The video of Rahim threatening gesture towards Ahmed went viral on social media. In the eliminator match on Monday, Fortune Barishal needed 45 runs in 19 balls. The team had five wickets in hand. During the last bowl of the 16th over, Barishal's batsman Afif Hossain turned one of his shots towards the vacant short midwicket area. Both Rahim and Ahmed chased after the ball.

Ahmed, who was fielding at short fine leg, slightly collided with Rahim as he was taking the catch. It was then that Rahim threatened to hit his team-mate.

Ahmed can be seen apologising to the skipper for misjudgment, but Rahim, who was also the wicketkeeper of the match, was seen fuming in anger, and continued indicating gesturing with his gloves that the catch was his.

In the Bangabandhu T20 Cup Beximco Dhaka defeated Fortune Barishal by nine runs to make it to the playoffs. However, a number of people took to social media to react to Rahim's threat to hit his teammate.

The cricketer also said that the gesture he had shown was not acceptable at all and promised that in future he won’t repeat it on the ground or outside the ground.
