MANCHESTER — India opener Rohit Sharma on Friday took to social media to express his disappointment over his controversial dismissal against West Indies.

Sharma, who was ruled out on 18 off 23 balls, posted a close-up picture of his dismissal on his official Twitter page, suggesting that there was a significant gap between the bat and ball.

The picture posted by Sharma indicates that the ball clipped his right pad instead of the bat. 

Sharma was visibly disappointed after being given out caught behind by wicketkeeper Shai Hope of the bowling of Kemar Roach in the match on Thursday.

The right-hander was deceived by an in-swinging delivery from Roach in the final ball of the sixth over and the West Indies team went up in appeal for caught behind, suggesting Sharma had got an inside-edge onto the wicketkeeper.

On-field umpire Richard Illingworth ruled it not-out but West Indies captain Jason Holder went for the review and third umpire Michael Gough overturned the call in the Caribbean side’s favour.

The third umpire seemed to have gone by the snicko after repeated replays showed there was a gap between the bat and ball.
