A video of Australia legspinner Adam Zampa allegedly seen taking something out from his pocket and then rubbing it on the red cherry during the India innings of their ICC World Cup 2019 match at the Kennington Oval in London on Sunday has gone viral.

The video led many on social media to question whether the World Cup will see another Sandpapergate roll out.

In 2018, Cameron Bancroft, David Warner, and Steve Smith were found guilty of tampering the ball in a Test match in South Africa. Bancroft was banned for nine months, while Smith and Warner were handed 12-month bans. The duo returned in time for the World Cup which has raised the defending champion’ chances at the global showpiece event.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old Zampa remained wicketless against India as he turned out to be expensive giving 50 runs in six overs he bowled.

Zampa was first introduced in the 12th over after the first powerplay and then in the middle overs. On a surface that assisted the batsmen, Zampa was taken to the cleaners from the start.
