How so?

There were a number of incidents. The main one being in the super over, where Kaleem Sana bowled a chest high beamer and it wasn't called a no ball. A couple marginal beamers were called earlier in the match but the biggest of the lot was somehow missed by both umpires. The batting team (Vancouver) were furious and disputed it for a few minutes, but the decision wasn't changed. Either the umpires didn't know the rules or they were paid off.

A few other questionable incidents:
Saaf Bin Zafar (27 off 26) was happy to keep knocking the ball for singles, even as the required rate went from 10 up to 18 and Russell was still waiting to come in.
Malik was given run out as the batsmen tried to steal a bye, umpires missed that Saaf had first edged the ball to the keeper. Fielding team didn't appeal for that as they understandably wanted to keep Saaf in.
Russell finally comes in, with 51 needed off 15 balls. Bowlers start bowling pies, wides, no balls and Russell somehow gets the equation down to 3 off 3...
Russell had previously blitzed it to all parts but then turns into Chris Martin with a run a ball needed. Two balls he can't get off the square and then manages to scamper two off the last ball to secure the super over.

An exciting game but I would be shocked if that was legit.
