I was controlled for dropping your catch at the 2019 World Cup: Tamim Iqbal to Rohit Sharma | Cricket News | Instant News

NEW DELHI: Bangladesh top-order hitter Tamim Iqbal on Friday shared the 2019 World Cup incident when he was controlled by fans for dropping the flamboyant Indian bamboo catch Rohit Sharma during the round-robin match at Edgbaston.

Iqbal is having a live Facebook chat with Rohit where he explains the incident.

“I remember how people bothered me for that. I just prayed that you could somehow get out. But when you reached the age of 40, I gave up when I knew what was going to happen,” Iqbal said.

The newly appointed ODI captain then dropped the opener on nine and Rohit went on to destroy a century and play 104 beats and guide the team to 314.

Rohit was awarded the Player of the Match for his brilliant performance with bats and India won the match with 28 rounds.

The right-hand batter was very good against Bangladesh which reminded Iqbal of Rohit.

Indian opener Batsman managed to score centuries against Bangladesh in ICC 50-plus 2015 World Cup, 2017 Champions Cup, and 2019 ICC World Cup.

Thinking about the Rohit massacre, Tamim asked, “Rohit bhai, why do you keep doing this with us? You scored one hundred at the 2015 World Cup [quarterfinal], You again scored one more goal in the 2017 Champions Cup [semifinal] and also at the 2019 World Cup you crashed one hundred against us. Even though it’s because I dropped you in that game. ”

India and Bangladesh have succeeded in forming stiff competition in cricket over the past few years and fans have experienced some interesting moments.

Even the U-19 World Cup final between India and Bangladesh earlier this year was an intense relationship because members of the two sides even clashed in the match after the match ended.

Bangladesh then defeated India in the U-19 World Cup finals to win the tournament for the first time.
