Shubman Gill slapped with a fined

Indian opener Shubman Gill has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for having an outburst. Gill, visibly upset with the umpire’s decision to rule him out in India’s second innings, had taken to Twitter and Instagram to show his annoyance after he was given out caught in the slips by Cameron Green. The additional fine means he will be docked a total of 115 percent of match fee.

“India’s Shubman Gill will face a sanction for appearing to criticise the decision to give him out on the fourth day of the Test, breaching article 2.7 which relates to public criticism or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an international match. The young opener was fined a further 15 percent of his match fee,” the statement read.

During the match, Gill edged a delivery from Scott Boland to the third slip where a diving Green took the catch. But as the Australians celebrated, Gill stood his ground. The decision was referred to the third umpire, Richard Kettleborough, who after examining a few angles declared out, leaving Gill stunned and his captain-cum-opening partner Rohit Sharma screaming in disbelief.

As Gill walked out with a look of disgust on his face, Rohit was even seen asking the umpire about the decision. The call was met with mixed responses – the Indian media blew it up while the Australians seemed content with Kettlborough’s decision.
