Dhaka: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said her country was “made to lose” the cricket World Cup quarter-final against India, according to media reports on Saturday.
“There’s nothing to be upset. Everyone has seen how we were made to lose. We will win in the future,” she was quoted as saying by bdnews24.com. “We would have won if the umpires did not give wrong decisions. Insha Allah, Bangladesh will win in the future. Bangladesh will become world champions someday,” she said.
The prime minister’s comments came after International Cricket Council (ICC) president Mustafa Kamal, from Bangladesh, courted a major controversy when he said the on-field umpires had entered the match with an agenda.
