Australian skipper Ricky Ponting smashed a LCD television, apparently in a fit of anger, in the team's dressing room here after he was run out against Zimbabwe, sources in the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) said today.
The incident took place immediately after Ponting was run out yesterday by a direct hit from deep wicket by Zimbabwe's Chris Meofu in the Group A clash between the two teams.
The captain was run out on 28. GCA said they have informed about the incident to the Australian cricketing authorities. However, when contacted Australian media manager Lachy Patterson said he was not aware of any such incident. GCA officials said that they would be meeting today to decide on further action in this connection.
