Tweeting a front-on angle photo of cameron green Taking the catch to his left in the street, Gill captioned it with two magnifying glass emojis followed by a face palm emoji. That sentiment was echoed somewhat Mohammed Shami Later, who suggested that more rigor was required in decision making on the occasion of this final.
Gill was on 18 when India began the chase of 444 when he edged Scott Boland low to the left of the green. Green – who said he thought the catch was clean – celebrated immediately but Gill did not follow through immediately. Field umpire went to TV umpire Richard Kettleborough, A new protocol has now been implemented without giving soft signals. The requirement for a soft signal in these types of decisions was recently abolished by the ICC’s Cricket Committee and this was the first occasion when the protocol was required.

After watching multiple replays from different angles and zooming in, Kettleborough called the decision out, much to the disappointment of Gill and his teammate, captain Rohit Sharma, as well as the thousands of Indian fans present on the ground. The entire process took less than three minutes.

Shami later said, “Yes, definitely, more time could have been taken (to verify whether it was a clean catch) because it is the World Test Championship final and not just a normal match.” “You could have investigated more and zoomed in more. But that’s OK, it’s part of the game.” It was a feeling – that it is part of the game – which Shami would reiterate later.

It was Green’s second excellent catch in Tests, after his brilliant innings of stretching to his right down gully to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane in the first innings, although he had also given up an easy chance earlier in the game. “At the time I definitely thought I had caught it,” Green said of Gill’s catch. “I think in the heat of the moment I thought it was clean. It was left to the third umpire and he agreed.”

Australian wicketkeeper alex careyOne of the players close to the catch also thought the right decision had been taken. “I felt good from where I was,” Carey said on the BBC’s Test Match Special. “I thought he nailed it fairly. He was very happy with it, so yes, the right decision was made.”

Green faced applause from a large and loud crowd of India supporters throughout the day, as well as chants of “cheat” every time he joined the action. However, this did not deter him. “Obviously, the Indian crowd is so emotional and obviously one of their favorite guys, Shubman Gill, got out and I think they were all keen to see it, so it is what it is and we move on,” Green said. Are.”

Only time will tell whether Gill will face any consequences for his tweet. Section 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct clearly states that social media posts fall under the jurisdiction of violations of the Code.
