A man died in Uttar Pradesh while watching the last-over thriller between India and Bangladesh, such was the tension during that match. No one would have even imagined in their wildest of dreams MS Dhoni and his Men in Blue would pull off a 1-run-victory over the Bangla Tigers and stay afloat in the ICC World T20 2016.
But it seems India winning by a solitary run did not make a number of people happy, including former Pakistani off-spinner Tauseef Ahmed.
Ahmed said the way the match ended did not seem alright to him. He also said ICC's anti-corruption and security unit should investigate this match as it looked like the game was fixed.
"The way the match ended it just does not feel right to me. I think it needs to be investigated by the authorities including the ICC, [sic]" Ahmed was quoted as saying by PTI.
The former Pakistani player was reportedly also surprised in the fashion Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim got out in the last over in two consecutive balls, which turned the game in India's favour. They apparently have two of the most calm heads in the Bangladesh squad.
"Bangladesh is now not an inexperienced side. They had experienced players at the crease. I don't understand how they could not first opt to tie the match and try for a big hit, [sic]" Ahmed added.
Almost everyone had their hearts in their mouth when Dhoni ran and took the bells off to make sure India won the game and set up a must-win clash with Australia in their last match of the group stage of ICC World T20. That seemed unbelievable to many. Tauseef Ahmed urged ICC to probe the match.
"I don't know what to say. Best if the ICC looks into the match and holds an inquiry. Look everyone knows things do happen now-a-days in cricket matches so nothing wrong in looking into the match, [sic]" Ahmed added.
