News Daily Digital Desk: Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has come under severe criticism. Ever since Angelo Mathews was ‘timed out’, there has been a lot of discussion in the cricket world. Prasad criticized Shakib. He has brought up the topic of the match.
The former Indian bowler did not hesitate to write about intimidating the umpire. He wrote on the X handle, “Shakib Al Hasan is one of the best cricketers in the world in terms of cricketing talent. There is no doubt about it. But after the 2019 World Cup, being banished for match-fixing, intimidating umpires and being bigger than the game, I have to say, I’m not even that surprised by what he did yesterday.”

It would have been better if the fight on the field had ended on the field. But his legacy is far away. Neither team exchanged courtesies at the end of the game. Coming to the press conference, Angelo Mathews strongly criticized Shakib and Bangladesh. The ‘timed out’ incident caused a stir in world cricket.
