Steve Smith steps down as Rajasthan Royals captain. Rahane to lead in IPL 2018
As soon as the cameras panned towards Bancroft, he knew he was in trouble. Like a student trying to avoid the gaze of a teacher while cheating, Bancroft hurriedly made sure that the yellow tape he used on the ball gets hidden. The cameras, umpires and the whole world saw Australians trying to cheat in the 3rd test against South Africa. That very night, Steve Smith with Bancroft called in a press conference and accepted the allegations made against them. Steve Smith was handed a one match while Bancroft had to let go of only his match fees. But this didn’t go down well with the cricket supporters. Harbhajan Singh made a strong attack against the subtle treatment given by ICC to the Aussies. Steven Smith did step down from the captaincy of Rajasthan Royals. Ajinkya Rahane will now be leading the squad in IPL 2018. Now one awaits the fate of David Warner in Sunrisers Hyderabad. Was the ICC too lenient on the Australians according to you?
