The ongoing second ODI between England and Bangladesh was witness to a hilarious moment, where the Bangla Tigers decided to opt for a rather strange review. This incident took place on the last ball of the 47th over. Here Taskin Ahmed bowled a zooming yorker which was aptly blocked away by Adil Rashid.
Despite clearly seeing the ball hit Rashid’s bat, Ahmed decided to go to the Decision Review System and appeal for LBW. So far in that over, Ahmed had conceded nine runs and also dismissed Moeen Ali at the score of 42 in 35 balls. Like a lot of us, Rashid was also equally confused with this review.

Further talking about the England innings, the Three Lions continued their aggressive approach and posted a massive total of 326. The star of this batting showcase was opener Jason Roy, who scored a brilliant knock of 132 runs in just 124 balls which included 18 fours and one six. After Roy, the middle order failed to perform.
After this mini-collapse, England’s white-ball captain Jos Buttler stepped up to score a crucial 76 in 42 balls. He smashed five fours and two sixes and recused England after a middle-order muddle. Then Moeen Ali also contributed with another important 42-run knock where he hit three fours and two sixes.
Talking about Bangladeshi bowling, the hosts failed to capitalise on England’s mishaps throughout the first innings. Despite his horrendous review, Taskin Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up three wickets while giving away 66 runs in his 10 overs. Whereas Mehidy Hasan Miraz picked up two wickets but gave 72 runs.
