The second One-Day International (ODI) between New Zealand and Bangladesh, played on Saturday, September 23 at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, was full of drama, with several controversial incidents. Bangladesh seamer Hasan Mahmud ran out New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi at the non-striker’s end in his delivery stride for backing up too far in the 46th over of the first innings.
The judgment refer to the third umpire, who rule that the batter was out under the revised rules of the game. In a remarkable turn of events, Bangladesh captain Litton Das and Mahmud withdrew their request to recall Sodhi. When he summon back, the Kiwi player approach Mahmud and hugged him.
However, an even more odd moment occurred later in the game on the second ball of the 49th over. Ish Sodhi ended up edging a slower ball from Khaled Ahmed straight to the wicketkeeper, but the umpire denied Bangladesh’s appeal. Unsatisfied with the umpire’s judgment, Ahmed urged his captain to review it. Replays reveal a distinct edge from Sodhi’s bat carrying to the wicketkeeper’s hands, forcing the decision to be reversed.
