New Delhi. In the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh lost to South Africa by 4 runs. An ICC rule also played a big role in its defeat. Due to this rule, Bangladesh had to face defeat by 4 runs and this was the difference in its defeat. After this defeat of Bangladesh, the ICC rule is being criticized. It is not that questions were not raised on this rule before. But now when a rule in the World Cup itself has become the reason for the victory or defeat of a team, then there is a demand to change it.

In the T20 World Cup match, South Africa had given Bangladesh a target of 114 runs. In response, Bangladesh had scored 88 runs for 4 wickets in 16.1 overs at one point. At that time, it needed 26 runs from 23 balls to win. On the second ball of the 17th over, Mahmudullah was given LBW by the umpire. The Bangladeshi batsman challenged this decision under DRS. Mahmudullah's challenge was found to be correct and the third umpire changed the decision of the on-field umpire. In this way Mahmudullah remained unbeaten.

Turning Point: The whole world was trying to make Bangladesh win… but Keshav did not accept this; he won the match in 2 balls

But this is just one side of the coin. The other side is that the ball crossed the fine leg boundary after hitting Mahmadullah's pad. There was no question of scoring runs on this ball because Mahmadullah was given out by the on-field umpire. But even when Mahmadullah was declared not out under DRS, Bangladesh did not get a four. The reason for this is hidden in the ICC rule. According to this rule, the ball is considered dead only after the umpire gives it out, even if this decision is wrong.

Pakistan may be out of T20 World Cup, do or die match from 8 pm today, rain may also cause damage

This simply means that if the on-field umpire had not given Mahmudullah out, Bangladesh would have got 4 runs (leg bye). The umpire had given him out, so these runs were not given. That is, one team (Bangladesh) had to bear the brunt of the umpire's mistake. If this rule of ICC was not there, Bangladesh would have got 4 runs and then the score of both the teams would have been equal. If the match was tied, there would have been a super over and then any team could have won.
