Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa has been in the news for all the wrong reasons after a video of him rubbing the ball has gone viral. The bowler was seen putting his hands in his pocket before rubbing them onto the ball.
Many fans have raised suspicions on the actions of the bowler as they feel that Zampa was rubbing his hands with something inside his pocket in order to tamper with the condition of the ball.
However, former English batsman Kevin Pietersen has come out in support of the leggie as he has said that almost everybody uses hand warmers while playing cricket in the cold weather of England as it becomes quite difficult to keep the hands warm.
He has said that Zampa seemed quite lazy as he kept his hands in the pockets all the time, urging everyone to not make a big deal out of it as he did not do anything suspicious.
