BCCI Takes a Dig at Steven Smith Over Dressing Room Controversy

New Delhi: It is just not the Indian and Australian teams fighting it out in the middle at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on the fourth day, even the two boards have started taking digs at each other with the latest one coming on the face of Australia skipper Steve Smith looking at the dressing room for a clue after he was wrapped on the pads by Umesh Yadav.

It was the 21st over of the Australia innings when Umesh wrapped Smith on the pads with one that skidded on after pitching. The Indians appealed straightaway as the ball hit Smith almost on his boots. Even as the Indians celebrated with Nigel Llong raising his finger, Smith could be seen looking at the dressing room, waiting for a clue if he should go for a review.

Virat Kohli intervened and even though Llong was already speaking to Smith, Kohli jumped in as some heated words were exchanged between the two. It finally took Llong to interfere and send the Australian back.

Taking a dig at Smith for trying to get a clue from the Australian dressing room, BCCI took to Twitter to post: “DRS - Dressing room review system? Smith tries to get some suggestions from the dressing room for a review … #INDvAUS.”

This comes after Cricket Australia had highlighted David Warner's dismissal on the fourth Day of the Test on twitter.
