Bangladesh faced a five percent match fee fine due to a slow over rate during their 137-run defeat against England at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala. Led by Shakib Al Hasan, the team allowed England to score 364-9 in their first innings, while they managed only 227 in reply.

To compound their loss, Bangladesh fell one over short of the target for a 50-over match. Match referee Javagal Srinath’s decision considered time allowances. Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel stipulates a five percent match fee fine for each over a team fails to bowl within the designated time.

The match referee’s decision was supported by on-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Paul Wilson, along with third umpire Adrian Holdstock and fourth umpire Kumar Dharmasena. Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan accepted the sanctions, obviating the need for a formal hearing. In an earlier tournament match, Sri Lanka was fined 10 percent of their match fee for a similar offense against South Africa at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

Despite a strong start to their ODI World Cup campaign with a victory over Afghanistan, Bangladesh could not maintain their momentum against the formidable England side. Choosing to bowl first, Bangladesh struggled to assert themselves, allowing England to post a formidable total. Dawid Malan notched a century, and Joe Root contributed his second consecutive half-century in the tournament.

In response, the Bangla Tigers’ batting lineup was dismantled by Reece Topley’s exceptional opening spell. Although Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim managed to score fifties, it wasn’t enough as Bangladesh fell significantly short of the target.

Reflecting on the match during the post-match presentation, Shakib Al Hasan stated, “We planned well, but we couldn’t execute. The ball was swinging nicely, we needed to hit the right areas and build momentum. Once they got the momentum, it was tough to contain them. I think the position they were in, they could have scored 380-390, we restricted them well. But I think 320 would have been a good total to chase here.”

Bangladesh’s next league-stage match is against New Zealand at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday.
