Bangladesh finished with 109/7 while chasing a goal of 114 against South Africa. A contentious ICC rule cost them four leg bye runs when Mahmudullah was ruled out leg before by on-field umpire Sam Nogajski off an Ottneil Baartman delivery.

According to Bangladesh’s young batter Towhid Hridoy, the on-field umpire’s decision to declare veteran batter Mahmudullah Riyad LBW, which was later overturned in a review, was a bad call that cost the team the match against South Africa. Bangladesh finished with 109/7 while chasing a goal of 114 against South Africa. A contentious ICC rule cost them four leg bye runs when Mahmudullah was ruled out leg before by on-field umpire Sam Nogajski off an Ottneil Baartman delivery.

The ball had crossed the boundary ropes, but it was ruled dead when Mahmudullah opted for DRS, which overturned the call.

According to ICC rules, no extra runs (leg-byes or byes) can be awarded if an on-field umpire calls a batsman out LBW, even if the decision is overruled by a third umpire. Leg-bye runs, on the other hand, can be awarded if the on-field umpire’s ruling not out is upheld after a review.

“To be honest, that wasn’t the best decision. It was a close competition. So, in my opinion, the umpire erred, but it’s difficult for us because those four runs would have affected the outcome of the game.

The ball had crossed the boundary ropes, but Mahmudullah opted for DRS, which resulted in the call being reversed.

According to ICC rules, no extra runs (leg-byes or byes) can be awarded if an on-field umpire declares a batsman out LBW, even if the decision is reversed by the third umpire. However, leg-bye runs can be granted if the on-field umpire’s judgment to not out is upheld after a review.

“To be honest, that was not a good call. It was a tough match. So, in my opinion, the umpire erred, but it’s unfortunate for us because those four runs would have affected the outcome of the game.

“So, I don’t have anything to say about it,” Hridoy remarked when asked about Bangladesh’s four runs that were not scored.

When questioned if he agreed with the rule, the 23-year-old Hridoy preferred to avoid the question.

“See, the rule, what the ICC has done, is beyond my control, but those four runs were critical to us at the time. I believe the umpire has made the call, and he or she can make another. They are also human, and they may have made a mistake.”However, we had two or three more wides that were not given. So, in a game like this, where hardly a run is scored in a low-scoring contest, one or two runs are significant.”So, I believe those four runs, or two wide runs, were tight calls. Even my out (dismissal) was the umpire’s decision. So I believe there is space for improvement in these areas. And we have nothing to do with the rules that the ICC established.”
