Pillay, who was on 47 off 51 balls, inside edged a drive back onto his body.

After the ball had come to a complete halt, the batsman showed a kind gesture by picking up the ball and giving it to the fielding side but he would have never imagined that this little act of kindness will cost him his wicket. Last week in Brisbane, Brendon McCullum felt George Bailey "missed an opportunity" to uphold the spirit of cricket following an obstructing the field appeal against Alex Ross at a crucial juncture in a BBL game.

This was one very weird dismissal and one of its own kind.

In a drastic turn around of events, the West Indies U19 captain, Emmanuel Stewart appealed for a dismissal.

According to the "returning the ball to a fielder" section of the obstructing the field rule (Law 37.4), "either batsman is out obstructing the field if, at any time while the ball is in play and, without the consent of a fielder, he/she uses the bat or any part of his/her person to return the ball to any fielder".

Stewart appealed and after some deliberation and referral to the third umpire, Pillay was sent on his way. "The ball had stopped rolling & the player picked it up". He did not stop the ball from going on to hit the stumps with his hands but only returned it after the ball died out.

100 crore demonetised currency seized in Kanpur
Another speculation is that this money could have been hidden to convert it into legal currency through foreign companies. Police also raided three hotels from where 11 people including Santosh Yadav, a professor, were arrested, he said.

Speaking about the incident, former West Indies' fast bowler Ian Bishop to FoxSports said, "This is an unfortunate issue".

Waking up in South Africa, current Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis was appalled at the decision and said he'd done the same thing a "100" times. The batsman is not trying to gain an unfair advantage. The umpires have done what they need to do.

West Indies were in a must-win position against South Africa in this game too, having lost their tournament opener against New Zealand. It's not threatening the stumps.

British commentator Simon Mann commented: "Your wicket is precious, don't jeopardise it unnecessarily and know the laws".

"The batsman is not trying to gain an unfair advantage. I think it was a great opportunity for their captain to just step in and say maybe that wasn't right". Can I use some discretion here for the game of the game and whatever the spirit of the game means? What he's used to back home, he just picked it up and gave it to the fielding team. He's obviously a bright kid and he understands the letter of the law.
