On day 4 of the second Test match between India and Australia, played in Bengaluru, Indian speedster Umesh bowled a grubber and trapped Australian captain Steve Smith in front of the wickets.
The umpire Nigel Llong immediately upheld a loud appeal by India and gave the batsman out.Smith walked down the pitch to discuss with his partner Peter Handscomb before opting for the DRS.
But, all the drama in the match started when Smith looked up at the dressing-room for help with the referral. According to rules, players are not allowed to seek external help – they are only allowed to consult their batting partners at the other end.
It was then, the Twitteratis took at the dig at the Aussie skipper for his unfair attitude of playing the game.
Here are some of the Twitter trolls:

Steve Smith was looking at the pavilion for an advice on DRS, as someone told him that Dhoni is sitting in the pavilion#INDvsAUS

That behavior of Steve Smith deserves a punishment. Looking at dressing room for DRS review help. Cheating the law! #INDvAUS

Steve Smith needs to understand that DRS is decision review system and not dressing room review system. #INDvsAUS

While playing gully cricket, I used to ask even the people in balcony before leaving the crease. Today Steve Smith did the same#INDvsAUS
