Kohli was adjudged the ‘Player of the Match’ for his brilliant 64 not out off 44 balls – his third fifty of the tournament – but it was his act on the field which is drawing plenty of attention on social media.

After losing the match, Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batter Nurul Hasan has claimed that the on-field umpires missed an incident of ‘fake fielding’ from Kohli, which could have resulted in five crucial penalty runs for Bangladesh.

The incident Nurul was referring to took place before the rain interruption. During the second delivery of the seventh over of Bangladesh’s chase, Litton Das pushed an Axar Patel towards the off side and came back for a couple. When Arshdeep Singh the fielder, threw the ball towards the keeper, India’s Virat Kohli, standing a few metres in front of Dinesh Karthik, was seen making a gesture of collecting the ball and throwing when the ball was not even near him.

According to Law 41.5 which deals with unfair play “deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of [the] batter” can lead to five penalty runs if the umpires find the fielding side guilty. But in this case, the umpires did not see anything wrong.
