Steve Waugh wants ICC to intervene and bring finality to the issue regarding Steven Smith (above) during 2nd Test against India IANS

New Delhi: A “brain fade” moment led to Steven Smith seeking dressing advice for a DRS referral in the second Test against India and his word should be taken at face value, feels former Australia captain Steve Waugh. “It was a fantastic Test match. It’s a shame we are focussing on one incident. I would go with what Steve has said. I would take him on face value. The best part was umpires stepped in and stopped at then and there. Looking back Smith will be embarrassed and must have learnt a lesson,” Waugh told mediapersons at a promotional event on Wednesday. Full cricket scorecard: India vs Australia, 2nd Test at Bengaluru

However he wants ICC to intervene and bring finality to the issue. “Someone from ICC needs to look into the matter and bring it to a finality. Look we need to move on. Probably he would be cautioned. It was a high intensity game,” said Waugh. Meanwhile, Australia coach Darren Lehmann on Wednesday dismissed Virat Kohli s allegation that his team repeatedly sought DRS inputs from the dressing room, insisting that the second Test was played the right way. Never, ever, ever. Very surprised to hear that, but it s their opinion, said Lehmann when the Australian media asked him about Kohli s controversial claims post India s series levelling win in Bengaluru.

He [Kohli] has his opinion and we have ours, but at the end of the day we play the game the right way. We ve changed the way we want to play, we ve obviously changed the side and we re a younger side so I m pretty pleased with the way we do things now. We ve never done any of that, so we ll just get on with the next game, said the coach further.
