Australia batsman Peter Handscomb admitted on Tuesday that he had asked Steve Smith to check with the dressing room after being declared leg-before-wicket in Australia’s second innings in the Bengaluru Test and said that it was his fault.
Handscomb took to Twitter to defend his captain and take the blame for the entire incident. The Australian batsman said that he did not know the rules concerning the Decision Review System referral.
“I referred Smudga (Smith) to look at the box... My fault and was unaware of the rule. Shouldn’t take anything away from what was an amazing game!,” wrote the batsman, after Australia lost the Test by 75 runs.
