However, Bangladesh’s skipper Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy fought back valiantly, forming a resilient partnership. At the time, they had already completed a century stand and were steadily gaining momentum, frustrating the Indian bowlers. Despite the growing pressure, the Men in Blue remained composed, and wicket-keeper batsman KL Rahul played a crucial role in maintaining their cool.

In the 25th over, Ravindra Jadeja bowled a delivery that sharply turned into the left-handed Shakib. The ball hit Shakib’s thigh, leading to a loud appeal from the Indian fielders. While the umpire remained unmoved, both Jadeja and captain Rohit Sharma showed interest in reviewing the decision.

However, Rahul calmly offered his perspective, convincing them not to go for the review. Subsequent replays revealed that both the impact and striking point with the stumps were in the umpire’s call zone, vindicating Rahul’s judgment.
