India is locking horns with Bangladesh in the Super 12 clash of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 at the Adelaide Oval. Players often get frustrated when they see their teammates making unforced errors, however, there was a similar situation between Taskin Ahmed and Hasan Mahmud after the latter put down the catch of Rohit Sharma.
After Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and decided to field first, India witnessed a slow start. Openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma could only muster 11 runs from the first three overs, although the situation could have been worse had Hasan Mahmud managed to take a simple catch of Rohit.
The incident took place in the second over of India’s innings when Rohit flicked Taskin Ahmed’s fourth ball toward the backward square leg. The Indian skipper failed to time the ball well, resulting in the ball traveling straight down the throat of a well-placed Mahmud. However, the Bangladeshi pacer failed to judge the ball well and eventually dropped the ball and that gave Rohit a lifeline.
Upon witnessing what took place, Taskin Ahmed was furious at Mahmud and immediately broke out into a spicy rant. The quick implored the fielder because he couldn’t even hold on to such an easy catch in his native Bengali language.
The Bangladeshi talisman, in a fit of rage, did not hold back and ended up calling him ‘Ben Stokes’ to cap off his outburst, thus attracting a lot of attention on social media. However, Rohit failed to make full use of the dropped catch and was dismissed by Mahmud in the following over itself.
Here is the video of the reaction from Taskin Ahmed:

That Rohit Sharma’s drop catch made me equally frustrated like when our fielders drop catches which Rauf creates. Impressive start by Bangladesh.
