The umpires on the field, Hasan claimed, missed the incident. India went on to win by a margin of five runs using the D/L method.
The incident took place in the seventh over of Bangladesh’s innings, minutes before the rain stoppage, when Litton Das sent an Axar Patel delivery offside. While Arshdeep Singh tossed the ball towards the wicketkeeper from the deep end, Kohli, who was on the back tip, pretended to make the throw to the wicket.
