I mean, even if he's not the brightest it would be something else to just pick the ball up off the ground thinking he would get away with it, and for that reason I think it may be more complicated than it appears.
    However i think he was very badly advised (if he was advised) to plead "not guilty". Especially considering the precedent of Jacobs which i cited above. Reckon if he had said "guilty" along with something in line with the above he may have been treated more leniently.

    Just realised that this occurred on the anniversary of "Yeah Viv Talk Nah". Could argue it was fitting really.

    He should have been given a 4 game ban. Doesn't deserve to participate in the remainder of the tournament.

    You can't "accidentally" cheat though. You might genuinely think you caught it but if you do you aren't cheating as such.

    Haven't seen the incident in question so I can't really comment on it.

    Clearly he knew what he was doing. Sometimes a player has claimed a catch that bounced but its not clear whether they knew or not, so you can't ban them. He knew here, its obvious. He should be banned.

    Nice, yep it would of made Grey Dyer proud. I can't believe people are defending him, it was blatant cheating and he got off light in my opinion.

    Heh, if you want your hackles raised go and read the cricinfo page, where several commentors suggest Tim Southee should receive a similar ban for not giving himself out lbw in the ODI the other night

    Remeber Dhoni's a few years back at Lord's off Pietersen? Dead set nearly bounced up and hit him in the forehead it landed that far in front of him. Even so, I think this one is worse than most of the contentious "catches" I've seen in recent times. He looks down and picks the ball up off the ground ffs.

    I suspect the fact he was playing in England meant he had a "When in [former conquest of] Rome, do as the [former underlings of the] Romans do.
