India v Australia: BCCI to withdraw complaint after tensions in Bangalore

India will withdraw a complaint to the International Cricket Council over Australia’s conduct during the second Test in Bangalore this week. Australia captain Steve Smith was seen looking up to his side’s dressing room when pondering whether to ask for a review after he was given out.

That sparked a war of words, although the ICC said it would not be taking any further action against either side. “We have resolved to restore focus on the series,” a joint statement read.

“CEO of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Mr Rahul Johri, and CEO of Cricket Australia Mr James Sutherland met at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai today.

“In discussing the matters at length, they agreed the importance of bringing back the focus to the game and the much anticipated next Test match in Ranchi.”(BBC,2017).
