Shraddha Kapoor Took A Hilarious Dig At The Third-Umpire: Indian opener Shubman Gill’s controversial dismissal in the second innings became one of the most talked about points of the recently-concluded World Test Championship final against Australia.
On Day 4, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma alongwith Shubman Gill gave team India a solid start, while chasing a mammoth target of 444 runs set by the Australian cricket team. However, soon Scott Boland produced a sensational delivery which induced an outside edge from the young batter, which went towards Cameron Green.
Green made a brilliant diving effort to his left and the momentum carried him to the ground where his fingers touched the ground. The catch sparked off a controversy as TV replays seemed to suggest that it had been grassed but the third umpire ruled the decision in favor of Australia.

Rohit Sharma On Shubman Gill’s Controversial Catch:
Later, after the match, during the press conference, Indian captain Rohit Sharma addressed the controversy and took a dig t the umpire for not utilizing the technology to the full extent.
“I just felt disappointed. Third umpire should have seen a little more replays, a little more on how the catch is been held. I think three or four times he saw, and he was convinced with it,”
“We have more cameras in IPL’ says Rohit
“It’s not about whether it was given out or not-out, you need to have a proper and clear information about anything. It’s not about the catch, so that is something I was little disappointed with. The decision was made quite quickly, when a catch like that is being taken you need to be more than 100 percent sure. It’s final, we were at that important stage of the game as well, so that was a little bit disappointing and more camera angles should have been shown. There were only one or two camera angles that were shown,”
