India vs Australia: Rohit Sharma shadow bats on crease as Smith watches
New Delhi : In the last Test match, Steve Smith was caught erasing Rishabh Pant guard mark on the crease and in the ongoing Test Rohit Sharma's act looks like a troll to him. However, it is difficult to say if Rohit Sharma did it intentionally or not.
Check out the video below to see how Rohit Sharma shadow batted during the break in the game while Steve Smith was looking at him.
In the last game, Steve Smith was seen erasing the guard marks of Rishabh Pant and he denied all the allegations and said he was disappointed to see the kind of reactions on social media.
“I have been quite shocked and disappointed by the reaction,” Smith had told News Corp last week after the controversy broke out.
“It's something I do in games to visualise where we are bowling, how the batter is playing our bowlers and then out of habit I always mark centre,” he added.
Langer had called the allegations against Smith “absolute rubbish.”
“As for Steve Smith, I literally cannot believe some of the rubbish I've read -- absolute load of rubbish,” Langer said last week.
“I mean, anyone who knows Steve Smith, he is a bit quirky... and we have all laughed about it for the last couple of years.
“What Steve Smith does at the crease he does it probably most games, he's just thinking about the game. Anyone who suggests for one millisecond he was trying to do something untoward, they're way out of line,” Langer added.
