In the World Test Championship match against Australia. Shubman Gill was fined 15% of his match fee for challenging the TV umpire’s decision. For sustaining a slow over-rate, India has been penalised their entire match fee. Australia has had 80% of their fees deducted.

India was chasing 444 when Shubman Gill, who was on 18, edged Scott Boland low to the left of the gully, where Cameron Green dove to grab the catch very nearly on the ground. As per the new protocol, the on-field umpires approached the third umpire without giving a soft signal when Gill didn’t immediately leave. Third umpire Richard Kettleborough looked at the video from several angles before ruling it out.

Gill later shared on Twitter a screenshot of a close-up photo of Green making the grab along with several face-palm and magnifying-glass emojis. He then shared a story on Instagram with clapping hands.

What ICC said :

The ICC said that he had broken Article 2.7 by making “inappropriate remarks or public criticism in relation to an incident occurring in an international match.
Gill agreed to the punishment, thus there was no need for a formal hearing.
India was determined to be five overs short of the objective in terms of slow over-rate. whereas Australia was determined to be four overs short after taking time allowances into account.

India suffered a 209-run defeat in their second straight WTC final after losing seven wickets on the fifth morning. Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, too expressed his unhappiness with the procedure used to exclude Gill during the post-game press conference on Sunday.


Rohit’s Statement:

“I simply felt let down. Rohit had stated, “I mean, the third umpire should have viewed a little more replays. You know, a bit more of how the catch has been held. It doesn’t matter if it was spread or not. what counts is that you have proper knowledge about everything. I think he viewed it three or four times before he was convinced by it. The catch just isn’t relevant; the topic might be anything.
