2nd Test Australia vs India Perth: Former Australian skipper Michael Clarke claimed that the catch taken by Peter Handscomb to dismiss India captain Virat Kohli was clean and that got the social sphere buzzing as they felt, it was not clear if the catch was cleanly taken. Fans on social media reminded Michael Clarke of the controversial catch he took of Sourav Ganguly a decade back. Replays showed that Clarke’s catch was not legit as it had touched the ground, but because the cricketer had claimed it, it was not referred to and Ganguly had to make the long walk back. It was a similar incident where a couple angles showed it was clearly taken and one angle made it a little dodgy.
Here is the controversial dismissal:
Here is how he got trolled:
Earlier on Day 3, Kohli brought up his 25th Test century. Kohli (127) became the fastest Indian to register 25 Test centuries, he surpassed Sachin Tendulkar (130), Sunil Gavaskar (138). Kohli also went past Sachin Tendulkar for the highest Test average in SENA countries.
