Karachi: Former Pakistan spinner Tauseef Ahmed has said tha the ICC’s (International Cricket Council) anti-corruption and security unit should investigate the World T20 game between India and Bangladesh, terming the result as ‘suspicious’.
The 57 year old who currently enjoys a career in the coaching department said that he could not figure out the logic behind Bangladesh gifting the game to India in the final over.
“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,”
Bangladesh needed 2 runs of the last 3 balls, and both Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah had their wickets intact. Both batsman lofted easy catches one after the other to the same fielder, and the last ball too ended in a wicket.
“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,”
Tauseef who played 34 Test and 70 ODIs for Pakistan added that his experience tells him something was not right about the India-Bangladesh finish.
“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 nowadays in cricket matches so nothing wrong in looking into the match,”
