Watch: Kuldeep Yadav gives LBW decision before third umpire and taunts Tanzid Hasan with ‘finger’ sign

Kuldeep Yadav, Tanzid Hasan

Kuldeep Yadav, on Saturday (June 22), tried to stop Tanzid Hasan from wasting a review but the Bangladesh opener wasted it anyway during the ongoing Super 8 game between India and Bangladesh in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

The incident took place in the 10th over when the India spinner dismissed the Bangladesh batsman. In the fourth ball of the over, Kuldeep Yadav completely fooled Tanzid Hasan with a googly. The ball landed just outside the off stump and Hasan expected it to deflect.

He tried a cut shot, but the googly completely surprised him when the ball swung the other way. The ball hit his back leg, just in front of the stumps. The Indian players requested an lbw and the on-field umpire did not hesitate to rule in their favour.

However, Hasan thought he had not gone out and decided to go upstairs. And while the Bangladesh batsman contemplated reviewing the decision, Kuldeep Yadav tried to stop him by taunting him and constantly pointing fingers that he was right. However, Hasan reviewed the decision anyway and soon regretted his call.

Watch the incident as Kuldeep Yadav mocks Tanzid Hasan:

Talking about the game, Bangladesh were 131 for 6 in the 18th over at the time of writing this report. The Bangla Tigers are chasing 197 runs to win in the must-win clash. Kuldeep Yadav has been the pick of the Indian bowlers so far, taking 3 for 19 from 4 overs from him.

Earlier in the game, India posted their highest score in the ongoing T20 World Cup so far as they ended their innings at 196 for 5. Hardik Pandya starred with the bat for India, scoring an unbeaten fifty to take the team over 190. total. He scored 50 runs off 27 balls with the help of 4 fours and 3 sixes.

India look set to win the match and that will seal their place in the semi-finals. Earlier this week, the Men in Blue thrashed Afghanistan by 47 runs in their first Super 8 game. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be virtually out of the competition after the loss to India.
