Great Britain's sports minister Nigel Adams has described the booing of Australian Steve Smith during the Ashes series as 'distasteful' and says the batsman has served his punishment for his part in last year's ball-tampering scandal.

Smith and David Warner served 12-month bans for their roles in the scandal during the Test series in South Africa last year. 

Cameron Bancroft was also banned for nine months.
