A huge controversy erupted during the Under-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy final between Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. An umpiring decision has caught the attention of the fans after Karnataka opener Prakhar Chaturvedi was given out caught-behind by the on-field umpire, despite wicketkeeper Aaradhya Yadav clearly grassing the ball. The incident took place during the morning session of Day 1 when Chaturvedi tried to swat Shubham Mishra’s delivery for a boundary.

However, the ball was sliding down the leg side and Prakhar only managed to get the slightest of edges.

The UP players made a strong appeal for caught behind and the umpire raised his finger, while Aaradhya was busy gathering the ball from the ground.

Taking to social media, a fan pointed out the bizarre incident and questioned the “level of umpiring” in the domestic circuit.

The fan urged the BCCI to investigate the incident and penalise the umpire.

Some of the users even called for a ban on the wicketkeeper Yadav for cheating.

Meanwhile, the Ranji Trophy final is being contested between Mumbai and Vidarbha at the Wankhede Stadium.

A century by Musheer Khan propelled Mumbai to 418 and helped them set a target of 538 against Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy final.

At Tea on Day 4, Vidarbha were 155/4 with Karun Nair and captain Akshay Wadkar in the middle.
