Smith lost his wicket soon after a live chat with  TV commentators, triggering debate if the technology was doing more harm than good to the game.
     
"He gets pretty emotional out there, doesn't he?. I don't think you need to do that kind of thing when someone gets out. It's fine to have a little bit of banter when you're out in
the field, but when someone is out I don't think that's really on," Smith told Fox Sports. The Test skipper blamed poor shot selection for his dismissal rather than indulging in a discussion with the commentators.

"It [the commentary] was on at the time, but for me it was just a bad shot. I tried to chip one over the top for two rather than trying to hit him for four or six. It was my fault and I got to do better next time," he said.
     
While Kohli's gesture suggested that he wasn't impressed with Smith's chatter, even fans seemed to believe that the live mic-chat led to the Australian batsman's dismissal as the hosts lost the match by 37 runs. Social media was abuzz with reactions to Smith's chat and even analysts denounced technology's interference in the game.
