The Australian captain Steve Smith is having a series full of controversies and he added another one to the list on Monday. During Australia’s 2nd innings, Indian opener Murali Vijay who was fielding in the first slip pulled off a low catch. However, the replay showed that the ball touched the ground and the batsman wasn’t given out. But, the Australian skipper couldn’t hold his emotions back and in a disgraceful act was recorded abusing Vijay. The clip was shown on television and went viral on social media within minutes.

Watch the incident here:

Earlier Smith was in a controversy when he asked for assistance from the dressing room over the DRS. Back then, the Indian captain Virat Kohli stopped short of calling his counterpart a cheat. Speaking to the media ahead of the final Test in Dharamshala, Smith said, “He (Rahane) is probably a bit more chilled out, out on the field. Probably, not quite as emotional. But, no, look, I think he understands the game really well. “I’ve been fortunate enough to play a fair bit of cricket with Ajinkya, and I think he reads the game and understands the game really well. So if Virat was to miss this Test match, then I’m sure the Indian side will still be in very good hands.”

India needs 87 runs to win the match and lift the Border-Gavaskar series on day 4 of the Dharamshala Test after a dismal batting performance by the Australian side. “Obviously, David will be very disappointed with his aggregate on tour. He is a very aggressive player, that’s the way he likes to play and the way we like him to play. He was desperate to have a very big tour and to have a very big influence here. Whether he put himself under a bit too much pressure to do so, only he can answer that,” said Hick, Australia’s batting coach about David Warner’s poor tour.

Ravindra Jadeja’s reply to Matthew Wade:

“He will reflect on it as champions do and feel and assess it himself. But without a doubt, he is one of our major players and you would have hoped for a little bit more from him but he was challenged. It is tough up front. Jadeja into the rough and Ashwin also bowls really well at him. They certainly questioned him. That’s the beauty of the game, it puts these challenges up between great players and makes it very interesting to watch. David will obviously be very disappointed with the way things have gone, he added.
