Group 2 match on Sunday produced a never-seen-before incident as Zimbabwe players were recalled after the final ball of the match was deemed a no-ball.
After upsetting PAK in the T20 WC Group 2 match, ZIM nearly produced a victory over Bangladesh in Brisbane.
The RAZA lead side came close to beating the Bangla Tigers before eventually losing the match by 3 runs. However, the manner in which the final over of the match unfolded, left cricket fans all over the world scratching their heads. Bangladesh was first thought to have won the match by 4 runs but ZIM batters were recalled on the pitch as the umpire gave a never-no-ball in never-seen-before circumstances.
The T20 World Cup 2022 in AUS has already produced stunning drama and the match between ZIM and BAN was no different. Needing 16 runs from the final 6 balls of the match, Zimbabwe garnered 11 runs from the first 4 balls, leaving just 5 to be scored from the final 2.
BAN spinner Hossain then got Ngarava stumped on the penultimate ball of the match. Blessing Muzarabani then charged forward on the final ball, looking to clear the ropes, but missed the ball and got stumped.
However, the umpires checked the replay and found that Bangladesh wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan had collected the ball a fraction ahead of the stumps. After much contemplation, the third umpire called Muzarabani not-out and termed the delivery a no-ball, giving Zimbabwe another shot at glory.
But, Muzarabani missed the ball again and this time there was no second chance.
