Ben Stokes booed by Indian crowd after claiming catch that appeared to hit the ground

After being bowled out for just 112 on day one of the third Test against India, England needed an early breakthrough and they thought they had it.

Fast bowler Stuart Broad found the edge of Shubman Gill and Ben Stokes felt that he had cleanly taken the catch. Gill stood his ground and the umpire went upstairs with a soft signal of out.
However, it took the third umpire just seconds to rule that the ball had brushed the ground and overturned the decision.

Stokes and the rest of the England team were livid at the ruling.

Commentator and former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar said the evidence was clear that Stokes did not take the catch.

What do you think Roarers?
