Dhaka, 6 November 2022 : Shakib Al Hasan's controversial dismissal made the entire T20 World Cup match against Pakistan controversial.

If Shakib was not dismissed due to bad umpriring then the result of the contest would hve been different.

That Rizwan got out after scoring 32 runs off 32 balls. Pakistan scored 57 runs in the opening pair. Babar Azam was dismissed for 25 runs off 33 balls. Mohammad Nawaz came to bat in one down. He was run out on the field. Made only 4 runs.
