    Don't count on the PCB doing anything. They will not risk upsetting CSA and South African players as they are most grateful to them for playing in Pakistan and the PSL and we need them to come back for the remaining psl matches in June.

    Sure ex players and Pak fans will cry on social media but that's about it.

    Clearly illegal & shameful from de cock , I doubt if our management even know about it ! Fakhar obviously knew what happened but was clearly unaware of the law otherwise he couldíve appealed , he deserved a double ton for his efforts today , QDK is in my bad books 😡

    And what was the reason for pointing again, right before de Kock is about to receive the ball? Might it have been to signal the fielder to get in a time machine, turn back time and throw the ball to the non striker?

    No there isn't. The video is absolutely clear that he tried to mislead Fakhar by pointing in the other direction, as is the commentary, as are the reactions from de Kock, Rabada and Markram.

    What Fakhar should care or shouldn’t care about change the fact that there is currently a law which is applied in cricket and it falls under that.

    Ball was already thrown by fielder towards QDK and seconds before before ball reached his end he starting pointing finger at the other end which if third umpire would have reviewed could have easily seen.

    The game is done now but, it wasnt legal as per the law. Same was the case with umpire not noticing or reviewing ball hitting Bavuma’s hat.

    Not sure how and why you are trying to defend which is something that can easily been seen through replay if umpire would have noticed.

    We know he was trying to distract him but there always ways in which you can go around such laws. They are not possible to attempt.

    Anyway, what do our fans want now? Give Fakhar an honorary 200 or give Quinton de Kock a death penalty?

    We like to cry but there should be some end goal as well. I don’t see this discussion going anywhere other than ultimately leading to IPL bashing with our fans claiming that PSL bowling is better.

    Maybe I will see myself out from this thread until and if there is some interesting development.

    I thought it was extremely clever by QDK. It is actually a massive credit to Zaman that - it took a clever piece of mental ploy to get him out as Zaman looked like not getting out at all.

    I actually loved how QDK contrived a run out out of thin air.

    As for the smile/laugh - I truly believe it was involuntary - and it was more a reflection of QDK not believing his luck that his strategy to fool Zaman actually paid off.

    I saw the entire South African balcony stand up and applaud Zaman's innings. I am pretty sure QDK must have applauded Zaman's innings too - it simply was one of the greatest ODI innings in a run chase.

    I guess nobody wants to talk about Zaman's careless stroll and getting himself run out. The game was already dusted by then with 30 needed in an over. It was all about his 200 then. A freak throw and his carless running got him.

    It's actually extremely important to discuss these things.
    When there is a law and it's broken then that leads to inconsistency and you might as well just resort to blatant cheating.

    Hopefully, with a nudge from Saj, our management team will read the rules book and educate our players a bit more.

    He literally turned his head to check if the Rauf was going to be run out which slowed him down.

    I think people so stop speaking until they have actually seen the video and know the laws around this.

    Poor stuff from de Kock.

    If he were playing the 3rd ODI, I'd hope someone bashed his helmet with a 90mph bouncer.

    It's a bit reaching from the posters here to pin De Kock as some villain. Zaman was clearly strolling at the end. It's the batsman's responsibility to ground his bat. You can excuse him for being tired. Also the intensity would have been been different if the game was in the balance with 15 needed instead of the impossible 30.

    The rule books state that any attempt by the fielding team to deceive a batsman is not allowed. I'm not defending Fakhar, he should have run the whole way. However, the move by de Kock went against the rule books.

    QdK used to be that nice guy on the field. Seems to have changed a lot over the years. Had a full fledged fight with Warner, now making fun of a batsman after getting him out using questionable means. At least respect the fact that he got 190+ chasing.

    De Kock did what he thought was right.
    His reaction was a bit poor.

    BUT the blame goes to the umpires (all three of them).
    Players will always push the limits.
    It's the umpires that have to enforce the laws.

    They failed today, not on one. Punt. But in two counts.

    There is no evidence that the chase was impossible.

    There was still an outside chance that Fakhar could have taken us home.

    Have batsmen not hit 36 runs in an over before?

    This relates to morality, but it's subjective regarding who you talk to.

    You can't punish this behavior, but the deception, the illegal deception, should have been looked into.

    Would have been 20 needed of 6 deliveries if the umpires applied the laws. This is why it matters.

    That was 5 runs as penalty as fakhar was deceived by de kock. When throw was coming to his end he was still pointing to the other end as if asking the bowler to gather that one properly. De kock's reaction says it all

    Fakhar was at fault.

