West indies junior team at it again

Disgraceful decision - ball was stationary.

Been chatting about this on twitter, not sure if this happened but umpires should have asked captain if he wanted to uphold appeal. If he did then its a shambles!

It's a joke isn't it, regardless of whether they appealed/didn't appeal I just don't see how allowing this sort of dismissal is good for the game - ICC/WI should be apologising in my opinion.

How is that possible out? Ridiculous. What kind of a moron appeals in that situation.

Absolute joke that. Should be ashamed of themselves.

Wicket keeper seems to instigate it, umpires should have called a dead ball and moved on.

Especially given he was well in on 47 when they appealed which reeks of sour grapes.

That d1ckhead of a WI Captain said,"I asked the Question..." He should be ashamed!
I had a lot of respect for the SA Captain  he showed a lot of restraint giving his opinion! If I had of been chatting, I would have told him that it was insane to gove that out. Do these umpires have no brains!? Absolutely mental!

How many times do we see this in club cricket where the batsman waits until a fielder says yeah youre ok to pick the ball up, a little naive from the batsman but should never have appealed

Utter embarrassment of a cricket team second drama theyve caused recently isnt it?

WI Captain basically said that in hindsight it wasnt in the spirit of cricket and he should of rescinded the appeal.  He didnt use those exact words, but the words he did use actually didnt make much sense!

Agree its a total farce and should never have been out but these guys are pros.  As mentioned above, in amateur cricket most guys would hold their glove up until a close in fielder or wicket keeper says cheers mate so why do these guys think they dont have to?!

Pretty disgusting if you ask me, you've got to be a bit of a tit to think that this is an acceptable way to get someone out - West indies keeper and captain clearly fall into this category

Are the laws of the game outdated? is it time to make clear cut and remove grey areas like this?

So if the ball is stationary you can't be given out handling it.

Got to ignore the laws with Incidents like this, common sense should take over. Obvious he was just being polite and passing the ball back, it had stopped and he wasn't gaining an advantage. Umpires shouldn't have even referred it, they could have squashed it before it lead to this

When I first saw this, i could not believe how that was given out. Let's hope the Windies captain has taken a lesson from this incident.

The South African coach was very composed in the post innings interview, and avoided making this into a big scandal. He must have been seething though.
