'I Apologised to Smith on Behalf of the Crowd': Virat Kohli

10:24AM
Out come the sides

Big Indian presence in the stands. Not a lot of yellow  gold

The videos and pictures of Zampa rubbing the ball each time after he put his hands inside the pocket went viral on social media.

India made quite a statement with their clinical victory against holders Australia but captain Virat Kohli is not entertaining any premature thoughts or taking a place in the semi-finals of the World Cup for granted.

The footage brought about claims of ball-tampering, following Australia's highly-publicised drama in South Africa past year. It was a good day for the captain, who had earlier won the toss, as he juggled his bowling attack against Australia's fearsome batting line-up.

Australian captain Aaron Finch has been forced to defend him, saying he was probably using the hand warmers he always has in his pocket. It was more the state of the game that dictated the way I played.

"I haven't seen the photos, but I know that he has hand warmers in his pocket". Several teams have received unofficial warnings from umpires for balls being bounced on the way back to wicketkeepers, potentially scuffing the leather.

Smith was banned by Cricket Australia for 12 months previous year for his role in ball tampering case during Cape Town Test against South Africa.

Exhausted of watching the rain in Bristol , he said: "Hopefully we can play". "I know logistically it would have caused problems. Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka - neither of whom are expected to make the semi-finals - receive a point for their troubles.

Australia's winning start to the 2019 Cricket World Cup came to a crashing halt on Sunday as they were outclassed by a strong India team at The Oval, and they will now look to regroup and get back to winning ways against Pakistan.

Next up for Virat Kohli's side is a clash with 2015 runners-up New Zealand at Trent Bridge on Thursday and Srikkanth warned the Indians not to underestimate the Black Caps' powerful seam attack. The guy's back you know he's trying to play well for his side even in the IPL I saw him.

"Shikhar (Dhawan) played really well and the stats say if you get 120 you will win most games".

It comes despite he, Smith and the Australian side having at times had a fractured relationship on the field.

"We've had issues in the past, we have had arguments on the field".
