Controversy at the Cricket World Cup

A baffling incident occurred at the Cricket World Cup when a player was given out without even stepping up to the crease.

Angelo Mathews Falls Victim to Little-Known Rule

Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews found himself at the center of the controversy, much to the delight of Bangladesh.

A Helmet Mishap

Mathews encountered a problem with his helmet and complained about the strap. He took it off and went to the sidelines where the Sri Lankan team attempted to fix the issue.

Time Limit Rule

Meanwhile, Bangladesh's captain Shakib Al Hasan appealed to the official, citing the time limit rule. According to cricket laws, a batter must be ready to face the first delivery within three minutes. However, in the World Cup, this time limit is reduced to just two minutes.
