Fans Trying to Give Evidence (Which Has Little Substance)
Whats going on with Zampa ? He is frequently putting his right hand in his pocket.

Zampa had a bad day at office as he was milked for 50 runs in just six overs and remained wicketless in the match. But there is little to prove that Zampa did something wrong. However, the allegations on Zampa brought back memories of "Sandpaper gate" involving David Warner and Steve Smith. The issue raised a storm in the world of Cricket and both Warner and Smith faced a one-year ban following the incident. Both Smith and Warner also faced booing after they were batting together during Australia's match against Afghanistan, following their return to one-day international cricket following the ban.
