Australia skipper Steve Smith was seen looking up to his side’s dressing room when pondering whether to ask for a review after he was given out lbw.
India captain Virat Kohli said Smith had “crossed the line”.
The International Cricket Council confirmed no action would be taken against either captain.
Sutherland said of Smith: “We have every faith there was no ill-intent in his actions. Steve’s an outstanding person.”
Smith, 27, admitted his error and described it as “a bit of brain-fade”.
But the matter went too far recently when Smith’s girl friend asked him to marry her. Smith was bit confused and looked at the dressing room for help from his colleagues.
His girl friend dint take it too well and accused Smith of not playing within the spirit of the relationship game just like Kohli accused him of not playing within the spirit of cricket.
