Rather following the criticism, the wicketkeeper batsman had to Come out and apologize to the fans and also to Nasum Ahmed. Even the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) fined the veteran cricketer for his misconduct. Interestingly, it wasn’t the only time Mushfiqur Rahim pointed to Nasum. Even earlier in the innings, he did the same thing to the spinner with his left arm, and the video of the same has now surfaced on social media.

The incident occurred in the 13th round of the innings when Nasum Ahmed was in the middle of the second round of his spell. Afif Hossain came down the track to play the ball towards the free mid-wicket area and aimed at a pair.
