Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan became a victim of a controversial decision by the third umpire in the ongoing Pakistan versus Bangladesh game at the Adelaide Oval.

The incident set social media on fire, with experts and fans coming out in support of the Bangladesh skipper, stating Shakib was a sufferer in the LBW dismissal.

It all happened during the 11th over of Bangladesh innings bowled by all-rounder Shadab Khan. The Pakistan star had already dismissed Soumya Sarkar and trapped Shakib in front with a flighted delivery.

Shakib was adjudged LBW by the on-field umpire and instantly went upstairs. The replays showed a clear spike on the ball when it passed the bat before hitting the pads. However, the third umpire felt there was no conclusive evidence to overturn the decision and went with the on-field umpire. Shakib was visibly shocked by the decision and stood his ground, expressing his disappointment. But he had no option left and so walked back to the dugout on golden duck.

Notably, the loss of South Africa against the Netherlands confirmed India’s semi-final birth and opened the doors for both Bangladesh and Pakistan to contest for a place in the semis.

Meanwhile, most viewers were left baffled by the seemingly substandard umpiring as they expressed shock and disbelief over Shakib’s dismissal.

Here is how netizens reacted:
