Cricketers are always under the intense scrutiny of the cameras on or off the field. There are multiple cameras on them which catch their each and every move and it was one such cameraman who caught Cameron Bancroft putting sandpaper on the ball in the Cape Town Test.
Australia is currently engaged in an ODI series against Pakistan in UAE and the first match of the series was played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. This series is the last international engagement for the Australian team before the World Cup 2019 begins in England from May 30. For Pakistan however, there is still one more ODI series to go, against England in early May.
Adam Zampa and Marcus Stoinis engage in PDA
While the Australian team was in the middle, batting to chase down the Pakistani score of 280, the remaining members of the team were enjoying it in the dressing room. The Australian players are known to have some fun with the camera which captures the happenings in the change room and some of the well-known pranksters take advantage of it, which was evident in Big Bash League also.
Here too, Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa, who was also sitting in the dressing room, decided to have some fun and started engaging in some display of affection. Zampa was touching Stoinis’ ear and Stoinis playfully responds.
Here’s the video:

Australia beats Pakistan in the first ODI
Pakistan had put 280 runs on the board batting first thanks to a maiden ODI century by Haris Sohail, who made 101* and a couple of forties from Shan Masood and Umar Akmal. Nathan Coulter-Nile picked 2/61, while Jhye Richardson, Nathan Lyon, and Glenn Maxwell picked a wicket each.
In reply, Usman Khawaja made 24, but then Aaron Finch made 116 and Shaun Marsh made 91 and they added 172 runs for the second wicket and took Australia to the win by 8 wickets in hand. It was a good sign for the Australian team as Aaron Finch had struggled to score runs against India, both in Australia and away. Him scoring a brilliant century bodes well for his confidence going into the World Cup.
