Cheteshwar Pujara, who was in exceptional touch in the Test series against Australia, was involved in a controversial moment when he refused to walk despite being caught behind against Karnataka.

He edged one of the deliveries bowled by Karnataka pacer Abhimanyu Mithun leading to celebrations among rival players but umpire didn’t raise his finger.

Even Pujara didn’t walk despite knowing that he was out.

Karun Nair and Manish Pandey were furious with Pujara’s attitude. Cricket fanatics slammed the Indian batsman, who turned against him for refusing to walk back to the pavilion.

He was finally dismissed by Mithun on 45, with Saurashtra ending the day at 227/7, trailing Karnataka’s first innings total of 275 by 48 runs.
