Rahul Dravid refused to criticise Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan has been the talk of the town for the past few days after he appealed against Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews for coming late to the crease. Mathews was eventually given out after he faced an equipment malfunction, which resulted in heavy criticism towards Shakib.

Most of the cricket pundits and experts slammed Shakib for not upholding the spirit of cricket, while Hasan defended his move by stating that he abided by the laws given by MCC.

In the latest events, India’s head coach addressed the press, where he got asked about his opinion on the time-out incident. Dravid refused to criticise the Bangladeshi skipper and stated that he cannot blame someone who wanted to follow the rule.

“We can’t blame someone who wants to follow rules to the nth degree just because we may not follow them.”

After the Sri Lanka-Bangladesh match, the Island Nation refused to shake hands with Bangladesh and even Mathews, took to social media platforms to provide video evidence of him reaching the crease within the set time of two minutes.

Meanwhile, India will take on the Netherlands for their last league stage match on November 12 at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
