There was a controversial moment in the third Test of Cricbuzz Cup 2015, when the third umpire was referred to check the no-ball and he ruled the decision in favour of Ishant Sharma, when there was very little evidence that his feet was behind the line. It was a crucial moment in the match as India gained the momentum with Upul Tharanga’s dismissal and took 4 more Sri Lankan wickets.
VIDEO: The controversial moment from the third Test
Ishant Sharma bowled a brilliant seam-up delivery and Upul Tharanga, who was making a comeback after a long gap, edged it straight to the second slip, where KL Rahul took a brilliant low catch. The on-field umpire wasn’t sure about the popping crease and the decision was referred to the third umpire. Ishant Sharma’s foot was very close to the crease but there was no evident that showed his foot was behind the line.
