Bangladesh club bowler banned after conceding 92 runs from four legal deliveries

Cricket stumps

A bowler has been banned for 10 years for deliberately losing a club match in Bangladesh after conceding 92 runs in four balls in a protest against umpiring decisions.

Lalmatia Club’s Sujon Mahmud sent down just four legitimate deliveries in the 20 balls he bowled – as well as three no-balls and 13 wides – all of which raced to the boundary, costing his side 80 runs.

The four legal deliveries were hit for 12 runs by Axiom opener Mustafizur Rahman – not the Bangladesh Test bowler of the same name – as they completed a 10-wicket win in 0.4 overs.
