Australian skipper Steve Smith has been in some way or the other involved in the all the controversies that have taken place in the just concluded Border-Gavaskar series. Starting from the Bengaluru ‘Brain fade’ incident to the ‘Patrick Farhart’ mocking allegations, Smith has been the centre of all the heated exchanges with opposition skipper Virat Kohli. The allegations flew thick and fast during the series but as of now, everything has got over with the conclusion of the fourth and the final Test.

It’s been a long-standing tradition among cricketing teams to celebrate the end of a series with a friendly round of beer. This usually takes place among the team members but it is also not uncommon to see opposition player being invited to be a part of the causal post-series celebration.

Australia skipper Steve Smith also tried doing something similar today as both teams shook hands with each other after the match. Controversies aside, the series has been a fiercely contested event which has drained every bit of energy from both the sides.  So, in order to give a proper end to the wonderful series, Steve Smith offered India’s stand-in skipper a request to join the Indian players for a beer in the dressing rooms.

The new was broken by Sports commentator, Allister Nicholson, who tweeted about it. He writes: “Steve Smith just told me he asked Rahane if the Aussies can join India for a beer in the dressing rooms. The right way to end it.”

As Allister says, it was a right way to end the series as the player these often bond over a lot of things throughout the years, including the Indian Premier League which is set to begin in a matter of few days. Therefore, it was nice to see Smith call a truce and move ahead.
