Australia Cricket Team captain Steven said: Virat Kohli’s statement was ‘Nonsense’
Indian captain Virat Kohli has been accused by Cricket Australia captain Steven Smith for misusing his review system (DRS) in the Bangalore Test.
Smith said that Indian captain Virat Kohli made this thing so difficult. And it is very surprising to see that all the talk of this matter was discontinued as the series ended with India. While talking to ESPNcricinfo, Smith termed DRS-related matters as rubbish.
Australians who were touring India for the first time were ahead in the series after winning the first Test and in the fourth innings of the Second Test match played in Bangalore, easy to pursue the goal was on the hard pitch. During this time, Smith was named the umpire. Smith stood on the other end to go to Peter Handscomb to discuss the DRS and during this time he was seen asking for help in the dressing room to take the DRS. Although umpire Nigel Long stopped him from doing this.
Australian team accuses of harming sports spirit
Later, Kohli had accused the Australian team of harming the game spirit for this. It was said that they have seen such actions by Australia before. This issue was covered in the headlines.
Smith says Virat likes this kind of stimulating environment so that he can get the best out of his own. He said, Virat is the kind of player who likes the hot atmosphere, he likes the battle like me. All I can say is that it was a way to stimulate the atmosphere in their series so that they could get the best out of their own.
The Australian captain said, there was nothing further on this issue from the ICC nor did Virat ever tell some tafsil on that issue. After the match, some small matches, in the IPL, the captain’s meeting was like a great friend. His behavior was friendly and it seemed that there would have been some bitterness about him, then he was finished. It was a mystery to me and it will always be there.
