The Nidahas Trophy match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh witnessed an ugly incident between the players. Shakib Al Hasan who was playing (and leading) his first match in the series livid towards the end over a no-ball that was not indicated. Shakib rushed towards the boundary line and almost called Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain off — an act which would have resulted in Bangladesh conceding the match. Shakib was seen furious while talking to the fourth umpire near the boundary line. Both Shakib and substitute fielder Nurul Hasan were found guilty of breaching level 1 of ICC’s code of conduct, which calls for  25 per cent fine and one demerit point each.

The incident stretched outside the ground as well: the glass of the Bangladesh dressing-room was found broken after the match. ICC match referee Chris Broad had a look at the CCTV footage of the incident and found it inconclusive. However, according to reports mentioned by DNA, the caterers revealed that it was Shakib who did it.
