Srinagar: The Cricket Greats and Fans have questioned the controversial decision by a third umpire in the ongoing second Test between Pakistan and England in Multan.

Some of the hugh profile names in World Cricket have raised question on controversial decision over Saud Shakeel during the ongoing Test.

Marais Erasmus and Aleem Dar are the on-field umpires while Joel Wilson is the third umpire.

In the last over before lunch, Saud Shakeel, batting on 94, knicked the ball to the keeper Ollie Pope who dived low to his right and gobbles it up. Aleem signaled out as a soft signal. Wilson took time to confirm his decision and ultimately gave out.

The videos showed that some part of the ball was touching the grass. The Cricket fraternity are furious over the controversial decision and thinks that it must have been given, not out.

“I’m not sure what Joel Wilson saw in that but I feel that the ball was clearly touching the ground. There was nothing underneath it,” Waqar Younis during the commentary.

“You could argue that the gloves were on the ball, not necessarily under the ball, and a bit of the ball was touching the grass,” Mike Atherton said.

Michael Vaughan also agreed that some part of the ball was on the ground.
