Ricky Ponting said a wonderful thing on the wicket of Shubman Gill! (PC-AFP)
New Delhi. in the final of the World Test Championship Shubman Gill Controversy over giving out is not taking its name. Gill’s catch was caught by Cameron Green in the slip and it was clear in the replay that Shubman’s catch was not caught completely cleanly. Meaning some part of the ball was on the ground but despite this Shubman was given out. Now former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has spoken on this controversy. Ponting also believes that the ball probably touched the ground but he also gave the reason why Shubman was given out despite this?
On the wicket of Shubman Gill, Ricky Ponting said that when he saw this wicket live, he felt that Green had taken the catch but when the replay came, he too was not completely sure about the wicket. At the same time, Ponting said that he felt that the ball had touched the ground, but the umpire saw whether the ball was under the fielder’s control before touching the ground. The umpire felt that the ball was under the control of the fielder and hence the batsman was given out.

Ricky Ponting is funny
Ricky Ponting’s point seems a bit strange because according to the rules if any part of the ball touches the ground then that catch will be illegal. Also, if it is not known in the replay whether the ball has hit the ground or not, then the decision goes in favor of the batsman. Because the benefit of doubt is always given to the batsman. But something else happened in Shubman Gill’s case and that is the reason why there was sloganeering against Australian all-rounder Cameron Green and umpire Richard Kettlebrough is also being trolled.
Cameron Green also reacted to the catch
By the way, Cameron Green has also reacted to the catch of Shubman Gill. According to Green, when he took the catch, he did not feel from anywhere that the ball had made contact with the ground. That’s why according to him Gill was out. Well Shubman Gill was given out but still Australia’s victory cannot be considered certain.
Team India still has a chance to win. There is a set pair of Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane at the crease. India has scored 164 runs in 40 overs and needs 280 runs for a historic win. Means Team India has a chance. It is definitely difficult but in the last two years, Team India has achieved such miraculous victories. It is to be seen who wins the match on the fifth day?
