The BCCI has withdrawn the complaint against Steven Smith and Peter Handscomb hours after lodging it with the ICC, as the aftermath of the Bengaluru Test continued to unfold at a rapid pace.

A joint statement after the ICC nudged the two board CEOs to meet constituted the second statement of peace in two days, after the world body had said on Wednesday that it was not going to pursue the DRS controversy further.

That, it is understood, came after the ICC had studied match footage and the evidence available before deciding to not press any charges against any of the Australia players or Virat Kohli.

This was communicated to both the boards, who wanted the ICC to initiate proceedings.

The BCCI wanted an investigation into their allegations that Australia sought dressing-room assistance on DRS reviews, and CA wanted action against Kohli who had made public accusations that Australia systemically manipulated DRS protocols.
