Controversies • Aleem Dar, the Pakistani umpire, ruled that Rubel Hossain’s full-toss that took out Rohit Sharma in the World Cup quarterfinal match between India and Bangladesh was a waist-high ‘no-ball’. TV replays, however, revealed that it was indeed a close call that could have gone either way. The very following day, Mustafa Kamal, the president of the International Criminal Court, criticized “poor umpiring.” However, the ICC asserted that the umpire’s ruling should be honored because it was a 50/50 call.

• The Pune traffic police fined Rohit Sharma three times in October 2023 for exceeding the speed limit on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. Rohit Sharma reportedly exceeded the 200 kmph speed limit while operating a vehicle and occasionally got as high as 215 kmph.
