Neil Wagner and Essex teammates show sportsmanship in withdrawing run-out appeal
Black Caps fast bowler Neil Wagner has been at the forefront of good sportsmanship in English county cricket.
Wagner was bowling for Essex against Middlesex at Lord's when batsmen John Simpson and Stevie Eskinazi attempted a risky single.
Wagner chased the ball to midoff, colliding heavily with Simpson, who was just starting out on the run.
Simpson was run out, but the Essex team withdrew their appeal, with Wagner apparently a key figure in the decision.
The incident happened on the third day of the four-day match, with Essex 19-0 at stumps, chasing 452 to win.
