Another ICC Controversy: Not Just Fans, Commentator Also Criticizes Umpiring Errors

Another ICC Controversy: Not Just Fans, Commentator Also Criticizes Umpiring Errors

But cricket's governing body's attempt to censor the respected cricket commentator has been rebuked by the outspoken Jamaican great. The batsman was dismissed lbw in the next over from Starc but replays showed the previous delivery had been a huge no-ball.

- Buttler's highest ODI score in his 111 innings came against West Indies earlier in 2019, hitting 150 runs from 77 balls - a match in which a record 46 sixes were hit (England 24, West Indies 22).

Later in the match, West Indies skipper Jason Holder successfully reviewed two leg-before decisions and got both overturned. "We should also be very careful not to look to create controversy around an event or match at any time", Bevan further added.

Contacted last night by Sportsmail, Holding said he did not intend the email exchange to go public, and had no further comment on the matter.

But the West Indian who is known to be vocal in his opinions, wrote in his reply "commentators are being more and more compromised by controlling organisations to the point of censorship".

"Inherently in live television, there are occasions when on-field decisions cause reason for discussion or debate, but as ICC TV host broadcasters, our (Sunset & Vine) duty is not to judge or highlight mistakes", he said.

The UK is witnessing more than average rainfall this June and it has negatively impacted the World Cup. "It's a strong reminder to everybody involved to uphold the strongest of standards in our coverage".

The Cricket World Cup 2019 has already become the most-rain affected World Cup in the history of the sport. Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar swept the rumours aside by saying that it is impossible to manipulate wickets in England and India won because they were a better side on the day. But even the English rain was not enough to deter them from whetting their satirical chops and using them against the helpless ICC, which is now left with little option but to courageous the barbs.

Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne said reserve days were "not easy", but added they "would be good for everyone".

Holding's commitment to principle has always been established. It's in Manchester, lots of Pakistani fans there - so I'm really excited about it. "There is not much integrity at the top level of cricket and, unfortunately, that is the way the whole world is going". You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. Holding was referring to the ball tampering incident involving umpire Darrel Hair.
