India’s in-form batsman Shubman Gill lost his wicket in a unique way when the right-hander was given caught out at slip on Day 2 of the ongoing tour game against Australia A at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Playing at 65, Shubman looked to flick the ball from spinner Mitchell Swepson and completely missed it. The bowler appealed for lbw and in the meantime, the ball travelled to the slip where Sean Abbott dove to his right and took a one-handed catch. The umpire reckons he got an edge as he ruled him out caught.

With no DRS and Snickometer technique available in the practice game, an unhappy Gill had to walk out as umpire’s decision could not be challenged. India lost their second wicket after a 104-run partnership between Gill and Mayank Agarwal. India had lost their first wicket in second over of the day when Prithvi Shaw was caught at cover-point.

At Day 2 tea, Indians are ahead in this game. Gill put himself in the reckoning for a place in the playing XI in the first Test after his 65.
