Why Is Virat Kohli Accused Of Cheating In India-Bangladesh Cricket Match?

New Delhi: Cricket fans of Bangladesh and Pakistan have alleged that match officials  ‘favoured’ India in the rain-hit T20 World Cup contest between India and Bangladesh on Wednesday. Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batter Nurul Hasan has accused Virat Kohli of “fake fielding” which went unnoticed by on-field umpires and robbed his team of five potentially vital penalty runs in the game.

Bangladesh fell short by five runs after a revised target of 151 in 16 overs following a brief spell of rain.

While his skipper Shakib Al Hasan conceded that they lost fair and square, Nurul, who kept Bangladesh in the game in the final over with a six and a four off Arshdeep Singh, seemed to criticise the on-field umpires after the game. The incident that Nurul was referring to happened in the seventh over. A video recording showed that Arshdeep threw the ball from the deep and Kohli — at point — feigned as if he were relaying it at the non-striker’s end.
