From the replays it did look like Handscomb was pointing Smith towards the dressing room.

Doubt this was a isolated incident, maybe the cameras need to focus more on the players before they review to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again.

The umpire stepped in pretty quick I've just watched the highlights.Smith is the captain he must know you can't refer to the dressing room and expect the on field umpires not to step in.

Good from the umpires on the field , poor from Smith thou. Shaun marsh got a shocker that was missing by miles must of been worth a review?

Good match, good comeback by India and all set for the third test  :)

Great fightback from India. I feel they have the edge going into the 3rd match now- probably another big spinning wicket.

Smith's actions should be regarded as cheating? I mean he clearly looked up at the dressing room and made a gesture with his hands. Nigel did interrupt immediately though and credit to him. The speed at which he interrupted suggests that he probably was was warned by Kohli? I'm not Indian but I think this issue shouldn't be taken lightly- there should be some form of punishment if Smith is found guilty.

I would regard this as momentary lapse of judgement. From the video it looks like Handscomb pointed Smith to look up and that's what he did. As soon as Nigel interrupted he walked away without asking any questions. So i don't think there was an intention to cheat but at the heat of the moment, he seems to have brushed the line but didn't cross it. Kohli mentioned in the press that Starc was looking up to dressing room during Australian bowling for certain reviews. This might have prompted Nigel to walk up and stop Smith, during batting, before something goes out of control.

For what its worth .. i think the series is now on fire ! Aussies played nice in the press conference before and after first test - crediting indian bowlers, ensuring not to rub Kohli on the wrong side. Now the spark has started somewhere and it has picked up momentum. Game on !!!!

Gotta feel for Shaun Marsh, that was a shocker.

Smith probably saving DRS for himself.

Kohli in his answers to the press was very clear that this (looking at the gallery) was going for 3 days and not a brain fade. Smith has a lot going for himself personally and the team as well, there is no need for this.

Irrespective of which team one supports, the series is setup nicely for the 3rd and 4th tests...Even an Indian fan would find the current scenario much more interesting than the previous tours where the Indians were easily running through all teams making it quite boring.  In Starc, Hazlewood, Lyon and SOK, Aussies have quality and variety to pose a threat on any kind of pitch that comes up next..

You feel once Warner Smith and Renshaw are out that a collapse looks ominous.

Shaun Marsh is very good vs spin but not as comfortable vs seam. Handscomb looks good but others are sitting ducks barring the odd cameo from Starc.

All this bickering is pure drama. Watch after 30 days .. At IPL you will see a pic of Kohli-Starc smiling in RCB training and Smith & Ashwin planning their attack for Pune  :D :D :D

Starc is not playing this year's IPL.

Mitch Marsh on his way home with an injury. Does that mean Agar or Maxwell in for the next text?

Convenient for Mitchy Marsh to have an "injury now"

Poor guy, has no luck.

Expect AUS to be rickrolled hard next test now just like when he was dropped during last ashes for Shaun Marsh and AUS proceeded to get demolished while Broady took 8 for 15.

Then he was dropped for the Hobart test vs SAF, we all know what happened next.

Whoever replaces him seems to have a curse. Ferguson had 1 and 0 or something and Shaun Marsh had a pair I think?

For those who have written the Aussies off already you are crazy. This isn't the England team who went and played India on very good cricket pitches only to get spanked. This Aussie team has showed some fight this series on some very difficult batting tracks and on a track like those prepared for England this Aussie team would be far better equipped to take on the Indians

But then a 'one-eyed Jackaroo' like you would say that :)

Come to think of it, is a 'one-eyed Jackaroo' a euphemism?
