India vs West Indies | 'Not Conclusive!' - Rohit Sharma Dismissal Puzzles Twitter

Cricketnext Staff
Just like Rohit Sharma, plenty was not convinced by the third umpire’s decision to give the DRS Review as out

There was controversy early in the game as India took on West Indies at Old Trafford. Kemar Roach’s appeal for a caught behind was turned down after Rohit Sharma was beaten by a good length delivery, with the ball passing through the gap between bat and pad.

West Indies captain Jason Holder went for the review. There was a spike on Ultra Edge as the ball as passed through. The third umpire Michael Gough was quick to take a call and asked the on-field umpire Richard Illingworth to change his decision.

While the West Indies team celebrated, Rohit and his opening partner KL Rahul were not happy with the call, with the former expressing his displeasure while heading back to the dressing room.

Just like Rohit, many were not convinced by the third umpire’s decision.

Just curious, how is that conclusive evidence that the ball hit bat first and not the pad? There's enough doubt there, no? Shouldn't the umpire be sticking with the on-field decision?#INDvWI #CWC19

For once I'm not convinced by that third umpire decision. Rohit Sharma wasn't either.

Rohit Sharma given out caught behind on the review. Looked like ball made contact with pad. #CWC19 #INDvWI

Full sun on the ball, in the picture, on the right frame. Ball has hit the pad not the bat. Technology making the world a clearer picture, NOT!

Rohit has to accept the umpires decision, ctrl+alt+delete!#cwc2019

Clearly touched the pad first but might have hit the bat too. But umpire was so quick to give Rohit out, should have looked in slow motion. Even the on field umpire was confused!!
