Shakib had reviewed the umpire’s decision immediately, believing he had edged the ball, but the third umpire did not have conclusive evidence.

Shakib Al Hasan’s dismissal in Shadab Khan’s 11th over attracted some controversy after as giving him LBW was considered to be an umpiring error.
Shakib was adjudged LBW as Shadab bowled a tossed-up delivery and it dipped as it got closer to him. The ball hit his pads and the umpire ruled him out. However, he reviewed it straight away.

The snicko showed a big spike when the ball passed the bat, but the bat hit the ground at the same time, and hence, the umpire didn’t have conclusive evidence to overturn the on-field decision.
The other aspect of the dismissal was that Shakib was more than three metres down the track, and hence the on-field decision stayed.
Considering that the southpaw had it reviewed straight away, he was sure of an inside edge and was devastated by the final call.

Shakib’s bat didn’t touch the ground at all. Just focus on bat’s shadow. There was a spike. It couldn’t have been anything else except the ball hitting the bat. Bangladesh at the receiving end of a poor umpiring decision. #PakvBan #T20WorldCup

Even Shakib Al Hasan doesn’t want to leave and he has a words with the umpires before trudging off. Shakib knows ball touched the ball. Ridiculous umpiring.
