Australia’s star batsman Adam Voges gets involved in a controversy during the ongoing 2nd Test between New Zealand and Australia at Christchurch.

The incident happened on day 1 when Australia were fielding. Just before tea, Adam Voges took an important catch at the cover of New Zealand set batsman Corey Anderson, who got out for 72 runs. Just before on over at tea, on day 1, Anderson charged a wide delivery of Australian bowler Nathan Lyon which went to the Australian fielder Adam Voges’ hands.

A replay of that dismissal showed that Voges was wearing a fabric on his hand. A fabric looked like a pair of surgical gloves.

After noticing that incident, a protest was run by Kiwi and other fans through the social media. As per their opinions, it was a cheating.

According to the MCC’s law 41.1, “No fielder other than the wicket-keeper shall be permitted to wear gloves or external leg guards. In addition, protection for the hand or fingers may be worn only with the consent of the umpires.”

And in addition to breaking the above law, MCC’s law 41.2 claimed that umpire should award 5 penalty runs to the batting side immediately after calling that delivery as a dead ball. And it means that the batsman should not get out on that ball. But Anderson was given out and no penalty runs were awarded.

But the recent report is claiming that Voges was not wearing gloves at all. As per report, Voges had strapping tape on his right wrist after taking permission for that.
