The second Test match (India vs England 2nd Test) is being played between Team India and England.
London: The second Test between India and England is being played (India vs England 2nd Test). The match is being played at Lord’s Cricket Ground. On the fourth day of the match, England players have tried to tamper with the ball. The video is now going viral. Meanwhile, it is not clear from the video which players are doing all this. But this action by England is being opposed. Ball tampering is done to make the ball swing. (India vs England 2nd Test day 4 Mark Wood and Rory Burns spark ball tampering debate amid Lord’s Test)
Defensive attempt by Stuart Broad
Stuart Broad, England’s fast bowler, tweeted that he was trying to defend the players. “The two players in the video are Mark Wood and Rory Burns,” Brod said.
Mark and Rory were trying to get the ball off their feet. But they failed. It all happened by accident. Also this partial video is being shared. The entire video should be shown instead of just a few screenshots, Broad explained. Netizens are outraged by all this.
Meanwhile, a few years ago, Australia’s David Warner and Steve Smith had tampered with the ball. This mistake cost them dearly. The two were charged with biting the ball. So now all eyes are on whether the match official and the umpire will investigate the viral video and take appropriate action.
