The Board of Control for Cricket on Thursday filed an official complaint against Australia skipper Steve Smith and Peter Handscomb with the International Cricket Council over the decision review controversy, PTI reported.

The ICC on Wednesday had refused to take any action against the allegations raised by India skipper Virat Kohli. The Indian team management had earlier approached match referee Chris Broad over the controversy that erupted during the second Test between India and Australia in Bengaluru.

“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.”

Kohli had stopped short of accusing the Australian side of cheating during a dramatic press conference following India’s 75-run series-levelling win earlier this week.

The Indian skipper had alleged that the Australian players had twice looked towards the dressing room to seek inputs while deliberating whether to take a DRS call. The controversy reached a head after umpires intervened when Smith and Handscomb were found to be looking towards the dressing room with the Australian captain given out for a leg-before in a tense second innings.

In the same statement, ICC chief executive David Richardson had said: “We would encourage both teams to focus their energies on the third Test in Ranchi next week. Ahead of that, the match referee will bring both Captains together to remind them of their responsibilities to the game.”

On Thursday, former India captain lashed out at ICC’s inaction, accusing them of treating Australia with kid gloves.
