T20 World Cup 2014: India elect to bowl against West Indies

India won the toss and elected to bowl against West Indies in their second Super 10 Group 1 match at the World T20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

India remain unchanged for this side. West Indies play their first game today and look a well-balanced.

West Indies captain Darren Sammy said, “We feel very ready as a team having prepared very well. They are a good bunch of boys and we enjoy playing against them.

“We would look to put the runs on the board like Pakistan. We have two spinners in the side, Narine and Badree. Ravi, Fletcher, Cotterell miss out and one more name I forgot.”

India captain MS Dhoni said, “We tend to relax as there is no reason why we should be tensed as of now, but once the game starts, things will be different.

“We are looking to bowl first. There is a bit of dew around, but it’s not alarming though. We are playing with the same squad.”

ICC Confirms Mistake On Dhoni Dismissal

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that an error by the host broadcaster during the first day of the Second Digicel Test between the West Indies and India in Barbados led to the wrong replay being shown to the third umpire during a review of a no-ball.

Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was out caught at mid-on off the bowling of Fidel Edwards in the 59th over. On-field umpire Ian Gould suspected that the delivery may have been a no-ball so, as per the correct protocols, he sought confirmation from the third umpire, Gregory Brathwaite.

Upon review, the delivery Brathwaite was shown by the host broadcaster was legitimate and so Dhoni was given out. It was subsequently established that Brathwaite had been shown the wrong replay and that the delivery that led to Dhoni’s dismissal should indeed have been called a no-ball.

“The host broadcaster for this series, IMG Media, acknowledged the mistake and has apologised. Having looked into the situation, I am satisfied it was an unfortunate but honest mistake in what is a tense and live environment. It is worth pointing out that the umpires followed the correct procedures and are without blame in this matter.” said Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.

“Seeing as the game has continued, clearly there is no opportunity to reverse the decision. We are forced now put it behind us and move on with the remainder of the match,” said Mr Broad.

A spokesman for IMG said: “IMG Media takes its responsibilities on this matter very seriously. This was a case of human error, compounded by a senior replay operative having to return home at very short notice.”

As this series is not operating the Decision Review System (DRS), the enhanced standards, including the presence of an ICC technical official, is not in place as would be the case when DRS is used.
