Trolling Continues Against Warner and Smith, Fans Dress up as Sandpaper

Monday, June 3, 2019 • Common Sport News Comments

In the match that took place between Australia and Afghanistan on Saturday, batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner were trolled yet again. Cricket fans dressed up as sandpaper and held a cardboard cutout of a ball, depicting the ball tampering incident that took place in 2018. Coach Justin Langer had requested fans not to engage in mocking and booing. He had said: “I will be disappointed any day if any cricketer is booed on a cricket ground. Regardless of what country they play for. It is not the spirit that any of us like to see.” 

Despite being booed from the moment he stepped in, Warner managed to prove valuable for his team scoring 89 from 114 balls. English cricketer Michael Vaughan had also voiced his opinion against the matter, suggesting that the booing should be put to an end by fans.
