England All-rounder Ben Stokes has stirred another controversy by claiming a catch of Indian batsman Shubhman Gill during the opening day of the Third Test at the newly reconstructed Narendra Modi Stadium on Wednesday.
Stokes often regarded as one of the best all-rounders in the gentleman’s game across all formats made a strong appeal for a catch of opener Shubhman Gill during 1st innings in the ongoing Pink- ball Test Match.
Stokes who was standing at second slip when Stuart Broad found the outside edge of India’s opener Shubhman Gill’s bat appeared confident of claiming the low catch in the second over of the Indian Innings in the second session of the day-night Test.
The onfield umpires too ruled it in England and Stokes’s favor while sending it upstairs with the soft signal ‘out’
Although the third umpire made a quick decision just after looking at one angle and deciding that Stokes did not have anything beneath the ball.It later turned out to be the correct decision.
Shubhman Gill was adjudged not out by the third umpire which bemused stokes who started shaking his head with a smirk on his face.
Stokes’s reaction despite the right decision did not go down well with the cricket fans as they took social media to vent out their anger.
