Even after serving 12 months of ban by the CA, coach Justin Langer’s plea not to boo them ahead of the World Cup, Steve Smith and David Warner cannot seem to catch a break. 


As the Aussies opened their World Cup campaign against Afghanistan in County Ground in Bristol, the fans booed and taunted them for the infamous ‘sandpaper-ball tampering’ incident. 

Even as Warner scored a match-winning 89, his presence wasn’t much appreciated by the crowd, who on several occasions chanted against Warner for his role in the Sandpaper Gate. 

Some fans even came dressed as sandpaper to mock and taunt the disgraced Australian cricketers. 


At this point, we can just assume that those were fans of the English cricket team, the traditional rivals of the Australians. 


And they say football fans are savage!
