Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka took two important wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya in his two-over spell.
He could have his third when Deepak Hooda was caught inside the third-yard circle, but the third umpire judged the delivery a no-ball after the on-field officials referred it upstairs.
Shanaka had bowled a bouncer earlier in the 18th over, which was called a wide.
However, the commentators, Wasim Akram and Russel Arnold were unsatisfied with the decision. They accused the officials of making a wrong decision, which denied Sri Lanka another wicket in a Super 4 stage game of the Asia Cup 2022.
“It would have been a fair delivery in another game, and the umpires robbed Sri Lanka of a wicket. They made a wrong call,” said Arnold.
“It was marginal and should have gone in the bowler’s favor, but the umpires made a wrong decision,” said Akra,
However, Hooda couldn’t cause much damage and was dismissed after scoring just 3 off4 balls.
