Dharamsala: Australia captain Steve Smith was seen hurling abuse at the Indian cricket team, after Murali Vijay went up in appeal for a catch against Josh Hazlewood, during the fourth Test in Dharamsala, on Monday.
The Australian batting lineup experienced a tremendous collapse, after dismissing India for 332, earlier in the day.
A bowling effort that seemed to have put them back in contention in the match, was completely undone by this batting collapse.
Towards the end of their innings, Murali Vijay appealed for a catch against Hazlewood, when the Aussies were nine wickets down. There was some doubt as to whether the ball had carried to the India opener, and third umpire Chris Gaffaney ruled not out.
TV footage of Smith, who was in the dressing room at this point of time, suggested that the Asutralia skipper hurled an abuse, supposedly aimed at Murali Vijay; he seemed to have uttered the words “f**king cheat”.
