The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has rejected Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) plea to review the last over of the Asia Cup final against Pakistan.

Bangladesh had said that it would appeal to the ACC to review the last over, accusing Pakistani paceman Aizaz Cheema of deliberately blocking batsman Mahmudullah Riyad from taking a second run.

The BCB chairman had said that Bangladesh would demand five penalty runs which if granted could force the ACC to reverse the result of the match in which Pakistan won against Bangladesh by two runs.
