Should be banned for a few FC games at the least and any white ball games in between (as that will hurt him and the team more). Dock all match pts from the game and award some to the losing side to ensure Hampshire get the message that cheaters in their ranks wonít be tolerated


Of course, I expect bigger all to happen.. few poxy words from the ecb.. something about lvl 1 pts and Ďnothing to see here, we are happy with having gamesmanship like football now Ď sells init

With QDK also cheating recently itís just proving that sadly, WAAC is ahead of playing fair.. itís trickled into amateur cricket through football and will only get worse and worse unless felt with harshly

SouthpawMark:
Should be banned for a year. Blatant cheating that the likes of Warner and Smith would be proud of.

It's not quite the same though is it? Smith, Warner and Bancroft were pre-meditated actions, this was a spur of the moment thing where he should have owned up to the error when he realised the stumping had been given. IMO It is worthy of some sort of sanction but it isn't as serious as the Aussie incident.

mo_town:
Its times like these when the character of a sportsman is revealed. Any honest cricketer would have just come forward and said himself that it isnt out.
It does beg the question....dont these matches have a third umpire? Surely they must have one at the county level for close run out calls. If there was one, why didnt he just let the on field umpires know what had happened.
