Controversy has hit the first Ashes Test match between England and Australia, after the contentious non-dismissal of Stuart Broad in the final session of day three.
Facing teenage spinner Ashton Agar, Broad nicked the ball which flew off wicketkeeper Brad Haddin’s glove before finding the hands of Michael Clarke at first slip.
The Australian side celebrated as if the wicket was a certainty before realising umpire Aleem Dar had not given Broad out.
When the offcial remained unmoved Australia realised they had not got the wicket they had worked for much of the last session for and were forced to battle on against the Bell and Broad partnership, which finished at 108 not out at the close of play.
The Broad non-dismissal sparked uproar from the Australia camp, while English ex-players and media personalities believed the umpire is there to give you out, and until he does so, then you are entitled to remain at the crease.
Former Test wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist, who earned a reputation during his playing career for not waiting for the umpire’s verdict and walking back to the pavilion, was angered by Broad’s decision.
“Some people saying, you rely on the umpire. No you don’t, you rely on honesty,” Gilchrist tweeted, adding: “Disappointed by the Poms today, if you’re out – you walk.”
The Australian’s cricket analyst Gideon Haigh added an historical context to the latest Ashes drama.
“Something about Australians and walking invariably generates more heat than light. Let it be admitted: not even saintly Victor Trumper walked,” Haigh wrote.
However, if Australia had not thrown away a referral attempts just before lunch on day three then they would have been able to appeal Dar’s call, and video replay would have corrected the mistake.
The incident overshadowed the innings played by Bell, who stayed at the crease for close to five hours to reach 95 at the close of play.
Already England have a lead of 261 with four wickets in hand, and with a fragile Australian batting line-up set to chase more than 300 on a slow and turning pitch, the home side are in the box-seat to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
The controversy to end the third day has created even more buzz around the series the demand for Ashes tickets has increased dramatically as fans of the game clamber to book their seat to witness what is shaping up to be a fantastic contest.
