Yes, he should, and the decision should have stood. The law is absolutely clear. Instead, we now have a stupid precedent, set in the spurious name of "sportsmanship", and endorsed by the umpires and team managers. No good will come from this.

From the news story, he was given a four, which was then rescinded. I feel that the four should have stood or, if, on appeal, it was, rightly, rescinded, he should not have been given out as the play would not have gotten him out anyway. i.e. ball not caught, not run out - ball did not hit the stumps whilst he was out of his crease. Why should he be given out?
