Brathwaite thrashes match official’s decisions
Windies skipper Carlos Brathwaite poured frustration upon the decisions of match officials which he felt, went against his team in several occasions during the limited over and T20I series encountering Bangladesh.
After losing the Test and limited over series, the visiting Caribbean side finally lift the series winning trophy of the shortest format on Saturday.
On post-match press briefing, Brathwaite better staged the wrong decisions of field umpires instead of team performance saying his team only claimed the rightful decisions to be taken.
Brathwaite said, “The rule is that if a no-ball is called it cannot be reviewed or reversed. But if it isn’t called, it can be reversed checking the video. Everyone saw that it was not a no-ball. For a young man who is inexperienced, Oshane Thomas was under the pump. To finally get a dismissal but the ball has gone to your name as free-hit, to bowl the extra ball with an extra run, obviously it messed his mindset.
“As captain, I had to take call for the team. I had to make a stance not just for myself or the team but for West Indies cricket.
We haven’t been getting favorable calls or 50/50s since I have been playing cricket. I think it showed that when we played a passionate game by doing the right things, then things happen for us, we need the officials to give what is rightfully ours,” he added.
