Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusinghe on Thursday reacted sharply as umpires had played 21 minutes extra under flood light in the second Test match against Pakistan on Thursday. According to sources, the Sri Lankan left the field fuming over the fact that he believes had nailed down the possibilities of the Tigers. Bangladesh had lost one of their major batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim in the time when the game was played under the floodlight.
According to law, the umpires can continue the play until the stipulated overs are completed provided the light permits.
Under the changed playing condition this is the sole jurisdiction of umpires as opposed to the past.
The new law, which came into effect few years back, means participating teams cannot claim a bad light under any circumstances.
It was learnt Hathurusinghe asked one of the on-field umpires about the light issue only to be reminded of the law.
