Australia vs Pakistan: ‘I hate to see that’ - Ian Chappell hits out at Steve Smith for ‘white-anting’ Tim Paine with field placements

Australia dismissed Pakistan for 239 Monday to win the day-night second Test at Adelaide by an innings and 48 runs inside four days and wrap up the series 2-0. Ian Chappell expressed his displeasure after Steve Smith continued to fiddle with the position of a fielder which was initially set by Paine.

Former Australia cricketer Ian Chappell accused Steve Smith of ‘white-anting’ (Australian colloquial term for undermining) and claimed the star batsman was undermining Tim Paine by making changes in field placements set by the skipper on fourth day of second Test against Pakistan at Adelaide Oval on Saturday. Chappell expressed his displeasure after Smith continued to fiddle with the position of a fielder which was initially set by Paine.

“I tell you what I don’t like to see, Steve Smith is moving a few fieldsmen around,” Chappell told Macquarie Sports Radio as quoted by Fox Sports. “He did have a chat with Tim Paine, trying to talk Tim Paine into moving a fielder on the off-side, but I’m not sure Tim Paine moved him as far as Steve Smith wanted.

“Steve Smith started moving him, I hate to see that. England used to do it a bit, blokes other than the captain and I always felt it was white anting the captain,” he added.

Australia’s victory came on the back of their mammoth 589 for three declared, driven by David Warner’s memorable 335 not out. Pakistan were then all out for 302 and forced to follow on.
