BCCI avoids stretching the Dhoni’s wrong dismissal during the second Test

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) avoids from stretching the matter of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wrong dismissal on day-one of the second Test match against West Indies on Barbados.

BCCI chief administrative officer, Ratnakar Shetty said that they cannot give further direction to this team, as the IMG media have already apologised for the mistake.

During the second Test match, the captain Dhoni was caught at mid-on by Shivnarine Chanderpaul, off the Fidel Edward’s delivery in the 59th over. On-field umpire Ian Gould referred the decision to third umpire, to confirm whether the deliver was a no-ball or otherwise.

After the review, the delivery Brathwaite was shown by the broadcaster was not a ‘no-ball’ and hence the Dhoni was given out. Later, it was revealed that Brathwaite was shown the wrong replay and the delivery should have been given a no-ball.

Following Dhoni’s dismissal, none of other Indian batsmen could stay long on the wickets, and thus they ended their session with 201 all out.

Looking at this blunder, the Caribbean broadcaster, IMG media for the coverage of India-West Indies series, apologised for showing wrong replay as it cost the visitors an unjust loss of wicket. 

"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,”  International Cricket Council's (ICC) press release quoted Chris Broad, Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.

The world’s cricket governing body also raised the point that an ICC official should be there to watch the series, as the series had the Decision Review System.

The global cricket governing body, in its recently concluded five-day long annual conference at Hong Kong, has made the DRS mandatory in all the Tests and One-Day internationals, after making corrections in some problematic areas. The numbers of unsuccessful reviews have now been cut short from, two to one.

India, who are currently leading the second Test against the host by 240 runs with seven wicket, will face the Windies on fifth day of the game today at Bridgetown.
