A no-ball howler has sparked controversy on the opening day of the Sheffield Shield final between Victoria and New South Wales.
Victoria were in a strong position at 1-87 at lunch at Junction Oval in Melbourne but slipped to 3-113 in the second session thanks to dual strikes from Trent Copeland.
The seamer trapped youngster Will Pucovski (17) in front for seven and then had Seb Gotch (two) edging to third slip.
But television replays showed Copeland overstepped the crease by some margin on the delivery that dismissed Gotch.
"That's certainly not out," ex-Australia coach Darren Lehmann said in commentary on Fox Sports.
Former national wicketkeeper Ian Healy said the game could spend the cash on a camera focused on the crease at Shield level.
"Have a camera on the crease so they can use it for their own good,he said.
"I don't think umpires are looking at no balls as much as they used to ... because at the international level they get reviewed."
Video review technology is commonplace at international level.
Victoria won the toss and elected to bat, with incumbent Test opener Marcus Harris notching an unbeaten half-century after lunch.
