Debasis Sen, Colombo: In a shocking incident that took place here at the Premadasa Stadium, few Bangladeshi cricketers were involved in breaking the glass window of the visitors dressing room following their thrilling win over Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy on Friday. The incident took after the match was over when the Bangladesh cricketers were celebrating their thrilling win in the dressing room.

The ground staff at R. Premadasa Stadium has been requested to study the CCTV footage to find out who caused the damage at Bangladesh dressing room during the final group game.

The matter was immediately brought to the notice of ICC Match Referee Chris Broad who in turn has asked the local officials to go through the CCTV footage to find out who the actual culprit is.

The controversy took place in the second ball of the last over bowled by Isuru Udana during the Bangladesh innings. Bangladesh players were complaining that Udana bowled consecutive bouncers in the over which is not according to the law.

Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan during his post match conference said, “The square leg umpire had signaled it a no-ball and then upon discussions, changed the call, which I don’t think is the right decision. I don’t know if the first bouncer was called as one for the over but when the second bouncer was bowled, the umpire did call it a no-ball.”

According to Sri Lankan batsman Kusal Perera, “I think the head umpire did not call second bouncer. So I feel that is a legal delivery,”

The ground staff is supposed to submit a report to the match referee before 12 noon on Saturday. Meanwhile, the umpires also will study video footage of the closing stages of the game before deciding whether they should press charges against any player.
