The incident took place in the 14th over of the Bangladesh's batting when Tanzi Hasan Shakib was trapped with LBW off Nepal spinner Sandeep Lamichhane and was given out by an on-field umpire. Tanzi was unsure whether to take DRS, but his batting partner, Jaker Ali, who was at the non-striker's end, was seen taking help from the dressing room before asking Tanzi Hasan to go for a review.

The third umpire overturned the on-field umpire's original decision as the ball was missing the stumps as per what was shown in the ball tracking technology. The video of the incident went viral on social media.
