Bangladesh picks up a weird DRS call against New Zealand

Bangladesh exceeded expectations by cornering New Zealand in their own backyard during the first Test of the series. While the visitors played quality cricket for four days, their DRS calls could be called suspicious.

In New Zealand’s 37th inning, Taskin Ahmed served the full ball to Ross Taylor. After the smasher succeeded, the Bangladesh players simultaneously resisted for LBW. Only seconds left on DRS timer, skipper Mominul Haque chose to submit a non-cancellation decision upstairs, with the final review in hand.

Records show that the ball hit right in the middle of the club and even near the pad. As a result, Bangladesh lost the final summation and were left with nothing for the rest of the inning. Watch the event below:

Bangladesh is doing very well on this Test, but there will be some kind of punishment for this 😂

This does not mark the first case that Bangladesh has chosen to consider such cases. In a one-time test against India in 2017, captain Mushfiqur Rahim chose to use DRS to overturn the LBW call that hit Virat Kohli’s mid-stick.

Led by Mominul Haque, Bangladesh played exemplary cricket in the First Test of 2022. At the stumps on Day 4, New Zealand led with 17 runs with 5 rackets in hand.

The visitors took a 130-run lead in the first half thanks to excellent strikes from Mominul Haque and Liton Das. The Bangladesh batting unit played 176.2 times in excess before the New Zealand bowling attack.

Bangladesh has never recorded a Test win in New Zealand and has made their case to the final day. The hosts are comfortable at 136-2, with only a handful of trades left to end the day. However, Ebadot Hossain quickly tapped three goals to leave New Zealand 147-5 at the stumps on Day 4. Bangladesh picks up a weird DRS call against New Zealand
