So that was a very nice scene, my first meeting with a match referee!" coach <a href="/tags/Ashley-Giles/post" target="_blank">Ashley Giles</a> said.<br /> <br /> "We've got to be careful with reactions to decisions and Andy was right to speak to Kev. But I think common sense prevailed. It was just a little word."<br /> <br /> Pietersen was adjudged caught behind by umpire S Ravi off <a href="/tags/Ishant-Sharma/post" target="_blank">Ishant Sharma</a> for 17.<br /> <br /> Giles felt the match referee did the right thing and players have to be cautious.<br /> <br /> "Andy was right to speak to Kev," Giles admitted.<br /> <br /> "But I think common sense prevailed. I didn't think it was a reaction, more disappointment from Kev.<br /> <br /> "But we've got to be careful with reactions to decisions.<br /> <br /> It's tough for the umpires here, it's so loud that decision making is tough. We understand that."
