Sakib picked the ball in his follow-through and threw it back in anger at the wicket, trying to runout Saxena. But, the Indian batsman had left his crease and the bowler was trying to run out Saxena. The throw, however, was wayward and almost hit Saxena, who had to evade it eventually. Also Read - Shafali Verma Was Given The License to Attack: Shikha Pandey

Finally, the wicket-keeper collected the ball. After that, the bowler gave a stare at Saxena, which did not go down well with the batsman as it was unnecessary. Soon, the umpire summoned the bowler and asked him to watch his actions.
Earlier, in the day, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to field. They bowled well to bundle out defending champions India for 177 in 47.1 overs.
India opener Yashashwi Jaiswal continued his rich form as he top-scored with 88 runs.
This is the first instance in 13 games that India had been bowled out in the tournament.
For Bangladesh, Avishek Das was the pick of the bowlers finishing with figures of 3/40 while Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Shoriful Islam chipped in with a couple of wickets each.
At the time of filing the copy, chasing 178 to win their maiden title, Bangladesh were 102 for six 23 overs. India U19 leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi was the wrecker-in-chief as he has already picked four wickets for 25 runs in seven overs.
