Pat Cummins’ “Best Umpire” Remark Regarding the Controversial Shubman Gill Catch


The captain of Australia, Pat Cummins, disagreed with Rohit Sharma’s assessment of third umpire Richard Kettleborough.

Pat Cummins, the captain of Australia, disagreed with Rohit Sharma’s assessment of third umpire Richard Kettleborough, who rendered the contentious decision to dismiss India opener Shubman Gill during the second innings of the World Test Championship final. Rohit said that the third umpire made the decision too hastily and ought to have seen more replays before making it after India lost the game. He had even criticised the WTC organisers for using fewer camera angles during such a crucial event.

The edge of India’s opener’s bat was discovered by pacer Scott Boland, and Cameron Green completed the catch by diving to his left in his favoured gully position. The third umpire, TV umpire Kettleborough, made the judgement and ruled Gill out.

Cummins supported Kettleborough’s judgement, calling him “probably the best umpire in the world,” and said Cameron Green’s catch was a fair one.

“I considered that to be a fair capture. Green was a screaming machine, and we’re just players, of course. We trust the umpire because we are on the pitch; in my opinion, he is the best umpire in the world since he is familiar with all the rules and has seen every viewpoint. In the post-game news conference, Cummins stated, “I’d probably support his choice more so than impassioned, ardent supporters who are watching on a large screen from 100 metres away.

Rohit had earlier stated, “I just felt let down with – not enough. The third umpire ought to have seen a few more replays and more of, say, how the catch was held. I believe he viewed it three or four times before becoming persuaded. It doesn’t matter if it was distributed or not; you need to have accurate knowledge about everything. It might be about anything; it’s simply not about the catch. I was a little upset with how swiftly the choice was made, to be honest.

“You need to be more than 100% certain when a catch like that is made since it’s a final and we were also in that crucial part of the game. Therefore, that left me feeling a little let down. Also, additional camera views need to have been displayed. Only one or two camera perspectives were displayed. In IPL, we have more angles. In IPL, there are ten distinct angles. I’m not sure why there wasn’t any extreme motion or magnified imagery at a major world event like this. I felt a little let down by that, he continued.

After losing to New Zealand in the first WTC finals in 2021, this was India’s second defeat in as many championships.
