Bangladesh players accused of breaking glass after win

Bangladesh players accused of breaking glass after win

Mahmudullah, who played a match-winning 18-ball 43, studded with three boundaries and two sixes to win the Player of the Match, described his knock as one of his "best innings". I think we fielded the poorest against Bangladesh.

It will be interesting to see who among the two plays. Taking cognizance of the matter Tiger's skipper Shakib Al Hasan was seen doing appropriate gestures which looked like he was asking his players to leave the field.

Shakib had led protests against the umpires when the second ball of the final over was deemed legitimate despite Sri Lanka's Isuru Udana bowling two bouncers.

It all started during the final over of Bangladesh's 160-run chase when a Bangladesh reserve player, carrying drinks on the field, was shoved by a Sri Lankan player even as Mahmudullah was arguing the umpires' refusal to award a no-ball in the tense final over.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan and reserve player Nurul Hasan have been fined 25 percent of their match fees and handed one demerit point each for code of conduct breaches during Friday's ill-tempered Twenty20 worldwide against Sri Lanka.

Shakib was found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game", while Nurul was found guilty of violating Article 2.1.2, which deals with 'conduct that brings the game into disrepute'.

The left-handed pair of Kusal (61) and Thisara (58) counter-attacked after Sri Lanka were reduced to 41-5. Thanks largely to the Pereras, Sri Lanka managed 69 off the last six overs - their 159 for 7 just about a par score on a slower deck. Verbals and confrontations may make for good television, but when it comes down to threats of abandonment, it has gone way too far.

Bangladesh cricket authorities on Saturday expressed regret over disciplinary incidents during Friday's ill-tempered Twenty20 global against hosts Sri Lanka, warning players that they must uphold the spirit of the game.

Buckeyes survive and advance, will face Gonzaga
According to MyBookie, the fifth-seeded Buckeyes are three-point underdogs against the fourth-seeded Bulldogs. Brandon Key reached double figures for the eighth time this season, finishing with a career-high 16 points.

"You can t expect more than that in a T20 game, so much excitement, emotion", said Shakib after the win.

While the Indian team, without some of its A-list players, recorded three straight wins after their opening loss to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh reached the summit clash with a couple of dramatic victories over the hosts. I need to remain calm.

"What happens in the field should never spill over off the field".

"The fielding coach was straightaway in our ears and pointing it out, saying that's not happening irrespective of whether we have a crowd or not, whether the outfield is good or not".

Danny Amendola Expected to Sign Contract with Dolphins, Leave Patriots
Think, though, of the toughness Amendola brought to the Patriots' huddle, and the leadership he will bring to Miami's locker room. With Amendola staying in the AFC East, Patriots fans will get to see him take on the Patriots twice in the regular season.

Tension between these teams had been high throughout the tournament, owing partly to the "nagin" [cobra] dance that they had mockingly traded with each other, a childish saga that had begun during Sri Lanka's tour of Bangladesh.
