“In the event that they need to play cricket like that, stoop to that stage, it’s one thing fallacious drastically. If I bought late, previous my two minutes and the legislation says I’ve to prepare in two minutes, I nonetheless had 5 extra seconds to go.
“It was simply pure commonsense, I’m not saying (doing) ‘Mankading’ or obstructing the sector right here, It’s completely disgraceful.” Mathews’ dismissal added one other chapter to the bitter rivalry between the 2 groups when he was timed out, the primary occasion in worldwide cricket throughout codecs.

“Till at the moment I had utmost respect for him (Shakib) and Bangladesh staff, clearly all of us play to win and whether it is inside guidelines it’s effective. However inside two minutes I used to be there…now we have video proof. We’ll carry out a press release later. I’m speaking with proof from the time the catch was taken after which I bought to the crease,” Mathews stated.
“We discuss participant security. So, ought to I’ve performed with out my helmet on? So the umpires had an even bigger job, they might have checked upstairs. Even wicketkeepers do not open their helmet. It’s commonsense. It was full gear malfunction.
“In my 15 years, I’ve by no means seen a staff taking place to this stage. Clearly umpires may have checked upstairs (with the TV umpire). I am not saying that if I’d have been there I’d have gained the match.
“We have to have commonsense, it was clearly a malfunction. I did not pull it (strap) and break it. I used to be in full shock. Sadly, it occurs with Bangladesh. I do not assume every other staff would do this.
“Shakib had the choice, they knew it was not time losing. He had the selection (to not strategy the umpires) however he determined to go the opposite approach.”

Yeah, I am higher throughout the guidelines.” Requested if it was towards the spirit of cricket, Shakib retorted again, “Nicely, then ICC ought to change the principles.” Requested what Mathews informed him when the incident occurred, Shakib stated, “He got here and requested me whether or not I’ll withdraw my attraction or not.
