Peter Siddle Slams Cheat Comment About Steve Smith

Steve Harmison said that Steve Smith will always be remembered for the ball-tampering scandal in 2018

Australia pacer Peter Siddle backed Steve Smith following a comment made by Steve Harmison. The former English first-class cricketer said that whatever Smith does, people will always remember his cheating scandal in South Africa. In 2018, Smith along with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were suspended due to ball-tampering scandal that took place during a Test match in Cape Town.

Siddle said that Harmison’s comment is laughable. He talked about how some England players admitted to ball-tampering during the 2005 Ashes. 

‘It’s more of a laugh than anything because we know some stories about what has gone on in the past. A couple of his teammates from back then put out books since the ‘05 Ashes and talked about sugar-coating the cricket ball to get reverse swing in that series’,

‘That’s the irony in all that, that he actually used the word sugar-coat when two of his teammates have talked about mints and different things to put on the ball. It actually comes back on him’, Siddle said.

Steve Smith is the most-talked-about player since the beginning of the Ashes 2019. In the fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford, he scored two hundred and an 85 which helped the team win. Australia retained the Ashes urn in England for the first time since 2001. Smith is now the top batsman in the ICC Test Rankings, surpassing Indian skipper Virat Kohli. 

The final Ashes Test will take place today at The Oval. The odds are for Australia (-140.85) to win against England (+120). Check out the latest cricket odds at Betwala.
