There seems to be no end to the controversies surrounding the India-Australia Test series. It all began when Indian skipper Virat Kohli accused Australia captain  Steve Smith of seeking help from the dressing room before using the DRS. The two players went on to use their press briefings to exchange barbs directed at each other.  The Australian media turned up the heat after the third Test match between India and Australia ended in a draw, with one publication criticising Kohli and his “Donald Trump-like contempt for the truth”. While many have had a go at the report for making the comparison, it was veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan tweet that won all-round applause.
