ICC mocks England fans for booing Steve Smith

The ICC tweeted the definition of karma directed at some England fans who booed Steve Smith.

Australia’s Steve Smith displayed a spectacular performance since the beginning of the Ashes 2019. In the fourth Ashes match at Old Trafford, Smith scored a double century and an 82 that led the team’s second win in the series. But despite this records made by Smith, he is continuously mocked by some of England’s fans.

Steve Smith was involved in the ‘Sandpaper scandal’ that took place on May 2018 during the third Test match against South Africa in Capetown. Smith, along with Cameron Bancroft and David Warner received a suspension and banned from playing international cricket for 18 months. The trio returned to the Ashes 2019. They played for the first time since the ban. 

The visiting team defeated England by 185 runs. It was the first time that Australia retained the Ashes on English soil since 2001. Following England’s defeat, the International Cricket Council tweeted the definition of the word ‘karma’. It seemed to be directed at some England fans who booed Steve Smith.

ICC tweeted the definition of karma taken from a dictionary. A picture of an England fan wearing a mask of Steve Smith crying was attached with the tweet. 

England and Australia are set to face for the final Ashes Test at The Oval in London on September 12. Australia (-133) has the best odds to win against England (+144) in the upcoming match. Check out the latest cricket odds at Betwala.
