WATCH: Bangladesh batter seeks dressing room’s help to review LBW decision against Nepal

Although the LBW decision was overturned following the review, Tanzim's brief reprieve was short-lived, as Lamichhane's googly dismissed the 21-year-old on the very next delivery.

The T20 World Cup 2024 match between Bangladesh and Nepal was about more than just some exciting cricket. Jaker Ali of Bangladesh made headlines when he seemed to check with the dressing room before assisting Tanzim Hasan Sakib in obtaining a very late review after Sakib was declared leg before wicket against Sandeep Lamichhane.

Cheeky review results in not-out

The contentious event happened in Bangladesh’s innings’ 14th over. Tanzim was struck by Lamichhane on the pads, and the umpire ruled the batter out by raising his finger. Jaker Ali, the non-striker, was seen on camera seemingly looking toward the Bangladeshi team’s dressing room as Sakib started to leave.

The DRS timer was about to go off when he motioned to his partner to review the decision. Replays contradicted the on-field call because they showed the ball missing off stump. However, Tanzim’s brief reprieve was short-lived, as Lamichhane’s googly dismissed the 21-year-old on the very next delivery.

In line with Article 3 2.3, the tournament’s rules states that umpires may refuse a review if they think the players were given advice from people outside the field, especially in the dressing room.

Will Tanzim and Jaker face charges?

Players who violate Article 2.15 of the ICC’s Code of Conduct may face sanctions, such as suspensions, for requesting off-field help in making a review decision. Although the review was allowed during the game and the umpires did not object, if Ali and Tanzim are found guilty of the alleged breach, they may be charged with a Level 3 offense.
