Gill was found to have breached Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an international match.”

The Controversial Catch

Gill was on 18 in the second innings when he edged Scott Boland low to the left of gully. Here Cameron Green dived to take the catch extremely close to the ground. Gill didn’t walk off immediately. The on-field umpires went up to the third umpire without a soft signal as per the new protocol. Third umpire Richard Kettleborough looked at the replay from various angles before ruling it out.

Gill then tweeted a screenshot of a zoomed front-on photo of Green taking the catch and captioned it with a couple of magnifying glass emojis and a facepalm emoji. He also went on to post a story on Instagram with emojis of clapping hands.

“I just felt disappointed. The third umpire should have seen a little more replays, a little more of, you know, how the catch has been held,” Rohit had said. “I think it was three or four times he saw, and he was convinced with it. It’s not about whether it was given out or not out, you need to have a proper and clear information about anything. It’s just not about the catch, it can be about anything,” said Rohit Sharma, in his post-match conference.
