IND vs AUS: Controversy has increased after Indian team opener Shubman Gill was given out by the third umpire on the fourth day. Gill himself was also not happy with the decision of umpire Richard Kettleborough. He also vented his anger on social media after the match and posted in jhlah. Whereas the Australian camp seemed quite satisfied with it. Not only this, former Australian veterans also supported the third umpire on this catch. Whereas the former cricketers of India termed this decision as wrong. Often, on such decisions, the benefit of doubt is given to the batsmen by the umpire until there is no concrete evidence. But in this big match, perhaps the third umpire Kettleborough made a mistake here.

Apart from this, Cameron Green, who himself caught the catch, has also given a statement on this matter. Green's statement also came to the fore after the fourth day's play. When asked about the catch while talking to the media, he said that, at that time I definitely felt that I had caught the catch. Also I felt it was a clean catch. After I took the catch, I tossed the ball in the air and I was confident. Then we left the decision to the third umpire. Later he agreed to it and the decision came in our favor. Cameron Green took a stunning catch of Ajinkya Rahane in the first innings as well and prevented him from scoring a century.

Gill vented his anger

Shubman Gill also looked completely unhappy with the umpire's decision. It was clearly visible while leaving the field. Along with this, he posted a story on Instagram, in which he shared a photo of Green's catch with an emoji of clapping. Not only this, he also posted this photo on Twitter expressing his disappointment. On this catch of Gill, former India batsman Virender Sehwag also took a dig at the umpire and shared a blindfold meme. He clearly said that until there is no conclusive evidence, the umpire gives the benefit of doubt to the batsman. While Ponting, Langer and Hayden all supported the umpire.

Shubman Gill could not do anything special in this innings as well. In the first innings, he scored 13 off 15 balls and got off to a good start. In that innings, he made a mistake in judging Boland's ball and left it. The ball went straight to the wicket. In this innings also Boland took his wicket which was disputed. Actually Green caught the catch while diving to his left. When it was zoomed in slow motion, it was clearly known that the ball was touching the grass between the two fingers. But the third umpire must have seen it repeatedly but did not take the zoom angle even once. This is the reason that India's score was 164 for 3 by the end of the fourth day. Australia needs 7 wickets to win on the last day, then Team India can create history by scoring 280 more runs.
