Australia's Pat Cummins in action at the Oval

Dhawan, hero of India's win over Australia in the ICC World Cup 2019 on Sunday, played through pain after being hit on the thumb by a rising delivery from pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile.

Both Smith and Warner have been jeered since they landed in England, and the former captain had a particularly tough time fielding near the Oval's Vauxhall End boundary when a section of the predominantly Indian crowd started chanting "Cheater!"

Some very odd things happened to Australia yesterday: from Virat Kohli urging his supporters not to boo Steve Smith, to bails that won't budge, to a David Warner half-century so slow that it killed his team's chances of winning the game.

Kohli, who was batting as Smith fielded in the deep, walked towards the Indian crowd and motioned for them to applaud instead of booing him.

'What's happened has happened like long back, the guy is back, he's trying to play well for his side, ' Kohli said after the game.

Zampa's team mates Steve Smith and David Warner have just returned to the national setup after serving 12-month bans for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa early previous year.

"We've had issues in the past". "So just because there's so many Indian fans here, I just didn't want them to set a bad example, to be honest, because he didn't do anything to be booed in my opinion. On another day a couple would have cleared the fence or missed the fielders and we'd have been away", said Maxwell, who eventually holed out to nemesis Yuzvendra Chahal as the run rate rooted itself in double digits. I know. I was there. He's just playing cricket.

"When you're bowling to world class players and they get on top of you early, it can be quite hard to come back, and for us not to be able to get wickets through that period as well, through the middle overs, he (Zampa) never had the chance to really bowl at a new batter a hell of a lot", Finch said.

India plays against New Zealand on Thursday.
