The Men in Blue need a record chase in the history of Test cricket to clinch the WTC title as the mighty Australians stand in their way. India lost their opening wicket in controversial fashion as Shubman Gill was dismissed by Cameron Green for a stunner at gully.

Green’s effort was ruled in his favor as the third umpire gave Gill out despite the ball appearing to be suspected of touching the ground. Both Gill and Rohit were left shocked and now Gill has reacted to the incident on social media. Posting a picture of Green’s effort, Gill took a dig at the decision to give him out in a controversial position. He used two emoji. Gill used a magnifying emoji, perhaps taking a dig at the decision and asking the umpires to zoom in on the catching point, and a face palm emoji.

Here’s the tweet:

Green’s effort was closely watched by the third umpire after the on-field umpires had sent the decision up. However, after looking at the catch from different angles, the third umpire declared Gill out. This sparked a debate on social media.

Several fans took to Twitter to criticize the decision to drop Gill. Notably, no soft signal was used in the dismissal as the ICC has abolished the rule. The on-field umpires refer the incident up to the third umpire to decide.

Rohit Sharma’s India displayed yet another act of survival Virat Kohli And Ajinkya Rahane Led his team’s comeback chase in the World Test Championship final.
