New Delhi: A few days after England captain Ioan Morgan defended receiving signals from the dressing room during the T20I match against South Africa, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar protested against the use of placards during the match, saying, “Is there a code? ..
The third T-20 television broadcast between England and South Africa signaled to the team of England’s White-ball analyst Nathan Leeman. While Morgan has said that this is not against the spirit of the game, Gavaskar presented his stand on the incident as a distraction and said it should not be in cricket.
“Do I want to know if the match referee confirmed it with the ICC? Did they ask the ICC? The ICC’s cricket committee sanctioned it, which we do not know yet. This is the first time we have used this tactic in the Pakistan Super League and it could have been the same analyst who used it here. Gavaskar asked while speaking at Star Sports Show Cricket Connected, “If the second thing is in a situation of worsening DRS, is there a code to help the DRS make the decision?”
Gavaskar said, “Ideally, as captain, I don’t like this happening. If I was a captain, I would say, see if you want to send a message about any field placement or bowling change, then send water or something across the 12th man …. you send a message. Method or 12th person or coach message can be passed to the boundary fielder. ”
Former cricketer VVS Laxman also echoed the sentiments and said that if it is part of the rule, the team does not need a captain.
“Often when a captain has to make a decision in T20 cricket, he discusses it with a coach or auxiliary staff or a senior player, and the captain usually decides to post that debate. “You want the captain to fulfill his role. Otherwise you don’t need a captain, and a manager can run the team from the outside, just like in football,” he said.
Former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden said: “What’s this all about, how effective is that? I mean, some of these codes are mixed up because at that potential there was a run-scoring fun and that’s the whole point of communication. You execute a project, you can’t quit understanding it. ”
