London: Bangladesh lost to New Zealand by 2 wickets in their ICC Cricket World Cup match at The Oval in London on Wednesday, and many fans blamed Mushfiqur Rahim's mistake behind the stumps.

The incident happened in the 12th over when Mushfiqur dislodged the bails with his elbow while trying to run out New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, who went on to share a crucial 105-run stand for the third wicket with Ross Taylor.

The partnership set the tone as New Zealand chased down Bangladesh's 245-run target, scoring 248 for 8 in 47.1 overs.

Fans took to social media for the mistake.

After the match, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza came out in defence of his wicket-keeper, saying that "it can happen to anybody".

"Mushi (Mushfiqur), I don't think we need to go after him, because it could happen to anybody because he was also trying hard to get him," Mortaza said.

"That throw was straight, and then as a keeper, it's very difficult to tell if it was straight or not. He wants to pick the ball and suddenly it hits his elbow, I guess.

"Those sort of mistakes always happen in the ground. So I don't think we should go after him."
