Question pertaining to sport:

in cricket if the umpire does not signal the batsman out, you are allowed to stand your ground and not walk off the field – this is a rule of cricket.

Now if the batsman snicks the ball and the wicket keeper catches it(the rule states this action as out), the umpire then calls not out(it happens as sometimes the umpires cannot pick up the snick), but the batsman knows he nicked the ball but does not walk, from an islamic perspective has the batsmans action constituted a sin or how would you describe his conduct in the light of Sharia?

or because the laws allow him to stay and stand his ground if he has not being given out, can he stay and bat from an islamic standpoint? what should we do in these situations?

Firstly this sport is waste of time, money and energy - having no real valuable benefit.

The rule will apply.
