English crowd criticized for jeering Aussie duo

The English fans did not hide their ill feeling towards Australia’s David Warner and Steve Smith as the Lord’s crowd continually resorted to jeering the two star batsmen. Fans have been severe on the Aussie duo, who were disgraced last year for their involvement in the ball-tampering saga and were banned for 12 months each by Cricket Australia (CA).

While their ban expired right at the cusp of the World Cup, it does not look like fans especially the English crowd has accepted them back as they have repeatedly given them a hostile reception.

Although Smith and Warner did not find much support during their side’s thumping win over England, they found quite a lot of backing on Twitter, where online users criticized the English fans for their rude and unsportsmanlike behavior.
