Bangladesh are on the cusp of registering a historic win over New Zealand but the bizzare review taken by them on Day 4 have made them a laughing stock. In the 37th over of New Zealand’s second innings, Ross Taylor defended a delivery bowled by Taskin Ahmed.
Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque decided to use the final review of their quota. The replays showed that the ball hit right in the middle of the bat. Fans took to Twitter to slam the visitors for taking one of the worst reviews ever.
Dinesh Karthik also used the opportunity to take a dig at Bangladesh. “Review for Bat Before Wicket?” wrote Karthik.

This is not the first Bangladesh have made a blunder. The then skipper Mushfiqur Rahim in 2017 had reviewed against Virat Kohli even without discussing with the bowler, Taijul Islam. Replays showed that ball had not touched the pads and Kohli started laughing too.
