The decision was wrong: Harbhajan Singh on controversial dismissal of Shubman Gill

Harbhajan Singh was having an interaction with Star Sports and stated that the third referee’s decision was completely wrong and said that the referee should have taken a bit more time before making the decision.

“According to me, it is not out. Why didn’t the referee zoom when the situation was to zoom, because you have the technology and the cameras and we have all the little things available?

“These things will help in decision making. The decision was wrong and the referee should have taken a little more time. The ball was between the two fingers and then the two fingers weren’t there.”
