Indian cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara is back in India after performing superbly against Australia in the recently concluded test series and now he is playing for his home team Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy. Pujara is in news once again but this time for all the wrong reasons.

During the ongoing semi-final match against Karnataka which is being played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Pujara was given not-out by the on-field umpire despite the fact that ball clearly edged bat and went into the hands of wicket-keeper.

It was Pujara’s birthday so people started saying that the on-field umpire gave him a gift but what didn’t go well with Twitterati was the fact that a senior player like Pujara didn’t walk out himself because it is quite impossible that he didn’t know that he is out. This incident took place in the 23rd over when Saurashtra was 64/2, Pujara was on the personal score of just 1 run and the bowler was Abhimanyu Mithun. However, Pujara fell to the same bowler after scoring 45 runs which he made in 99 balls and at that time, his team’s score was 178.

Karnataka has scored only 275 runs and now Saurashtra seems to be in a good position but fans are criticising the cricketer for not walking out and also the umpire for not being able to make out the nick. Check out some of the selected reactions:
