New Delhi. Not only did the Indian cricket team lose the World Test Championship, it was also fined. In fact, due to the slow over rate, the ICC Team India 100% match fee has been deducted. In addition to the match fee, Shubman Gill has also been fined an additional 15 percent because he questioned the umpire’s decision. After this decision of ICC, Indian cricket fans got angry and they started trolling him. The fans demanded the ICC to fine not only the players but also the umpires.
Cricket fans were very angry with the umpiring in the final of the World Test Championship. The resentment was over the decision against Shubman Gill, who was given out caught in the second innings. His catch went in the slip, the ball was caught by Cameron Green. The replay did not show that the catch was caught cleanly but third umpire Richard Kettlebrough gave Gill out. Gill looked angry with this decision and put a post on social media against this decision.
🚨 JUST IN: India, Australia and star opener sanctioned by the ICC.

Fans gave amazing advice to ICC
Fans advised the ICC to fine umpire Richard Kettlebrough. Some fans even advised him to get this umpire’s eyes treated. Such reactions are coming because the fans are disappointed with the umpiring. By the way, Rohit Sharma also looked upset with this decision of the umpire.
Richard Kettelborough should also be fined 2 weeks of his wages for making such a blunder in the final of such a prestigious ICC tournament.

Rohit Sharma expressed displeasure over Gill’s wicket
Rohit Sharma also expressed disappointment on the wicket of Shubman Gill. He said that more camera angles should be seen on Gill’s wicket. Rohit expressed surprise that there is a lack of camera angles in a big tournament like the ICC. Well, there has been a controversy over the wicket of Shubman Gill, but it is clear that India played bad cricket in the World Test Championship.
Even though there was a dispute over Gill’s wicket, other batsmen lost their wickets by playing bad shots. In the second innings, Team India surrendered before lunch on the fifth day. Veterans like Virat Kohli, Rahane lost their wickets carelessly. Jadeja did the same. As a result, Australia won the World Test Championship and India got defeated.
