Huw Bevan, the production head of the ICC's rights partner, reminded the callers of "the importance of maintaining the highest standards and uphold the game's best values and spirit while covering the tournament".
"Inherently in live television, there are occasions when on-field decisions cause reason for discussion or debate, but as ICC TV host broadcasters, our (Sunset & Vine) duty is not to judge or highlight mistakes".
During the match, Chris Gayle was given out lbw thrice - two of them which he successfully reviewed.
The controversy erupted after umpire Chris Gaffaney failed to spot a big no-ball from Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc to West Indies batsman Chris Gayle at Trent Bridge last week.
It is understood that before the World Cup began, there was a meeting between the senior production team and commentary personnel to discuss the need to avoid making negative remarks. It's critical for us that we should never amplify umpires' mistakes by giving airtime to those incidents nor show the umpires in bad light.
"It's a strong reminder to everybody involved to uphold the strongest of standards in our coverage".
In his reply, Holder was fuming and even offered to quit whole drawing standards of umpiring in Federation Internationale de Football Association events.
In a terse reply Holding questioned why he was the only commentator included on the email chain and added: "If those umpires yesterday were Federation Internationale de Football Association officials, they would have been told to pack their bags and head home".
After Bangladesh expressed their displeasure over the lack of reserve days in the International Cricket CouncilWorld Cup following a tournament-record third abandonment in the space of five days, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson has explained why it is practically hard to reserve days for every single match of the mega event.
Holding added: "I am sorry, but I am not going to be part of that". As a former cricketer, I think cricket should be held to a higher standard.
He suggested if the "censorship" continued then he would consider leaving the tournament "because I don't agree with what is being suggested here and happy not being part of it".
The email arrived the day after Holding had described the umpiring during the game between Australia and West Indies as "atrocious", prompting him to ask whether he was needed the following day for the England-Bangladesh game in Cardiff.
The situation was resolved after a further email reassured commentators they would not be censored.
