A controversial decision by third umpire during World Test Championship final has sparked a raging debate on the internet. India’s opener Shubman Gill was dismissed on 18, when he edged a Scott Boland delivery towards Cameron Green. The on-field umpires referred the decision to the third umpire, Richard Kettleborough, who ruled in favour of the baggy greens.
