The Men in Blue won the game by 5 runs in a rain-hit contest. Virat Kohli may be the top run scorer for India in the tournament, but his on-field attitude has come under questioning. Although the 33-year-old is the leading run-scorer in the ICC T20 World Cup with three half-centuries, his one controversial act has turned some fans against him.

On the second ball of the 7th over of Bangladesh’s chase, India pacer Arshdeep Singh collected the ball and threw it to the wicketkeeper. Kohli, who had no role, gestured to collect the ball and throw it when it was not even near to him. Litton Das and Nazmul Hasan Shanto didn’t see Virat and completed two runs easily.

While speaking to the press after the match, Bangladesh cricketer Hasan said, "We all saw that it was wet ground. Eventually, when we talk about these things, there was also a fake throw. It could have been a five-run penalty. That also could have gone our way, but unfortunately, even that didn't materialise."

The cricket rules say that Players are forbidden from "the deliberate distraction, deception, or obstruction of the batter" according to Cricket Law 41.5. If the incident is found to have violated the regulation, the umpire has the authority to award the batting side five penalty runs and declare the ball dead.
