T20 World Cup 2024 Mahmudullah LBW out controversy: Explained why Bangladesh were not given 4 runs against South Africa, Wasim Jaffer-Ambati Rayudu looked angry

SA vs BAN T20 World Cup: Last Monday, in the T20 World Cup, South Africa defeated Bangladesh by 4 runs in a thrilling match. With Mahmadullah at the crease, Bangladesh's victory seemed almost certain, but an incident that happened in the 17th over has created controversy. Actually, in the 17th over, there was an LBW appeal against Mahmadullah, for which the umpire declared him out. But when DRS was taken, Mahmadullah was found not-out. The controversial moment of this incident was that the ball had crossed the boundary line after hitting Mahmadullah's pad, yet Bangladesh was not given 4 runs.

Know the matter in detail

Bangladesh was chasing the target of 114 runs given by South Africa. By the time 16.1 overs were played, Bangladesh had scored 88 runs after losing 4 wickets. Experienced batsman Mahmadullah was already settled at the crease by scoring 15 runs in 18 balls. Otniel Bartman was bowling in the 17th over and the second ball of the over hit Mahmadullah's pad and went to the boundary in the direction of fine leg. But the South African camp had appealed for LBW on this. When Mahmadullah took DRS, it was found that the ball was completely missing the leg stump.

Now the question was whether Bangladesh will get 4 runs or not as the ball went to the boundary. The umpire signaled that no runs will be given to Bangladesh. Even the commentators said that the umpire's decision was wrong, so how could Bangladeshi fans sit quiet? Since the margin of Bangladesh's defeat was also 4 runs, a controversy has arisen that if the team had got 4 runs, then Bangladesh could have easily won this match.

What are the rules?

Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer posted on social media on this topic and told why Bangladesh was not given 4 runs. He told that Mahmudullah was given LBW out and the ball hit the pad and went to the boundary, but the umpire's decision was changed in DRS. Bangladesh did not get runs because once the batsman is given out, the ball becomes dead. Then whether a four or a six is ​​hit on it, those runs will not be counted after the batsman is given out.

Ambati Rayudu also reacted

Former Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu also reacted on this issue and said, “In the 150-year history of cricket, no umpire would have declared the batsman out on that ball. That was a very bad decision. Just because a small part of the leg stump is visible does not mean that the batsman is out. You also have to see the angle of the ball, from where the ball was coming.”
