Controversy: Shubman argues with the referee after being given out, the match against Delhi stopped for 10 minutes

Mohali 3 Jan () Indian cricket star Shubman Gill was involved in a controversy when he got his dismissal overturned after arguing with the referee on the ground during the Ranji Trophy match against Delhi on Friday, which stops the game for about 10 minutes.

The current white-ball captain of the India A team refused to leave the crease after the middle bowler Subodh Bhati declared him trapped. A discussion with the referee followed and the batter was reinstated after an argument between the officers in the field.

Gill was hitting 10 then. Gill did not last long, since he beat one of Simarjeet Singh to Anuj Rawat by 23 of 41 balls with the team's score at 60.

The straight referee (Mohammed Rafi) had tried Shubman trapped behind and the batter then approached the referee and was seen arguing asking him to revoke his decision. The straight referee then consulted the square-legged referee (Paschim Pathak) and reversed his decision, said Delhi team manager Vivek Khurana.

When asked if there was any plan for a withdrawal from the visiting side, Khurana denied absolutely any such movement.

Our vice captain (Nitish) Rana only asked the referees why they reversed the initial decision. We never go out The match referee (Ranganathan) entered and the game resumed as usual, Khurana added. The secretary general of DDCA, Vinod Tihara, said: The party stopped for seven or eight minutes. There was nothing wrong. Our boys felt that Gill was out and that's why they asked the referees why the decision was reversed. KHS PM PM KHS KHS
