Windies Captain Banned From 3rd Test After Historic Win vs England

Windies Captain Banned From 3rd Test After Historic Win vs England

Cameron said: 'We will of course abide by the ruling, but have to wonder if such punitive action at a pivotal stage of the series is good for cricket.

A day after Jason Holder led West Indies to a historic series win against England, the International Cricket Council suspended the skipper because of his team's slow over rate during the second match in Antigua.

Holder, who last week became the top-ranked all-rounder in the world, jumped four spots in the bowlers rankings this time around and now lies on a career-best sixth place.

On Tuesday, Dave Cameron, CWI's president, described the Holder sanction as a "crippling decision" that threatened to overshadow West Indies' series victory, and called on the ICC to modify the rule.

West Indies lead the three-match series 2-0 after crushing victories in the first two Tests.

Luckily, the passenger on the train took immediate action and ran to the front carriage to inform the driver of the situation. CCTV footage from the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority in OH captured the incident which happened on 12 January.

Cameron did not specify exactly what modification he favoured, and he is not arguing the letter of the law. West Indies and England are slated to play the third Test from February 9 to 13 at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium.

Indian captain Ankit Bawne said his team was excited about playing the match. And then to get out leaving one second time was very frustrating.' Now he knows the importance of what is anything but a dead rubber.

Holder, 27, third on the charts behind Bangladesh's Shakin-al-Hasan and India's Ravindra Jadeja at the start of the game, leaped to the top position following his unbeaten double century against England in the opening Test at Kensington Oval last month.

Retired Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne also weighed in.

The match ended in three days with variable bounce evident throughout; however, several batsmen were struck on the hands or body and a couple more received unplayable deliveries. What a ridiculous decision.
