Nurul Hasan accuses Virat of cheating
Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan has said that Virat Kohli made a fake fielding during the match and it was not noticed by the umpires. According to Nurul Hasan, if Virat Kohli’s fake fielding was taken care of and a five-run penalty was imposed on India, then Bangladesh could have won this match.
How did Virat cheat?
Actually, the incident mentioned by Nurul Hasan happened during the seventh over of Bangladesh’s innings. During the fielding, Virat Kohli pretended that he was catching Arshdeep Singh’s throw from deep and throwing it at the non-striker’s end, when he could not catch the ball. Neither umpire Marais Erasmus nor Chris Brown saw it. Even the batsmen could not see it.
