WATCH : Tanzim indulges Nepal captain in heated exchange after double-wicket maiden


After winning the toss and opting to field first, Nepal’s bowlers dismantled Bangladesh’s top-order, leaving them reeling at 30/4 by the end of the powerplay.

The Tigers eventually collapsed for 106 runs, setting the stage for a dramatic second innings. Tanzim Hasan Sakib led the charge with the new ball, taking four wickets and delivering 21 dot balls, including two maidens.

However, the focus shifted to a heated exchange between Sakib and Nepal’s captain Rohit Paudel. The confrontation began in the third over when, after claiming two wickets, Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto set an aggressive field with two slips for the incoming batsman, Paudel.

On the fifth delivery, Paudel was beaten outside the off stump, and on the final ball, he played a soft shot to point. Sakib then stared down Paudel, sparking a verbal altercation. Paudel, visibly frustrated, approached Sakib, leading to an exchange of words before the non-striker and Rishad Hossain intervened.

Although Sakib ultimately had the upper hand, dismissing Paudel with a wide delivery in the following over, their on-field spat became a hot topic on Twitter, generating significant buzz.
