New Delhi: Even though the Indian team’s wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has not been active in international cricket since the T20 World Cup, he is enjoying the live action happening on the field at home. Karthik has a keen eye not only on India’s matches but also on the ongoing Test series between Pakistan and England. This is the reason why Karthik expressed displeasure over the decision to give out to Pakistani batsman Saud Shakeel. Through social media, he objected to the soft signal in cricket.

never quite understood that ???#ENGvsPAK

When Saud Shakeel was out, the match was becoming very exciting. The England team had given Pakistan a target of 355 runs to win. When Shakeel was out, Pakistan’s team scored 291 runs. He needed just 64 runs to win. Pakistan lost its seventh wicket in the form of Shakeel. This left-handed batsman of Pakistan was playing after scoring 94 runs at that time. After the wicket of Shakeel, who came to play at number 4, the last hope of the host country to win the match also ended. He had to face defeat by 26 runs in this match.

The soft signal turned the match

Mark Wood was on the bowling attack on the fourth day of the match. Pakistan’s six wickets had fallen. Then Shakeel tried to hit a pull shot on Wood’s ball but the ball took a heavy edge of the bat and went back towards the leg side and into the gloves of the wicketkeeper. It was a very close affair. It was not clear whether the ball had hit the ground before hitting Ollie Pop’s gloves. The on-field umpire gave a soft signal out and referred the matter to the third umpire. After the situation was not clear from the footage of the TV camera, the third umpire declared Shakeel out considering the on-field umpire’s soft signal as correct.
