“I was just disappointed. I mean the third umpire should have looked at the replay a little more, a little more, you know, how the catch was held,” Rohit said after India’s 209-run defeat on Sunday. “I think he had seen it three or four times, and he was convinced by it. It’s not about whether it was given out or not, you have to have a proper and clear idea about anything. It’s “It’s not just about the catch. It can be about anything.”
“That was something I was a little disappointed with – the decision was taken very quickly,” Rohit said. “When a catch like that is taken, you need to be more than 100% confident because it is the final and we were at that crucial stage of the game as well. So it was a bit disappointing for me.”
Replays on the broadcast seemed to show that some of the action had gone down between frames, with Green catching the ball under his fingers as it fell to the turf, and then throwing it up in celebration. The big question at that time was whether the ball touched the ground when his hand hit the turf.
Rohit further said, “More camera angles should have been shown.” “Only one or two camera angles were shown. We have got more angles in the IPL. We have got 10 different angles in the IPL. I don’t know why there was no ultra motion in such a world event.” What was seen or any kind of zoomed image was seen. That’s what I was a little disappointed with.”
“Passionate fans,” Cummins said. “But I thought it was a fair catch. Green was absolutely screaming and obviously we’re just players, we’re off the field so we leave it in the hands of the umpire and personally, probably the world The best umpire, he knows the rule books, he’s looked at every angle. I’d probably support his decision more than the emotional, passionate fans who are watching on the big screen from 100 meters away.”
