The whole cricket world is criticizing the ball tampering incident done by Australian skipper Steve Smith. Well, the action has been taken and the ICC has put a one-match ban on the cricketer. Even the Australian board has taken the action and removed Steve Smith from the captaincy from last two remaining matches.
However, the activity of ball tampering is a very strong illegal in ICC rule book, but ICC still is very light towards Australian skipper. This act of ICC has put them in the limelight for showing the soft corner towards the Australian.
First, the Indian team bowler Harbhajan Singh slammed ICC for discrimination between his incident and this incident. Harbhajan clearly said that he was banned out for the series, but despite that both the cricketers Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft have accepted their activity ICC is too cool with them.
wow @ICC wow. Great treatment nd FairPlay. No ban for Bancroft with all the evidences whereas 6 of us were banned for excessive appealing in South Africa 2001 without any evidence and Remember Sydney 2008? Not found guilty and banned for 3 matches.different people different rules— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) March 25, 2018
Michael Clarke says Smith should be forgiven because he’s a great guy with a heart of gold... unlike all the opposing team members the Aussies have cheered being banned.! 🙄🔫#AussieCheats— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) March 26, 2018

This “confession” & “regret” #BallTampering is so qualified with them saying it didn’t change the condition of the ball and the umpires didn’t find anything wrong with it.

Now the Indian media and Twitter people have also started slamming ICC and cricketers in their hilarious way. Some even have slammed ICC for discrimination in between Kagiso Rabada and Steve Smith, as for black-white theory.
