New Twist: Peter Handscomb Takes The Blame For Smith DRS Controversy

Steve Smith contemplating a DRS referral.

In addition to roundly dismissing rival captain Steve Smith's mea culpa for looking to the dressing room as he considered calling for a DRS examination yesterday as a "brain fade", Kohli also took aim at recent remarks from Australia spinner Nathan Lyon and former Test wicketkeeper Ian Healy. "Then I just turned around and said what do you reckon?" added Smith. Steve Smith probably had a fair idea of his fate after the decision was given but since his team's chances of chasing down the total heavily depended on him he had to contemplate a review.

The rules forbid players from consulting with anyone off the field about whether to seek a review from the umpires. That is why the umpire knew what was happening. "I pointed that out to the umpire as well that I had seen their players looking upstairs for confirmation".

Virat Kohli was unhappy with the way Australian captain Steve Smith consistently asked the dressing room before opting for DRS. "You don't cross a certain line in cricket".

Post midnight, it was Handscombe, who took to twitter to defend his captain and take the blame for what Smith has termed as a "brain fade".

Draft Obamacare Repeal Plan Targets The Individual Mandate, Medicaid, And Abortion Coverage
The signature project of former President Barack Obama , the ACA created state Marketplaces that offer health insurance plans. But, it also said: "Obamacare's Medicaid expansion for able-bodied adult enrollees would be repealed in its current form".

"I didn't use that word, you did", he snapped at an Australian journalist.

With players from both sides likely to be fined over the heated exchanges, it all helped wrap up what has been an incredibly tempestuous Test match. Healy had on radio claimed that Kohli's over-the-top on-field aggression and antics were beginning to diminish the respect he had for him.

Virat Kohli blew up believing Australia were rorting the Decision Review System in Bangalore with Clarke admitting he wants to find out more about the allegations. I think it makes for a great contest. Later, in the post-match press conference, Kohli revealed that he has been noticing this kind of behaviour for the last three days. The bowling on Day 3, when the visitors allowed Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara to stitch that century stand was the chief of the lot. Look, it's disappointing, but I am still proud of the way the boys competed.

Kohli also rejected Smith's comment that his look to the dressing room was a "brain fade" and declared it was "by far the sweetest victory" of his career. "I told the team only one thing, that we would win together and lose together". He later looked at the dressing room for a suggestion, which was completely against the spirit of the game. A bit of a brain fade.

Kohli said it was not an isolated incident and had happened throughout the Test. It is better still that he had cautioned the match referee and umpires in advance of Australia's dishonest practices and this helped them deal firmly with Smith's transgressions.
