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?

Never in all my 16 years of cricket. Unless they are swatting it away to stop it hitting the stumps, no issue at all.

Well most of the teams or i would say players dont care about sportsmanship, they casually throw towards keeper hitting batsman standing in between, in club cricket where there are no cameras foul players will do their stuff and get away with it, in club cricket i need to keep my eyes and mind wide open to avoid such foul plays, there are many others ways like coming in the way deliberatly, pushing etc  :(

The law is irrelevant as the appeal should never ever even have been considered and the law is also up to the umpires discretion upon application. The west Indian blokes are obviously just cocks

My thoughts exactly, what relevance does it have on the game?

I've seen many an older player in my club just pick up the ball and throw it back even without asking the fielding team, its called manners and being a gentleman. Fair to say like most sports the rules are there to be exploited at all cost now, the Spirit of Cricket is dead and anyone who thinks otherwise if kidding themselves.

People do pick up the ball and throw it to the fielder but not before politely inquiring with the fielding team with a raise of a hand. Thats how everyone does it as the ball is still deemed to be in play. What's to stop a batsman from feigning picking up the ball and then steal a single?

Since  2017 The rule comes under obstructing the field you can only pick the ball up and not be out if one of the fielders requests you to do so  prior to you handling the ball  to avoid instances of fielders asking the batsman to return the ball and then appealing and the umpire giving the batsman out has had happened  previously.

Moment a batsman picks up a ball, it should be called dead ball and would prevent this from happening along with this silly rule.

I think the issue is that the ball is technically not dead when the batsman is picking it up. Either the batsman should wait for enough time and just ask the fielding side before picking up the ball if thats ok.

Is this rule the same as when a batsmen uses his bat to control the ball and roll towards a close fielder or wicketkeeper when it has been defended and landed close by to the batsmen. See this a lot when batsmen play spin and just dead bat the ball (soft hands into the ground) and knock it to a short leg fielder for example.

I'm appealing if you try it next season Liam.

While this is a joke of a decision... don't pick the ball up!!
I hate batsman getting their sweaty mitts on the ball, then as a batter not a chance am I touching it. Some poor fielder has to come and pick it up.
