No action to be taken against Steve Smith or Virat Kohli, says ICC

On Wednesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided not to take any action against the Australian captain Steve Smith or his Indian counterpart Virat Kohli as a follow-up to the issue related to Smith seeking advice from the Aussie dressing room after being adjudged leg-before wicket on the 4th day of the second Test in Bengaluru.

“The ICC has confirmed that no charges have been laid against any player under the ICC Code of Conduct following the second Test match between India and Australia in Bengaluru,” the ICC statement read.

“Specifically in relation to Steve Smith and Virat Kohli, the ICC has considered both incidents in the context of this match and concluded it will be taking no further action against either player,” it added.

However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), is unhappy with the decision and has decided to appeal on Thursday.
