Visuals show Naib going down in pain as soon as rain arrived during Bangladesh's run-chase of 115 in the 12th over. Trott, Afghanistan's head coach. was also seen signaling to his players to slow the game down before rain halted play in the Bangladesh's innings.

Simon Doull on-air did not like Naib's 'unsportsmanlike' behaviour whereas Ravichandran Ashwin put out a funny tweet on X (formerly Twitter) asking for a 'red card' to the Afghani all-rounder.

Even skipper Rashid Khan questioned Naib's antics on the field as the all-rounder was seen taken away by the physio and Naveen-ul-Haq.

Naib, however showed no side-effects of the cramps as he dismissed Tanzim Hasan Sakib for 3 in the 15th over of the game.

Earlier, Bangladesh bowlers restricted Afghanistan to 115/5.
