Steve Smith Rubs Pant’s Guard mark

After footage of Steve Smith rubbing off guard marks found its way on social media and the followers of the Men in Blue started calling out the opponents for a clear lack of sportsmanship, their counterpart wished to turn their face towards Indian player, Rishabh Pant.

Rishabh Pant injury is a tactic?

No, Rishabh Pant has not faked his injury. Apart from this particular user non-other have claimed regarding this. Cricket commentators and analyst usually point out the activities that happen in the match.

According to the Australians, it was Team India’s tactic to exaggerate Pant’s elbow injury and use it as an excuse to not let him keep wickets in the second innings after a disappointing stint in the first.

“But feigning injury so you can sub in a better keeper and then going out to bat 5 is well within the spirit of the game,” wrote a Twitter user upon viewing Smith’s video.

 

Looking at the sheer audacity of the Australian fans who blamed Pant for cheating, Indian fans did not hold back in listing down all the wrong things Team Australia did in recent years, including the infamous ‘sandpaper gate’.

“Oh so we are cheatersFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy We had used sand paper for damaging ball. We were asking for confirmation for DRS in the stands. Our players were banned for a year. We discriminate the guest teams that come to play in India. We remove the batting gaurd. Woow… we are cheaters,” says Abhishek, another Twitter user.
