“I think most of those catches are…” Glenn McGrath Expressed His Thoughts On Shubman Gill’s Dismissal In WTC Final

Glenn McGrath, the legendary Australian pacer, has shared his opinion on the controversial dismissal of Shubman Gill during the World Test Championship (WTC) Final between India and Australia. The catch taken by Cameron Green sparked a heated debate and significantly impacted the match’s outcome. Despite the controversy, McGrath expressed his satisfaction with the final decision and discussed the importance of maintaining consistency in such situations.

During India’s chase of the 444-run target, Shubman Gill’s dismissal proved to be a turning point. On the first ball of the seventh over, Gill edged Scott Bolland’s delivery to the slip, where Cameron Green took a remarkable one-handed catch. The decision was referred to the third umpire, who eventually ruled Gill out after reviewing different angles. However, some fans believed that the ball had touched the ground when Green fell while taking the catch.

Glenn McGrath expressed his contentment with the final decision and shared his view on similar catch situations. He stated that he often sees ways to give such catches not out, but he prefers the decision to be given in favor of the fielding team.

Regardless of whether an Australian or Indian player took the catch, McGrath affirmed that he would have been satisfied with the outcome. His perspective reflects the importance of maintaining consistency and making unbiased decisions.

“I think most of those catches are out. We find ways to give it not out, which I like to go the other way. So, I was happy with it. And if it was India taking that catch, I would have been happy too. I’m not just saying from an Australian perspective but the way it goes,” McGrath told PTI.

McGrath also highlighted the significance of Australia’s victory in the WTC Final as a confidence booster for the upcoming Ashes series. He believes that the win provided the Australian team, led by Pat Cummins, with valuable momentum and prepared them well to face the challenges of the Ashes campaign. McGrath emphasized that the experience gained in the WTC Final and the exposure to the playing conditions will put Australia in a favorable position as they begin their Ashes journey.
