Ben Stokes reflects on 'bizarre' reprieve v West Indies

2:29                                            Ian Ward catches up with Ben Stokes after he and Jos Buttler put on England's highest partnership of the series

2:29 Ian Ward catches up with Ben Stokes after he and Jos Buttler put on England's highest partnership of the series

The all-rounder was seemingly dismissed by Alzarri Joseph in the 70th over of Day 1 of the Test when he pulled a short ball straight back to the bowler. He had been replaced on the field by England's No. 7 Jonny Bairstow when the onfield umpire, Rod Tucker signalled the no-ball, following confirmation from Chris Gaffaney in the third umpire's chair.

England has already lost the series 2-0, but finally dug in against a bowling attack minus captain Jason Holder, who has been banned from the test for his team's slow over-rate in the three-day second test in Antigua. However, in April 2017, the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) introduced Law 31.7 which deals with the possibility of batsmen "leaving the wicket under a misapprehension".

The new law reads: "An umpire shall intervene if satisfied that a batsman, not having been given out, has left the wicket under a misapprehension of being out".

The on-field umpire adjudged Burns not out, but a West Indies review showed the ball would have hit the middle stump and the decision was overturned.

Of the incident, he said: 'In global cricket you shouldn't be walking off, getting into the changing rooms, and then back out there two minutes later.

Snowfall hit the Metro Vancouver region quickly and swiftly on Sunday afternoon, with up to 10 centimetres expected. Highway 19 from Black Creek to Nanoose Bay appears to be rapidly gathering snow, along with the Old Island Highway.

"I've never been in the changing room and called out to bat again, that is a first for me and it's probably something that they need to get control of", he said.

"Thank God for technology", said Stokes at the close of play.

Ben Stokes thanked God for technology in cricket after a weird reprieve in St Lucia that came despite his having already returned to the pavilion.

"I tried to get myself back in that same frame of mind I was when me and Jos were going well out there", he added. Stokes said: "It's a first for me and something that needs to be taken control of - I don't think in global cricket you should be walking off into the changing rooms then two minutes later back out there". That can be a catalyst for how I want to play. I said to myself not to look at it as a big opportunity, just try to let it go and make sure I was not out at the end of the day'. "I think I was a bit stuck over the last couple of months, but watching the video this morning did me the world of good".
