Cameron Green catch angers India fans after Shabman Gill wicket

Indian cricket fans chant ‘cheat, cheat, cheat’ as Shabman Gill is dismissed in controversial fashion with many claiming Cameron Green’s stunning catch hit the ground first

Indian cricket fans are up in arms after Shabman Gill lost his wicket in controversial fashion on Saturday.

Gill and Rohit Sharma made a fast start to the second innings as India chased a mammoth target of 444 runs set by Australia in the World Test Championship final at the Oval.

Gill scored 18 off 19 balls before edging a Scott Boland delivery towards Cameron Green, who leapt to his left to catch the ball.

The big all-rounder and his teammates wildly celebratred what they thought was a stunning catch but Gill stood his ground as the on-field umpires sent the incident upstairs for further review.

After extensive looks at the replays, which showed that the ball may have touched the ground, the third umpire deemed that Green got all of his hand on the ball and it did not touch the turf, sending Gill packing.

Loud boos rang out around the Oval as the large swathes of India fans disagreed with the decision, with Mail Sport’s Lawrence Booth reporting that some of the crowd were heard shouting: ‘Cheat, cheat, cheat’.

And, similarly, India fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, with a huge number describing Australia as ‘cheaters’.

‘That’s not out ! Umpiring been biased this test for Aus,’ one fan said.