    But what de Kock did was against the laws of the game.

    That's what people are pointing out.

    As far as I can see, nobody is saying that de Kock should be hung.

    I know emotions are running a bit high but nobody scored 5 sixers in a row to win the game in the last 5 balls.

    No, it would have been 25 off 5 balls, they needed 31 at the start of the over and it won't have been deemed a no ball.

    These laws of the game are always subjective Saj Bhai. How can you decisively prove Dekock was trying to deceive. I've seen a case where the wicket keeper stayed absolutely motionless while the ball was thrown to him until the last second. The batsman assumed the ball was going to the non strikers end and took it easy. Keeper Dhoni made a split second move to catch the ball and ran the batsman out. Is that an attempt to deceive the batsman too? Does the batsman deserve 5 runs? De Kock has absolutely not impeded Fakhar's ability to complete his run. Batsman's lack of self awareness was the reason for the dismissal. Also, Dekock didn't even touch the ball. It was a direct hit.

    BUT the blame goes to the umpires (all three of them).
    Players will always push the limits.
    It's the umpires that have to enforce the laws.

    They failed today, not on one. Punt. But in two counts.
    Agree with this. I don't blame de Kock for it, but it denied Fahar a deserved double century, that is the disappointing thing for me. I would imagine QdK would have felt a trifle shamed in hindsight.

    Actually the 5 run penalty for the ball hitting the hat could have changed the course of the game.
    Little margins make a huge difference.

    In all probability Pakistan would have lost the game but Fakhar would have made a double century.
    But the real issue is that these sorts of umpiring errors can cost a team in an important game.

    Yes, but the permutations could have changed if we are counting something that happened a few overs ago, think there were about 5 overs to go at that stage. Fakhar could have got out or mistimed some other shot after that, so it won't have been a straightforward extrapolation from that point.

    5 from the hat thing as well. It would have been dead ball so yes its 6 balls. 41.5.3 If either umpire considers that a fielder has caused or attempted to cause such a distraction, deception or obstruction, he/she shall immediately call and signal Dead ball and inform the other umpire of the reason for the call.

    It's one thing if a player makes a mistake. Drop catches and mishits are ok. But when umpires who officiate the match make mistakes, then it's a problem.

    Nobody has hit a 190+ in a chase before, but that too happened today.

    The point is that there was still a chance, and that the laws of the game were broken.

    Go deeper into the rules and you will find some interesting caveats.

    Besides the 5 run penalty and the ball not counting, the rules state that any runs that the batsman ran will also be counted. Additionally, the run in progress at the instance of the offence will also to be counted! Regardless of whether the batsman crossed or not at the instance of the offence. Furthermore, the striker is to decide who will face the next ball.

    That means that Pakistan should have gotten 7 runs with Fakhar on strike, instead of being runout. That's quite shocking and quite a massive thing for the umpires to not know. Especially when we have come to the point of DRS and third umpires calling out no balls.

    I dont think de kock did anything wrong, i mean maybe in the spirit of the game it can be seen as bad but like fakhar said it was his own fault for looking back. Golden rule of running is once your running just look straight and go as fast as you can, and not to worry about the partner. If his partner got out it would still be fine since zaman wicket was key

    Ball landing on Bavumaís cap.

    QdK confusing Fakhar.

    Wind blowing at 5 mph in the wrong direction.

    Mark Boucher coughing.

    Markram blowing his nose.

    I think if our fans and team management keep digging, we can find enough instances that will collectively add up to around 17 runs and give Pakistan victory.

    I hope my final post can also provide closure to this thread.

    Look, here is the deal.

    Pakistan lost the match fair & square. As far as the Fakhar run-out is concerned, we can bicker over the rules all we want and demonize de Kock all we want.

    However, the reality is that Fakhar had absolutely no business getting distracted or fooled by him.

    He was on 193 and the team needed a 6 of every delivery left and he was batting with a tail-ender.

    It wasnít his concern or his problem if Rauf was getting run-out, because Fakhar had to be on strike in any case and his only concern at that point should have been to get back to his crease as quickly as possible.

    If he got distracted, it is his own fault for exhibiting a momentary lapse in concentration and proving himself to be yet another Pakistani player who lacks match-awareness and doesnít keep his head in the game at all times.

    There is literally no reason and no justification why he should have been worried about Rauf getting run-out at that point.

    When your only concern is to get back to your crease as soon as possible, you do not look back and slow down just because of the WKís gesture.

    Did de Kock break the law? Maybe he did.

    Did Fakhar make a mistake? Yes, 100%.

    That is all.
