The clash of India and Bangladesh saw another close finish at the Asia Cup final. Rohit Sharma led side clinched a thrilling victory by 3 wickets to defend their Asia Cup title. The result wasn't decided until the last ball of the game. It was a cliffhanger and India stood on top once again against Mushrafe Murtaza and co.

Had Bangladesh added 20-30 more runs, the game would have gone either way. So what went wrong for the Bangladesh team who started off really well with 120/0 for their first wicket?

As per the Bangladesh supporters, the only reason is partiality by umpires. Yes, you read it right. They are once again upset with a decision gone against them. This time it was the centurion Litton Das who was stumped by MS Dhoni after failing to read Kuldeep Yadav. 

As reply showed the toe was on the line and Das was sent back to the dressing room on 121 runs. The fans were expecting Litton to get the benefit of the doubt as the third umpire had taken a long time before declaring their decision.

When Litton was stumped, Bangladesh's score read 196/7. They needed their well-settled batsman to fire in last 10 overs to take them to an above-par total. But they couldn't even play full 50 overs and were bowled out on just 222. 

Fans were upset with the judgment and come out to allege the International Cricket Council of favoring Indian cricket team.
