India & New Zealand Share Points as Rain Plays Spoilsport Again

ICC World Cup 2019,points table,run-scorers

According to a report in a leading Indian daily, Holding's outburst prompted a letter from ICC's production partner asking the 65-year-old to tone down his criticism on air.

It continued: "Inherently in live television, there are occasions when on-field decisions cause reason for discussion or debate but as ICC TV host broadcasters, our [Sunset & Vine] duty is not to judge or highlight mistakes".

"We have only requested them to be fair in their comment".

- Chris Gayle (1,596) needs 24 runs in this match to become the leading scorer in ODIs between England and West Indies, Viv Richards is now top of the list with 1,619 runs. However, the third time the on-field decision stayed but it should have been a free-hit as Mitchell Starc had overstepped whole bowling the previous delivery.

- England have won their last five Cricket World Cup matches against West Indies, this after losing their inaugural meeting in the tournament (1979 final). Even Windies captain Jason Holder was wrongly adjudged lbw.

Holding, however, will continue to commentate in the tournament after the ICC said the matter has been resolved.

In his reply, Holder was fuming and even offered to quit whole drawing standards of umpiring in Federation Internationale de Football Association events.

Holding was among several commentators to receive an email from Huw Bevan, the head of cricket at production company Sunset & Vine, urging them not to "amplify mistakes by giving airtime to those incidents". The three abandoned games in this World Cup are an anomaly as far as this tournament goes, considering there were only two before this edition, since its start in 1975. As a former cricketer, I think cricket should be held to a higher standard.

The email arrived the day after Holding had described the umpiring during the game between Australia and West Indies as "atrocious", prompting him to ask whether he was needed the following day for the England-Bangladesh game in Cardiff. But even the English rain was not enough to deter them from whetting their satirical chops and using them against the helpless ICC, which is now left with little option but to courageous the barbs.

He added: "I am sorry, but I am not going to be part of that".

India will be favourites against Pakistan who have failed to register even a single win against the Blues at any World Cup tournament so far.
