Pillay, 18, was (rightly) given out obstructing the field in South Africa s Group A game against West Indies in ongoing ICC Under-19 World Cup in 2018. Coming in support of the young player is <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Faf-du-Plessis">Faf du Plessis</a>. Du Plessis took to Twitter offering his support, while lambasting the decision. He further went on to add that he has done the same many times. <p></p> <p></p>His tweet read, This is a absolute joke...not in the spirit of the game .I have done this almost a 100 times. <p></p> <p></p>Pillay was given out under MCC's Law 37.4<em> - Returning the ball to a fielder</em> <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">This is a absolute joke...not in the spirit of the game .I have done this almost a 100 times. <a href="https://t.co/nX0KUJ9PI4">https://t.co/nX0KUJ9PI4</a></p> <p></p> Faf Du Plessis (@faf1307) <a href="https://twitter.com/faf1307/status/953516294174904321?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 17, 2018</a></blockquote> <p></p>Speaking about the incident, Ian Bishop told <em>Fox Sports:</em> This is an unfortunate issue. The batsman is not trying to gain an unfair advantage. All he is trying to do is help out the fielding team. I would have to have a deeper look at myself if I was the fielding captain. Can I use some discretion here for the sake of the game and whatever the spirit of the game means? I wouldn t have gone that way. He s obviously a bright kid and he understands the letter of the law. On this occasion it s slightly different for me compared to the last World Cup.
