Australia Captain Says Sorry For Cheating!

Australia skipper Steven Smith has sought an apology for his controversial act of looking at the dressing room for suggestion on going for DRS review during the fourth innings of the second Test in Bengaluru that India won on Tuesday by 75 runs.

When Smith was given LBW of Umesh Yadav during the second innings of Australia, the skipper first discussed with his partner at non-striker’s end Handscomb on going for DRS review. He later looked at the dressing room for a suggestion, which was completely against the spirit of the game.

Indian players, especially skipper Virat Kohli rushed towards Smith and had a heated chat with him over the cheating act. On-field umpire had to rush to warn Smith and send Kohli away. Later in the post-match press conference, Kohli ridiculed his Australia counterpart for the cunning act.

Several senior players from India as well as Australia and also the commentators found fault with Smith’s behavior and demanded for a stern action against him from the ICC. BCCI also made fun of Smith on twitter by posting, “DRS – Dressing room review system?”

After his act turned highly controversial and got the rebuke from his own seniors, Smith issued an apology. “It was a bit of a brain fade and I shouldn’t have done that,” Smith said.

The Test series is currently leveled at 1-1 with two more matches to go.
