Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews branded Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan as "disgraceful" after he became the first player in international cricket history to be adjudged "timed out" in a bitter World Cup clash.

"I don't know where the common sense went because obviously it's disgraceful from Shakib and Bangladesh if they want to play cricket and to stoop down to that level. I think there is something drastically wrong," an angry Mathews told reporters in New Delhi.

Mathews was adjudged to be timed out after failing to take strike at the crease within the two-minute time limit.

He had been unable to secure his helmet strap tightly enough, an action which delayed the resumption of play and prompted Shakib to successfully appeal for his wicket.
