Fox Cricket brutally trolled for questioning Rahul’s catch
Australian sports channel, Fox Sports trolled madly by the fans in twitter as the broadcasters made a question on the last catch taken by Rahul in Adelaide.
India clinched a memorable win in Adelaide by beating Australia by 31 runs on the final day. Even though Australia lost the game, they put a tough fight against India with the batting contributions from lower-order batsmen and tail-enders.
Indian bowlers had to sweat out more for the last four wickets of the hosts. Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood was the last one to dismiss to ensure the Indian win in Adelaide. The duo stood for 66 balls to deny the last wicket for India.
Finally, Ravichandran Ashwin did the thing for India by dismissing Josh Hazlewood. The batsman got greedy to play a fancy drive and was completely defeated by the turn. The ball took the edge of his bat and went straight towards the second slip where Rahul was standing and he took a low catch.
As soon as the catch was taken, Indian players went for the celebrations and umpire Nigel Llong confirmed that was the end of the dramas in Adelaide. At that time, Australia had their quota of reviews in the bag but the on-field batsmen didn’t raise any question on the dismissal.
But after the end of the match, the official broadcaster Fox Cricket posted a post in their official twitter handle as questioning the catch taken by KL Rahul. Fans reacted to the controversy brutally and trolled the broadcasters for raising an unwanted controversy regarding the game.
Here is the tweet from Fox Cricket:
