After Channel Accuses Mushfiqur Rahim of 'Handling the Ball' Dismissal As Spot-Fixing Act, he Sends Legal Notice to them

Mushfiqur Rahim, who is the wicketkeeper and batsman of Bangladesh, grabbed the headlines recently for a bizarre dismissal. During a Test match against New Zealand at home, he became the victim of a rare dismissal. He used his hands to steer the ball away while standing around the stumps and was dismissed for obstructing the field during an over from New Zealand's Kyle Jamieson. In the process, Rahim became the first player ever from Bangladesh to have been dismissed in this fashion. He joined the rare list of cricketers, including the likes of Mohinder Amarnath, Mohsin Khan, Michael Vaughan, etc., to have been dismissed in this manner.
After the incident, a Bangladesh channel, Ekattor TV, on December 6 accused that the dismissal may have been linked to spot-fixing. Later, the channel removed the news from their digital platform and apologized to Mushfiqur Rahim.
