The ICC took a view that the matter was dealt with at the time by umpire Nigel Llong, who ordered Smith leave the ground. No player was charged by match referee Chris Broad despite a number of heated run-ins. Gavaskar was shocked, making frank comments that have extended an acrimonious postscript to India's series-levelling win in Bangalore.
Jadeja’s seven wickets in the match, which included a crucial six for 63 in the first innings, have helped him move up one rank to reach the top position for the first time in his career.

Ravichandran Ashwin picked 6/41 as India defeated Australia by 75 runs to level four-match series 1-1 in Bangalore on Tuesday. Chasing 188 for win, Australia were all out for 112 in the fourth innings. R Ashwin broke and created more records durin g his 25th five-wicket haul in Tests. He also overtook Bishan Singh Bedi's wickets tally in the longest format.
On a pitch so dry it resembled the surface of Mars to Shane Warne, which looked unlike any Ravi Shastri said he had seen in India, it was a fast bowler who came away with the richest haul. Umesh Yadav's combination of pace and reverse swing fetched him four wickets as Australia managed 256 for 9 in Pune.
Chases can be tricky. And when you're chasing a big total under lights, the equation tends to become all the more skeptical. In their first match of 2017, a rejigged England side playing a different format, in order to erase the painful memories of the Test defeat, did whatever one could have asked of them. They put up their highest score in the country - a daunting 350/7 - and yet it wasn't enough to stop India, who on the back of match-winning centuries from skipper Virat Kohli and Kedar Jadhav, pulled off a miraculous chase to take a 1-0 lead in the series. In fact, it was the fourth-highest successful chase of all-time.
Wrestling is the new form of traditional game ‘Kushti’ which is struggling for existence due to emergence of other sports that are over-glamorised. Achievement of women wrestlers and inspirational movies based on success story of women wrestlers proved a big morale booster for girls and brought a ray of hope for desired promotion of Kushti in India.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has resigned as India’s cricket captain. He was leading the Indian team in ODIs and T20 ever since he retired from Tests on December 30, 2016.
