India-Bangladesh WT20 match did not look right, needs to be investigated: Former Pakistan spinner

New Delhi: Former Pakistan spinner Tauseef Ahmed has called on ICC's anti-corruption and security unit to investigate India's World Twenty20 match against Bangladesh in Bengaluru

According to the 57-year old, the final over of Bangladesh's innings defied cricketing logic.

"The way the match ended it just does not feel right to me. I think it needs to be investigated by the authorities including the ICC," he told Geo Super channel.

Ahmed went to say that Bangladesh were no longer an inexperienced team so as to lose in such a manner.

"Bangladesh is now not an inexperienced side. They had experienced players at the crease. I don't understand how they could not first opt to tie the match and try for a big hit. I don't know what to say. Best if the ICC looks into the match and holds an inquiry. Look everyone knows things do happen nowadays in cricket matches so nothing wrong in looking into the match," he further added.

The Tigers looked home and dry, as they needed just 2 runs from the last 3 balls of Hardik Pandya's over.

However they went on to lose three wickets in three balls, losing the tie by 1 run.

While there was nothing at stake for Bangladesh, a defeat for India could have ended their campaign to win a second WT20 title.
