CEO James Sutherland of Cricket Australia has come out strongly in support of Captain of Australian cricket team Steve Smith, in light of the allegation by Virat Kohli . In a post match conference Kohli has stopped just short of accusing Steve Smith of Cheating. The controversy aroused when Steve Smith looked towards the dressing room when he was given out LBW to Umesh Yadav.
Responding to the allegations, James Sutherland made a strong case for the captain and the team. In a statement he said, “Steve is an outstanding cricketer and person, and role to many aspiring cricketers and we have every faith that was no ill-intent in his actions.” He further added that the allegation regarding the integrity of Steve Smith is outrageous.
