MCC backs umpires in Mathews ‘time-out’ furore

The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has stated that the umpires made the correct decision in declaring Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews “timed out” during their World Cup match against Bangladesh. Mathews became the first player in international cricket to be dismissed for a time ruling after failing to prepare himself within the allotted two minutes to face Bangladesh captain and bowler Shakib Al Hasan. The strap on Mathews’ helmet broke, and by the time a replacement arrived, he was deemed to have exceeded his time allowance. Mathews criticized Bangladesh and the umpires for their handling of the “equipment malfunction,” while the MCC argued that Mathews should have informed the umpires about his broken helmet instead of waiting for a new one. The MCC suggested that if Mathews had explained the situation to the umpires and requested time to resolve it, they might have allowed him to change the helmet without being timed out. Despite offers to withdraw the appeal, Shakib stood firm, and Mathews claimed it was unsafe to face a bowler with a defective helmet. However, the MCC maintained that Mathews should have involved the umpires to address the issue. Sri Lanka’s membership in the tournament has been suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) due to government interference in their board’s operations.
