Adam Zampa has been accused of ball-tampering by cricket fans who raised questions about the Australia spin bowler's actions during Sunday's 36-run defeat to India in the Cricket World Cup.

Zampa was seen to remove an item from his pocket and pass it between his hands while holding the ball during the match at The Oval.

The incident occurred a little over a year after then Australia captain Steven Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft colluded to alter the condition of a ball in a Test match against South Africa in Cape Town.

Bancroft was subsequently banned from cricket for ninth months, while Smith and Warner - who are now back in the Australia team - both received 12-month bans.
