IND vs AUS: Ravindra Jadeja ball-tampering? BCCI gave the explanation

Jaddu sent batsmen like Marnus Labushane, Steve Smith, Matthew Renshaw, Peter Handskob and Todd Marfe to the pavilion successively. This is the 11th time Jadeja has hit a punch in Tests.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who entered the field after a gap of about five months, made a splash. In the first Test against Australia at Nagpur venue, Jadeja took five wickets and made a grand re-entry. He sent batsmen like Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Matthew Renshaw, Peter Handskob and Todd Morphy to the pavilion in succession. This is the 11th time Jadeja has hit a punch in Tests. But one thing Jadeja did in this match became viral on social media. An Australian netizen posted a video on Twitter of Jadeja applying something to his finger while bowling in the second session of the match. In this video, Jadeja is seen taking something from Mohammad Siraj and writing on his left finger. An Australian fan asked former Australian captain Tim Paine about this and Paine gave an interesting answer. He replied ‘Interesting’ to this video. Did Jadeja do any cheating? They commented. The famous Australian cricket channel Fox Cricket also reported about this. Stories were made expressing suspicions that Jadeja was tampering with the ball.

In this episode, Australian media is trying to reduce the performance of team India with false stories and news instead of the game itself. In this order, BCCI responded to the allegations of ball tampering coming against Jadeja. The BCCI has clarified that Jadeja only applied saluvaghi ointment to his finger to relieve the pain. Thus, the allegations of ball tampering against Jadeja have been dismissed. Meanwhile, five years ago, the players of the same Australian team bowed their heads in front of the cricket world with allegations of ball tampering. During the 2018 tour of South Africa, captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and young batsman Cameron Bancroft were caught on camera tampering with the ball. As a result, the three were banned from cricket for a year. Among them, David Warner and Steve Smith are currently playing on the Indian tour.
