The BCCI looks unhappy with Gill’s social media act and sent an indirect message to him as the debate continues.
The focus of Day 4 and boost to the 5th Day of the WTC Final still remained the controversial catch by Cameron Green, which led to the dismissal of Shubman Gill, despite the fact that India is still very much alive in the contest with a well-set Virat Kohli still unbeaten and the team in sight of a historic chase at The Oval for the World Test Championship Title. The India opener later expressed his disappointment by targeting the umpires over the dismissal in a post that broke the internet. But BCCI looks rather unhappy and sent an indirect message to Shubman as the debate continues.
The anger on social media platforms continues, with world cricket divided on the dismissal. The president of the BCCI, Rajeev Shukla, gave his take in an interaction with a news agency. In an indirect message to Gill, he said, “We should not create a dispute over this. We should accept the decision of the third umpire.”
Meanwhile, Shukla remains optimistic that India can make history on Day 5 of the Test, as the team needs 280 runs to win with seven wickets in hand.
Shukla said, “Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli are batting well, and if everyone plays safe, we can chase down the target as the target is not that big.”
