New Delhi: New Delhi: On the 5th day of the Sydney test between India and Australia (IND vs AUS), Steve Smith committed a shameful act. On his crime, the Australian media tried to cover up his crime. Maybe the local media were trying to save the cricketer from his country.
Smith from the field
When the drinks were broken in the fourth inning of the match, Rishabh Pant left the pitch and went to drink some water. Meanwhile, Steve Smith damaged the field with his shoes. While the Australian team struggled to secure wickets, Smith did so in an effort to help his bowlers.
Can’t hide the crime
This act of Steve Smith was captured on camera in the stumps, but the Australian media tried to cover it up and meanwhile old footage started showing on TV. Despite this, Smith’s crime could not be hidden, as the TV feed received outside of Australia could be clearly seen by Smith damaging the pitch. However, returning to the crease, Pant again flattened part of the pitch with his bat.
Australian Steve Smith struck in the shadows as he arrived at the crease after the drinking break and proceeded to remove the guard marks from Rishabh Pant.

Strict measures can be taken
What Steve Smith did is considered an offense within the meaning of Article 2.10 of the ICC Code of Conduct. It is maintained in the category of “unfair sports”. The rule states that “a defender who intentionally and avoidably damages the terrain will be considered a level 1 or 2 offense”. This Australian player can be severely punished as soon as the ICC learns of it.
Stuck in ball tampering 2 years ago
Breaking the ICC rules is nothing new to Steve Smith. In 2018, he got caught up in the Australian bulletproof scandal controversy in 2018. What is also known as the Sandpapergate scandal.
Lost harbor master’s office
Smith was the captain of the Australian cricket team when the ball tampering controversy arose. As a result of this act, he had to lose his post as captain, and he was banned from playing cricket for a year. Along with him, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were also banned.
