‘You can’t do that’: Ponting and Langer fume over Shubman Gill’s tweet over controversial catch

New Delhi. Australia defeated India by 209 runs to capture the World Test Championship trophy. On the fourth day in the match, there was a situation of controversy when Shubman Gill was given out on the catch of Cameron Green off the ball of Scott Boland. Although the replays felt that the ball had touched the ground while catching the catch. When the field umpire took the support of the third umpire, after watching it from different angles, TV umpire Richard Catelbro gave Gill out. The Indian camp was unhappy with this decision.

The matter caught fire when Shubman Gill tweeted on this issue during the match itself. Posting the photo of this catch in the tweet, an emoji of head banging with a magnifier was put. Australia’s veteran cricketers Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer have expressed their displeasure over Gill’s tweet.

Could face fine or suspension: Ponting
‘Shubman Gill may face fine or even suspension for pointing finger at third umpire’s decision’, Ponting said on Cricket7 . The whole world was going to do this for him but he didn’t need to do anything like that.” Former Australia team coach and batsman Justin Langer has also expressed similar views.

Social media a big challenge today: Langer
Fox Cricket quoted Langer as saying, “Gill’s tweet was irresponsible to an extent and reflects his inexperience. One of the big challenges for modern-day cricketers now is that social media is rampant. The world we are living in at present is dominated by social media. I believe Gill’s tweet is irresponsible to an extent and reflects his inexperience.
