Questions raised on this decision of third-umpire
Questions are being raised on social media about the way Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson got out in this match. Chasing runs in the match, the start of Hyderabad was not good. Kane returned to the pavilion after scoring just 2 runs. In fact, when the famous Krishna bowled the fourth ball of the second over, the ball went straight into the hands of Sanju Samson, taking the edge off Kane’s bat. Sanju missed the catch, but Padikal, standing in the slips, caught him immediately. In such a situation, the ground umpire sent the decision to the third umpire. In the first frame, it seemed that the ball had touched the ground, but the catch was noticed by the third umpire for some time, after which it was declared out. This was the reason that a different debate started on social media about out or not out.
