    I might be ordering a new pair of eyes but with my current one I can see about 20% of that red thing in clear contact with the green surface unless Azhar Ali has this...

    Yeah it looks dodgy and in normal circumstances benefit of doubt goes to batsman but the issue here is that the soft signal was out. Third umpire needs conclusive evidences to overturn the onfield decision and this is why all these complains by Pak supporters.

    It was out. The fingers are under the ball and once the finger are under and the ball is in control of the catcher it is given OUT.

    There is big difference between bouncing or touching the ground.
    If it bounce b4 getting caught then we all know its not out but touching the ground is a touchy issue.
    As per my understanding the rule were relaxed in this regards to allow players more space to support their fall while catching,I may be wrong but mostly i believe that rule were changed.

    Ball touching the grass blades is NOT an automatic not-out.

    If your fingers (dipped in the grass) are under the ball, and the ball lands on your fingers, even though it might have touched the grass blades BEFORE it hits your fingers, you are still out. That's fair play.

    But....... his fingers were never under the ball in this case. He grabbed and gripped the ball from it's sides and quite clearly transferred his weight on to the ball while he was rolling over and that ball did pushed against the ground in the process.

    You're mentioning grass blades as if he was fielding in a khet in Punjab and not on a finely trimmed cricket ground.


    No finger under the ball - Right hand index and middle finger are visible in this frame. Not possible for the ring finger to be under there as well because he had taped it with the middle finger.

    Again you can clearly see that right hand middle finger with taping on. Definitely on the side and not covering the bottom part of the ball. And the bechaari ball is being groped clearly by the surface.

    Now this is towards the end of the process when he was raising his arms away from the ground. Again, only his middle finger is helping him to hold that ball and its clearly from the side and not from under the ball.

    The ball did touch the ground clearly and under no cricket law, old or new, should be given out.

    Soft signal again was out.... I can't understand why this soft signal rule is there. When you are going to use technology for making a decision, then there should be no influence from an on-field opinion of the umpires.

    Secondly, ICC gotta make it clear... if the ball is in control of the fielder but still touching the ground/grass/surface then should it be given out or not. Until last decade, I'm sure it used to be quite clear to everyone that the ball can't be in any contact of the ground.

    It's something like this (check the below video where the ball clearly touches the ground after the catch). So is this out?
