This time it’s the Bollywood star and son of India’s legendary cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi, Angad Bedi.

The whole incident came into the reckoning when Cameron Bancroft was caught tampering the ball. Match referee and the on-field umpires then spoke to the Australian captain and Bancroft, and they both agreed to the accusation.

Smith later confessed that the act was a pre-meditated plan of the leadership group.

They accepted that they were fully aware of Bancroft’s act on the field.

Ever since the news of his confession has come out, several former cricketers have had their say on the issue. Now ‘Tiger Zinda hai’ star said that the game is no more a ‘Gentleman’s game’.

“Whatever has happened is not correct because when you are representing your country as a captain, everybody looks up to you.

“Not just in our country, but in the entire world where cricket is played, they are worshipped, so it is important for them to become a fine ambassador of the game. They should set an example.”

“Whatever has happened is a bit sad, but Steve Smith has been a phenomenal player. However, I think it was important to set an example because sports should not be taken lightly as kids look up to the sports stars.”

When asked whether he would want a film to be made on his father’s life, Angad said,

“I think he is such a great personality that the more you write on him; it will be less because he has led his life very openly and fearlessly.”

“It is also important for a person who is making a film to understand how cricketers led their life in those times. Back then, cricket was a gentleman’s game. Unfortunately not anymore. So I just feel that if you bring back that era through a film, the future generation will learn from it.”
