Steve Smith did a controversial thing by scuffing off an Indian batsman’s guard. While drinks break was on, Rohit Sharma does shadow practice some to tease Steve Smith. While Smith was standing on the pitch.
Rohit Sharma might have done this to get back at Smith for what the latter did in the last test. Still, it should be taken as a joke and nothing serious. After all, cricket is a gentleman’s game. After Rohit did this, his fans started to troll him and Smith on social media platforms like Twitter.
Fans do like to have innocent fun now and then. If we talk about the ongoing match in Gabba, then India has been given a target of 328 runs. Australia won the toss and they had opted to bat first. They were able to put up a strong total of 369 runs in their first innings. Marnus Labuschagne managed to score a century (108 runs), and he was also assisted by Tim Paine (50), Cameroon Green (47), and Matthew Wade (45).
