Symonds in fresh on-field fracas

Andrew Symonds had a jibe with Ishant Sharma in the Sydney ODI

It’s controversy time. It’s once again the SCG. This time too it’s Andrew Symonds.

In the Australian innings of 317, the Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds made a quick fire 59. Just when he was looking dangerous he was dismissed by Indian rising star Ishant Sharma as Symonds was foxed by a slower delivery.

In a very unsportsmanlike like behaviour Symonds first reacted to his dismissal after which Ishant Sharma retaliated by showing Symonds his way back to the pavilion. Soon, Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who was at the non-striker’s end, was believed to have told the umpire to talk to Team India regarding Ishant’s gesture. Umpire Darly Harper was seen doing just that. Soon enough, Darly Harper was seen having a word with Dhoni and his men.

This is not the first time that Symonds has been involved in a controversy. It was Symonds-Bhajji controversy that took centre stage four weeks ago at the very same venue.
