Bangladesh star Tanzim Hasan Sakib was a little too aggressive as he threw a ball straight at Divyaansh Saxena in the final
India and Bangladesh faced off in the final of the U19 World Cup and tempers flared in the second over between Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Divyaansh Saxena.
The pacer had just delivered a ball and was slowing down as Saxena defended the delivery.
The ball reached the Bangladesh star and he threw it directly at Saxena’s head. Thanks to some fantastic reflexes, the India batsman was able to just avoid the ball, and he was more than upset after the antics of the bowler.
There seemed to be no remorse from Sakib as he walked back to his bowling mark but the umpires stepped in. One of the officials also had a word with the U19 star, and this incident could have turned nasty had it not been for Saxena’s quick movements.
Many fans shared their thoughts on the altercation and suffice to say, several of them questioned the Bangladesh player’s attitude to all this.

India stutter in the final
The Indian colts were brilliant in their march to the final but nerves seemed to have gotten the better of them in this clash.
The batsmen failed to put up a decent score despite Yashasvi Jaiswal making 88 from 121 balls.
Tilak Varma made 38 and was the next highest scorer for the Indian colts. Dhruv Jurel made 22 but he was the only other Indian to reach the double-digit mark.
India made just 177 in their innings and were unable to play out the 50 overs. Avishek Das was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh as he picked up three wickets for just 40 overs from his nine overs.
