WATCH : Shakib down to knees after enticing Mahmadullah into a horrible mixup


After losing the toss and being put in to bat first, Bangladesh faced continuous setbacks, losing their top four batsmen for just 31 runs within the powerplay.

With seasoned players Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmadullah Riyad at the crease, Bangladesh struggled to stabilize before a disastrous run-out further compounded their troubles, stemming from a poor call by Shakib.

On the final ball of the ninth over, Sandeep Lamichhane bowled a low full-toss outside off, which Shakib nudged to the right of the bowler.

Initially seeking a run, Shakib stepped out of the crease as Mahmadullah responded from the other end. However, Gulsan Jha at short extra cover quickly fielded the ball and threw it to the non-striker’s end.

Mahmadullah was left stranded halfway down the pitch after Shakib hesitated to cross. Realizing his error, Shakib dropped to his knees, covering his helmet in anguish, adding to Bangladesh’s batting woes. The incident was keenly followed by fans on Twitter, who shared their reactions to the dramatic mix-up.
