Oval : In the India and Australia match, cameras caught Adam Zampa shoving his hands in his pocket and then subsequently rubbing the ball.
There were speculations that the leg-spinner was trying to alter the conditions of the ball, but Australian captain Aaron Finch rubbished all such claims and said that Zampa was only using a hand-warmer.
“I haven’t seen the photos, but I know that he has hand warmers in his pocket. He has them every single game he plays. I honestly haven’t seen them (the images), so I can’t comment too much on it. But I know for a fact that he has hand warmers every game,” cricket.com.au quoted Finch as saying.
But umpires did not raise any concern regarding the incident. Twitter users started tweeting about the incident and questioned Adam Zampa’s action.
A user tweeted: “Did #AdamZampa temperd the ball? @ICC.”
Steve Smith and David Warner are still facing the wrath of their involvement in the ball-tampering case which took place last year, following which they faced a one-year long ban.
Even after serving a year-long ban, Indian fans jeered the former Australia captain Smith and shouted “Cheater! Cheater!.”
However, Indian skipper came in to back Smith as he insisted the fans to cheer Smith instead of booing him.
