India's Virat Kohli praised for defending Steve Smith from crowds

Adam Zampa's hand warmers at Cricket World Cup reignite ball-tampering claims

Fans also took note of Kohli's gesture and the Indian skipper's picture of appealing to the spectators was also the most tweeted and retweeted picture on Twitter.

Steve Smith and David Warner, key protagonists in the Cape Town scandal, served one-year bans, only returning to global cricket at the World Cup.

The accusations were particularly fuelled by the memory of sandpaper-gate, a ball tampering scandal that rocked Australian cricket previous year in South Africa.

Smith top-scored for Australia with a near run-a-ball 69, but Warner's 56, at a strike rate of just 66.66, almost 30 below his ODI career average, suggested he was still carrying some scars.

His touching gesture towards Australian plater Steven Smith changed the complexion and atmosphere of the stadium.

While Australia have a number of strong batsmen in their side, including David Warner, Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell, Afridi feels that Finch's wicket will be the crucial one.

He said Winslow used his fame to abuse the most vulnerable, which included middle-aged and elderly women. He was found not guilty of committing lewd conduct in front of Jane Doe 5 on a separate occasion.

Speaking after the match Kohli said he had also apologised to Smith. I honestly haven't seen them (the images), so I can't comment too much on it. While Ayushmann Khurrana shared one of his recent quotes on the matter and said, "A true icon".

"I think what's happened has happened like long back, the guy is back, he's trying to play well for his side".

"We've had issues in the past, we have had arguments on the field".

"With Hardik having that ability to clear the boundary so effortlessly, you want to see his back when he's going full swing you don't want him to spend time in the middle". The deeper we take it, we trust our batters to soak up a few balls.

"But you don't want to see a guy feeling that heat every time he goes out to play". He's come back. He's worked hard. He said in the post-match presentation: "I felt for him and told him sorry on behalf of the crowd".

In 2007, Yuvraj scored the fastest fifty in 20-over cricket, as he reached half-century in just 12 balls against England.
