#Test Match 4 - #Dharamshala
Australian captain #SteveSmith is embroiled in another #Cheating #Scandal only this time he is the one pointing the finger.
An #Angry Smith appeared to mouth the words "f------ cheat" after India's #MuraliVijay had claimed a low #Catch which was later overturned by the video #Umpire.
Smith's 'f------ cheat' outburst Smith's 'f------ cheat' outburst
Australian skipper Steve Smith is caught on camera mouthing the words 'f------ cheat' after India's Murali Vijay had claimed a low catch.
The Australian camp refused to weigh into what Smith said on Monday night but the visitors are now open to claims of double standards after Smith's foul-mouthed dressing room outburst.
The Vijay incident was a line-ball call where even with the aid of close-up video angles it cannot be conclusively proven whether the fielder had gotten his fingers under the ball.
It is common for players in such situations to let the video umpire deliberate but Vijay rushed off the field to pad up in preparation to open India's innings. #Australia's #Batting #Coach #GraemeHick believed #Vijay should have stayed until a final #Verdict was reached.
"Having fielded in slip or close to the bat myself sometimes you're not 100 per cent sure. He would have felt that go into his fingers and felt it was a clean catch," Hick said. "Once the batter or whoever it may be is gone to the review than fair enough, maybe the fielders should stand around and wait. "The process is in place. At times the series has been a little bit heated but I think this game has been played in very good spirit and he obviously thought he had a clean catch. It goes upstairs, come back and get on with the game."
Jadeja and Wade's sledging caught on mic
#Jadeja and #Wade's sledging caught on #mic. Stump-microphones have recorded Matthew Wade's and Steve Smith's row with Ravindra Jadeja on the third day of the final Test.
"You called me it. I just want to know what it is," Wade was heard saying on the stump effects mic said after Jadeja addressed him in Hindi.
"I just want to know what it is, hello?
"We're alright, I'll get a selfie with him at the end of the game. We'll put it on Instagram", Jadeja said after play: "I was just telling Wade that we will meet and have dinner once you guys have lost the Test."
Meanwhile, India regain Border-Gavaskar trophy
India regained #BorderGavaskarTrophy by beating Australia 2-1 in the test series. On Day 4, India wasted no time chasing their 87 runs to victory and not even two early wickets from #PatCummins could stop them.
