I don't know if anyone's watching this, or if anyone cares, but I'm smarting vicariously at the injustice of it all:
That kid was treated shabbily. Russell may project and gesticulate all he likes, but the fact is that his was a poor effort. The ball was rope-bound in any event.
If the twitterati are to be believed, the boy has just been ejected from the ground; certainly, that looked the likely outcome when a group of officious-looking jackets began assembling at the scene. The cameras bravely panned away, however, so I can't be sure.
Andre Russell should be ashamed of himself. I should say that of the authorities, too, but I rather doubt they are capable of shame. And I wince to think how the scapegoat's next day at school will go.
And all this after Ravi Rampaul decapitated one of his peers during the second ODI. These kids need a union.
Since when, by the way, do four runs not accrue when a spectator fields the ball inside the boundary? I've been out of the loop too long.
