Mumbai: Former Pakistan spinner and the current coach of the Pakistan A team, Tauseef Ahmed raised suspicion over the integrity of the India-Bangladesh Group 2, Super 10 match of the ICC World Twenty20 which ended in India’s one-run win.

Bangladesh looked comfortable and needed two runs off three balls to knock India out of the semi-final race before Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah threw their wickets.

 

In order to finish the match with a glorious six, both the batsmen fell to Hardik Pandya in two successive deliveries before skipper MS Dhoni ran Mustafizur Rahman out in the last ball.

According to reports, Ahmed said the match needs investigation owing to its fishy end.

He repeated that Bangladesh being an experienced team now, it is beyond his understanding as to why the batsmen opted for the big hit instead of taking a single to tie the match.

The veteran wants the ICC to hold an inquiry.
