Video: Pietersen calls back Mashud after umpire wrongly gives him out
Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen called back former Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Khaled Mashud after the batsman was wrongly given out by the umpire.
The inaugural edition of the Road Safety World Series is being continued after the postponement of the league in the mid-way, last year due to the global outbreak of COVID-19. Last year’s league is continued now with two more new teams in the likes of England Legends and Bangladesh Legends. Australia Legends who were part in the last year are unable to join this year due to the pandemic situation.
Bangladesh Legends started their league with the first game of this year against India Legends. The game ended as one side in the way of India Legends. Bangladesh Legends took on England Legends in their second encounter. There also the result remained the same for Bangladesh Legends.
Bangladesh Legends batted first and managed to score only 113 runs for the loss of five wickets in the allocated quota of 20 overs. In reply, England Legends had a comfortable chase and opened their account in the league with a win by six wickets.
During the Bangladesh Legends innings, England Legends skipper Kevin Pietersen earned the respect of fans with his on-field activity. In the 12th over bowled by Chris Schofield, Bangladesh Legends wicket-keeper batsman Khaled Mashud was given out for an lbw appeal. Eventually, the batsman started to walk back, signaling he played on the pad.
England Legends captain Kevin Pietersen had a chat with his teammates and called back the batsman as he was given out wrongly. As a result, Mashud came back and continued to bat. Unfortunately, the batsman had to retire hurt on 31 after pulling a muscle on his arm.
