Chittagong: Bengali cricketer sent a tongue wagging that was strictly objected by Australian cricketer Pat Cummins in third day of test series between Bangladesh and Australia at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on September 7, 2017.

It is stated that Australia lost the series by 6/78 as the tigers lead the first innings due to rain affected day.

One of the men from audience collapsed with Cummins when he was declared lbw to spinner Mehdi Hasan by umpire Nigel Llong.

Nasir Hussein also raised his finger along with umpire and then he wagged his tongue that was even ICC board questioned him.

While the Vice-Captain David Warner (who completed his second century of the series on Wednesday) said, “I wasn’t watching, so I don’t know much about that.

“It’s one for obviously the umpires to look at and deem if it was a send-off or not. From my past track records, I know that the heat can get to you sometimes.

“I know that the heat can get to you sometimes. I am not making excuses for him, but yeah.”

Cummins was the third Australian wicket in succession in fall. Warner added, “I think once you get down the tall end you’ve got your last sort of battles in. You tend to just use it, and I think that’s where the boys messed up last game.”

He said that we all knew about cricket very well and with umpire’s call playing a big role, when he gave out it would be a big challenge.

He added, “That should always in mind, especially when you are given lbw, and these conditions it’s quiet challenging as well.

“Umpires and batsman both do mistakes, so it’s not an easy job either.”
