The international cricket community are reeling after several members of the Indian Test team, current and former, accused Steve Smith and the Australian team of terrible cheating in their use of the Decision Review System (DRS).
The situation came to a head during Australia's second innings in their most recent Test against India when Smith was struck on the pads and given out LBW by the on-field umpire. In discussing with fellow batman Pete Handscomb whether he should call for a review, Smith looked towards his team's dressing room, sparking accusations that he was looking for a signal from a team member to help him decide if the review would be successful.
India have now accused Australia of doing this on several occasions in the past two Tests, saying that it amounts to disappointing cheating.
"It's really sad and disappointing to see Australia cheat so badly," said former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman.
"They have been looking up to their dressing room after every dismissal to decide whether to review. They looked up after Warner was given out LBW and got their signal. They reviewed. He was still given out. They looked to the dressing room when Shaun Marsh was given out LBW and got their signal. They didn't review. He wouldn't have been out.
"The bottom line is - Australia are cheating and they're really shit at it."
Indian captain Virat Kohli made his feelings on the subject known both on the field and in the after-match press conference.
"I was angry at Smith because when such truly effective methods of cheating in cricket exist, like match fixing or eating a mint, I don't understand how they can be so bad at it.
"As a sport we have a reputation to uphold."
The final word went to the Australian captain himself, Steve Smith.
"Boof (coach Darren Lehmann) told me that if he was standing on the right side of the dressing room I should review, and the left side I shouldn't. But he didn't say if it was his left or my left. It's fucked."
The third Test between India and Australia begins on the 16th of March in Ranchi.
