The controversial dismissal of Shubman Gill on Day 4 of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and Australia became the biggest talking point ahead of the play’s resumption on Day 5. With India still needing 280 runs to win, Gill’s dismissal on Saturday after Cameron Green completed his catch at first slip has enraged Indian fans.
Green himself broke his silence and said that he felt the dismissal was justified, however, fans brutally trolled the Australian all-rounder and posted many vile comments on pictures of the young cricketer.
The dismissal of Gill in India’s second inning during the 8th over on Scott Bolland’s delivery divided the cricketing fraternity, with many legends slamming third umpire Richard Kettleborough for a dubious call on Green’s catch as the ball appeared to be in contact with the grass.
