Bangladesh were bowled out for 142 while chasing 222 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, where they had posted 320-7 in the league phase against the same opponents. <p></p> <p></p>"We wanted to know from Gamini why the wicket behaved like that," said Bangladesh Cricket Board media committee chairman Jalal Yunus. <p></p> <p></p>"It was a wicket of 320 runs. All of sudden it turned out to be a slow wicket. This is a routine explanation, which we can always seek from an employee," he said. <p></p> <p></p>Officials said the slow wicket was contrary to the requirements of home team with experts identifying it as one of the main reasons behind the hosts' debacle in the final. <p></p> <p></p>Former umpire-turned-curator Gamini has been in charge of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium since 2011. He was subjected to some harsh criticism for producing slow wickets during the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 tournament in November. <p></p> <p></p>The ground also came under scrutiny from the International Cricket Council, which rated its outfield as "poor" after Bangladesh beat Australia in a Test match in August-September.
