TV📺 Network Channel 9⃣'s live chat with the players using an on field mic has come under heavy fire😳 after Steven Smith's dismissal in the first T20 between 🇮🇳 & Australia. Smith was busy answering the questions posed by commentators💬 in the 9⃣th over of the chase of 🇮🇳's 188, when Australia were in a strong position💪. Unfortunately, just as he was talking to the commentators, he misjudged an innocuous Jadeja delivery, spooning a catch to Kohli who then proceeded to give him a send off😠 indicating that he was talking too much😅. Australia then lost their way after & lost the match🙆. Social media💻 exploded soon after, with many fans blaming the on field chat for Smith's loss in concentration😠. Aussie opener David Warner though came out in support👍 of the TV channel opining that it was the batsman's responsibility to be ready before a ball is bowled.
