Australia skipper Aaron Finch, however, rubbished the claims and said, Adam Zampa had hand warmers in his pocket and he has them during every match.

"I haven't seen the photos, but I know that he has hand warmers in his pocket," Australia's captain Aaron Finch said.

"He has them every single game he plays.

"I honestly haven't seen them (the images), so I can't comment too much on it. But I know for a fact that he has hand warmers every game."

According to Cricket Australia, Zampa has often been seen using the hand warmers during the Big Bash games.

Following the claims, Zampa was not put under any official investigation and the on field umpires did not raise any concerns.
