ControversiesIn the 2015 World Cup quarter-final match between India and Bangladesh, when Rubel Hossain took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, Pakistan's umpire Aleem Dar adjudged Rubel's full-toss as waist high 'no-ball'. However, TV replays showed that it was a real touch-and-go situation which could have gone either way. The very next day ICC president Mustafa Kamal who criticised "poor umpiring." ICC, however, claimed that it was a 50-50 call and umpire's decision must be respected.
