Rohit Sharma’s controversial dismissal has raised several eyebrows. In the last ball of 6th over ball went between bat and pad and a confident caught-behind appeal from Caribbeans and the third umpire was quick in making decision.
A not-out on-field decision forced them to use DRS and There was a spike, but was it off the pad or bat? The ball was between those two, but it looked like the ball was closer to the bat without any clear evidence. The third umpire was quick to deem it out.
Even the on-field umpire was confused and Rohit Sharma can’t believe that he was given out.
Desi Twitter lashes out the 3rd umpire Michael Gough for his controversial decision.

That was not out. Clearly.
You need conclusive evidence to overturn an onfield decision, which wasn’t there.
That may change the course of the match now….
Shitty umpiring at its best #INDvsWI
