Adam Zampa found tampering with the ball:- However, amidst Indian batting fireworks, what grabbed the eyeballs was an Adam Zampa carrying out a dubious activity on the field. Having bowled three overs already in the match for 24 runs, the fourth oversaw him taking out something from his pocket before he starts rubbing the ball. While an official investigation is yet to commence, videos regarding the same are doing the rounds on the Internet.

The Sandpaper gate incident would be still fresh in the minds of Aussie players and a repeat of such an incident could lose a substantial amount of respect for Australian cricketers around the world.

Australia will play their next match against Pakistan on Wednesday, while India will fly to Nottingham to meet New Zealand in their third match on Thursday.
