    LONDON: Australian cricket has once again engulfed in allegations of ball-tempering when on Sunday spinner Adam Zampa was caught on camera putting his hand into his pocket and then rubbing the ball several times.

    A video of Zampa went viral on social media during India match at The Oval forcing the Aussie captain Aaron Finch to address the matter in post-match news conference.

    The incident came just a year after Australia stars Warner and Steve Smith, as well as team-mate Cameron Bancroft were banned for their roles in a ball-tampering scheme during a Test in South Africa.

    Finch insisted Zampa was using hand-warmers he had put in his pocket, as he apparently does for every match.

    "I haven’t seen the photos, so I can’t comment on them. I know for a fact he has hand warmers in his pocket. He has them in every single game he plays," Finch said.

    Is this for real? How could umpires/officials not take notice of such action?

    In the video its obvious that he had something in his pocket and then he holds the ball. It might not be anything, but in the past we have seen incidents where bowlers had stuffs in their pockets.

    It’s cold in June. Hence why you have all these rainy games.

    If a cricketer requires hand warmers in June when temperatures are around 65 to 70 F in England, then he should rather quit cricket and play indoor video games.

    It looked like his underwear had got stuck and needed readjusting.

    Hand warmers for his bowling hand probably (as opposed to feeling cold so doing it to feel warmer). Cold bowling hand no good.
