Australia captain Steve Smith has reopened the DRS controversy that arose during the India-Australia Test series earlier this year, stating that Team India captain Virat Kohli’s claims were nothing but ‘rubbish’.
Virat Kohli, earlier this year, had claimed about a systemic DRS abuse by Australia during the Test series between the two teams.
Also, during a press conference at the Bangalore Test, Kohli had almost termed the Aussie captain as a ‘cheat’.
"I am not entirely sure about what he was coming on about there. Because that was the only moment that it ever happened," Steve Smith was quoted.
"As far as I was concerned, we'd never tried to consult with the dressing room beforehand and although he said he'd brought those previous occasions to the notice of the umpires, I can say categorically that we were never spoken to by either those umpires or match referee Chris Broad about any such breaches in protocol," he added.
The Border-Gavasker Trophy earlier this year, was won by Virat Kohli and co, as they clinched the series 2-1.
In the recently-concluded limited overs series, the Men in Blue had comfortably defeated the world champions 4-1 in the ODI series, while the T20 trophy was shared 1-1.
