It was high drama in the final over of the 6th T20I of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. With emotions running high, it was Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan, who halted play in the middle. With Bangladesh needing 6 off 2, Shakib came down near the boundary line and almost called off Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain.  Shakib was seen furious while talking to the fourth umpire near the boundary line.

His actions, prompted fans and critics of the game to take on Shakib on Twitter. Shakib in his defence in the post-match conference said: “We always had a healthy competition on the ground (with Sri Lanka); outside, we are friends. Emotions take over sometimes. I need to be careful as the captain and the leader of the team.”
