Nurul Hasan accuses Kohli of ‘fake fielding’
Meanwhile, Nurul Hasan accused Virat Kohli for ‘fake fielding’. After Bangladesh lost to India by merely 5 runs, Nurul pointed out an incident from the seventh over of their batting,
“We all saw that it was a wet ground. Eventually, when we talk about these things, there was also a fake throw. It could have been a five-run penalty. That also could have gone our way, but unfortunately, even that didn’t materialize.”
According to Cricket’s Law 41.5, it is prohibited to “deliberately distract, deceive, or obstruct the batter,” and if an incident is deemed to be a breach, the umpire can declare that particular delivery as dead ball, and award the batting side five runs.
