kamal, who was at the MCG spoke to the reporters on this incident as a fan of Bangladeshi team. He saidFrom what I have seen, the umpiring was very poor. There was no quality in the umpiring. It seemed as if they had gone into the match with something in mind. I am speaking as a fan, not as the ICC president. Umpires may make mistakes. The ICC will see if this was done deliberately. Everything is on record. The ICC has to investigate and inquire the issue to see if there’s anything to it. Before I go to the next ICC board meeting, I can’t speak on their behalf. We are an ICC member, right? So we can’t talk like this against the ICC. They will review it. Everyone is speaking against the umpires so definitely the ICC will find out whether there was any wrongdoings.
