Cricket fans split over Moeen decision
Moeen Ali has been stumped at the Gabba.
Ali played inside the line of a Nathan Lyon delivery, with keeper Tim Paine whipping off the bails.
The decision went to the third umpire, narrowly falling Australia’s way.
The wicket left England in a precarious position – and set debate raging among cricket fans.

Awful decision to moen ali out.#ashes

Can’t conclusively say that’s out. Shouldn’t be given. Probably will be. #Ashes

Out or not, that’s terrific awareness from Payne. #Ashes

Not long after, Stuart Broad was also given out controversially.
Broad was initially given not out, but Steve Smith challenged the decision, believing him to be caught behind.
Hot Spot replays revealed the feintest of edges.
There’s an EXTREMELY feint mark on Broad’s edge!
McGrath: “That couldn’t have hit the bat any less.” #Ashes

You can see why Broad doesn’t think he’s hit that, that is such a fine edge #ashes
