Allan Border, enraged after the Nagpur defeat, said to Smith, “What do you do like a fool?”

The first match of the 4-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test series between India vs Australia was played at Nagpur.. On the strength of an excellent team performance, the host Indian team ended the match on the third day itself. India won the match by an innings and 132 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the series. After this humiliating defeat, former Australian captain and after whom the series is played, Alan Border was seen furious.

Everyone expected the Australian team to do well on this tour. However, in the very first match, the Australian team showed a very irresponsible game. Fearing spin on a good pitch, their batsmen failed miserably as the Australians were bowled out for just 177 in the first innings. After that, in the second innings, the Australian team’s performance deteriorated further. Australia’s innings collapsed on just 91 runs against the Indian spinners.

The Australian batsmen were very scared of the Indian spinners in this match. They could not deal with the straight balls of the bowlers either. At the same time, Australia’s most experienced batsman, Steve Smith, was often seen giving thumbs up to the bowler after a catch. At his very act, Border was enraged.

Speaking to the broadcast channel, Border said,

“The bowler bowls outside the off stump and you give him the thumb. How can you show thumbs up when he’s cheating on you? It’s very bad. What could be more absurd than this?”

Although Border did not name Smith, the warning was meant for him. Nevertheless, Smith was Australia’s most successful batsman in the match. He scored 37 runs in the first innings. So, he remained unbeaten in the second innings.
