Australia vs India 3rd Test: Banned Australian cricketer Steve Smith faced the heat on social media over his latest ad for Vodafone. The Australian cricketer is undoubtedly one of the best batsmen in the world. He was charged with ball-tampering earlier this year in South Africa, where Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft were caught tampering the ball to their advantage with sandpaper. The episode led to the three of them getting banned from playing for the national team. The incident shook the world of cricket, where cheating once again took center-stage. The latest ad for Vodafone shows how he made a mistake as everyone does and he moved on from there. The ad was captioned as “We all make mistakes, Steve Smith being no exception. Find out how he took ownership and moved forward.”
He has not played international cricket ever since, but recently took part in the Canada Global T20 League and has been playing grade cricket for his local club in Australia.
Here is how his latest video drew flak on social media.
Meanwhile, Australia has leveled the four-match Test series which also makes the 3rd Test at Melbourne important for both the teams. Australia will have the momentum on their side which will help them.
