ICC World T20 | Twitter reacts as Taskin Ahmed resorts to ‘Ben Stokesing’ Hasan Mahmud for dropping incredible keeper

Players often get frustrated when they see their teammates making schoolboy mistakes, of which there have been plenty of incidents in the past. However, only a few could beat what just happened between Taskin Ahmed and Hasan Mahmud after the latter caught Rohit Sharma’s hold.

After Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and decided to field first, India got off to a slow start against Bangladesh on Wednesday at the ongoing T20 World Cup in Adelaide. Openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma could only muster 11 points from the first three overs, although the situation could have been worse if Hasan Mahmud had managed to take a single hold from Rohit.

The incident happened during India’s second inning when Rohit threw Taskin Ahmedthe fourth ball from to the back square leg. The Indian skipper didn’t get the timing he would have hoped for which sent the ball straight into the throat of a well-placed Mahmud. However, the Bangladeshi pacer managed to inflate the hold and in doing so gave Rohit a lifeline.

Seeing what happened, Taskin was furious with Mahmud and immediately burst into a spicy rant. The speedy implored the defender why he couldn’t even hold on to such an easy hold in his native Bengali language. The Bangladeshi talisman, in a fit of rage, didn’t hold back and ended up calling him “Ben Stokes” to cap off his outburst, garnering a lot of attention on social media.

However, Rohit failed to take full advantage of the dropped hold and was sent back by Mahmud into the sequel on his own.

This frustration that you never see in any player!🤣🤣

Nope! Not today.

Lucky but unlucky!

The big man is gone!

How can a human be so lucky!

Drop catch + Luck = Rohit


Wara returns!
