Argument, selection reversed, walk out? What passed off between Shubman Gill, the umpire and Delhi fielders in Ranji Trophy

Rising celebrity of Indian cricket Shubman Gill was once embroiled in a controversy when he received his dismissal overturned after arguing with the on-field umpire for the duration of Punjab’s Ranji Trophy come across towards Delhi on Friday, leading to stoppage of play for round 10 minutes.

The present day white-ball captain of the India A group refused to depart the crease after he used to be adjudged caught-behind via slow medium bowler Subodh Bhati. An argument with the umpire followed and the batsman used to be reinstated after a dialogue between the on-field officials.

Gill was once batting on 10 then. Gill didn’t last long as he edged one off Simarjeet Singh to Anuj Rawat for 23 off 41 balls with the team’s score on 60.

“The straight umpire (Mohammed Rafi) had adjudged Shubman caught behind and the batsman then walked up to the umpire and was once considered having an argument asking him to reverse his decision. The straight umpire then consulted the square-leg umpire (Paschim Pathak) and reversed his decision,” Delhi group manager Vivek Khurana advised PTI.

Asked if there was once any plan for a walk-out by using the journeying side, Khurana in reality denied any such move.

“Our skipper (Nitish) Rana just requested the umpires as to why they overturned the initial decision. We never walked out. The healthy referee (Ranganathan) got here in and play resumed as usual,” Khurana added.

DDCA familiar secretary Vinod Tihara said: “The match used to be halted for seven to eight minutes. There was nothing untoward. Our boys felt that Gill was once out and that’s why they requested the umpires why the choice was once reversed.”
