The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is set to make a complain to the ICC regarding Virat Kohli's fake throw issue during the Super-12s match between Bangladesh and India.

According to BCB's operation committee chairman Jalal Yunus, the BCB has plans to approach the ICC regarding these two issues.

"You have seen it on TV. All of you have seen before your eyes. There were two issues. One was that fake throw (fake fielding). The fake throw was brought to the notice of the umpires, but the umpire said 'I didn't notice it' for which he did not go to review," he said.

BCB will also complain about starting the game before the right time after the rain in Adelaide. Bangladesh captain Shakib was also seen at a heat exchange between match officials for starting the match early.

"Shakib has talked a lot about it with Erasmus. Talked even after the game. At the same time, there was a discussion about wetting the field. Shakib kept saying 'you should take more time and dry the field a little more. Start playing after properly drying the outfield.' But they are umpires…. Their decision is final. That's why there was no room for argument here. The decision is whether you play or not,"

The incident took place in the seventh over of Bangladesh's chase at Adelaide Oval, when Litton Das played the ball towards the deep off-side field off Axar Patel.
As the fielder sent in the throw, Kohli - stood at point - feigned a shy as the ball was going past him It went unnoticed in the field as the on-field umpires, Marais Erasmus and Chris Brown, didn't take action.

However, Jalal also reckoned that it won't be easy to reach out to the board. 

"It's not easy, to talk on the board. If it is a school or something, complain to the headmaster. No such situation. Still, we have it in our mind to go and talk about it in the proper forum (ICC)," he added.
