Talented middle order test batsman of India, Cheteshwar Pujara signed in to play county cricket and recently there arose a controversy regarding the dismissal of Pujara in the match between Yorkshire and Warwickshire. After the dismissal of Pujara, the fans of the home team seemed to be offended and they booed the umpires at the end of the day’s play.

The right handed batsman, hailing from Saurashtra, plays for Yorkshire in the English County. He was looking well settled and was batting on 23 which included four fantastic boundaries. Then it was the speedster from Ireland, Boyd Rankin, who induced an edge from Pujara and was caught by Peter McKay. It was quite clear from the replays that McKay had taken the respective catch on the bounce. And there was no conclusive evidence of a clear catch, yet Pujara was given out.

However, the umpire, Steve Garatt consulted with the square leg umpire, Jeremy Lloyds about the catch but ultimately decided to give Pujara out. Pujara, thus started walking back towards the Headingley dressing room and a section ot the Yorkshire crowd, started booing the Warwickshire players for not showing the exact sporting spirit for the game.

The umpires were not even spared. At the end of the day’s play, the umpires were even booed by the Yorkshire fans as a means of showing their displeasure for the decision.

In an interview after the day’s play, the Warwickshire coach, Dougie Brown claimed that the 20-year old wicket keeper, McKay had collected the ball quite clearly.
