The second match of the prestigious Ashes Test series is being played at Lord’s ground in London. By the end of the fourth day of play, the visiting Australia team had strengthened their grip on the match. While defending the 371 runs given to England for victory, Australia has dismissed four of England’s batsmen for 114 runs. Australia have a good chance to win on the final day. Meanwhile, a controversial incident took place on the fourth day of the match.
With just two overs to go in the day’s play, Australia all-rounder Cameron Greene was bowling. Ben Duckett, the batsman, took a strange shot off his ball. At that time, Mitchell Starc, who was standing at fine leg, completed the catch by hitting a tune. At first sight the umpire dismissed the batsman, declaring that the catch had been taken correctly. However, after Duckett appealed to the third umpire, the third umpire adjudged him not out.
What do we think of this one?

In the replay, Starc seems to have done the catch correctly. However, after standing up, it is seen that the ball hit the ground. However, many felt that the catch was justified. So now it seems that a new controversy has arisen.
A similar catch of India’s Shubman Gill was caught by Green in the final of the World Test Championship which concluded a few days ago. Then in the same match, a catch by Australia’s Steve Smith was also suspicious. All these cases are now criticizing the ICC.
