The Day 5 of the Sydney test started in not so good fashion for the Indian team. Their in-form skipper – Ajinkya Rahane got dismissed in only the second over of the day and with that the hopes of the Indian fans somewhat crumbled. Rishabh Pant walked in as the next batsman after taking a blow on his elbow on the third day of the match.

Showing his grit, the aggressive batsman played cautiously in the early part of his innings. However, with time, his confidence grew and he took the attack to the Aussie bowlers. During his stay at the crease, the left-hander smashed 12 fours and 3 sixes. A sense of panic was visible on the faces of Australian players which prompted them to adopt such tactics which are raising questions on their integrity.

The Australian fielders were seen throwing the ball which seemed as if they were trying to aim at the bodies of Indian batsmen. Taking things to the next level, Australian batsman – Steve Smith’s actions have caught everyone’s attention and became a talking point all over the internet.

The incident occurred in the second session of Day 5 at the time of drinks break. In what could have been an attempt to disrupt Pant’s confidence, Smith was caught rubbing off the batting mark of the 23-year-old. Earlier, Smith enacted as if he was doing shadow batting but seconds later he made his intentions clear and tried to scuff the guard mark created by Pant.

Here’s the video of the incident:

Smith’s face is not visible in the video but a player wearing jersey no.49 can be seen tampering with Pant’s batting guard. For the unknown, Smith dons the Aussie Jersey no.49 and was the one involved in the incident. Although, his action may just be a tactic to get under Pant’s skin but it definitely raise questions on his sportsmanship in the gentleman’s game.
