Cricket Australia's charges indicate sandpaper used in ball-tampering

  • CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRICA- MARCH 24 Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft  of Australia during day 3 of the 3rd Sunfoil Test match between South Africa and Australia at PPC Newlands

He then offered grave and remorseful reflections on the episode and the consequences for the team.

A Cricket Australia investigation found the trio were the only ones who knew of the plan, which was concocted during the lunch break and carried out by young fielder Bancroft, who had played just eight Test matches.

Following the announcement, Cricket Australia has appointed wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Paine as the Test captain on full-time basis. "It's very obvious ball tampering is considered cheating, not everyone does it, but changing the condition of the ball has happened numerous time", Clark said.

"A focused and balanced perspective is needed in the condemnation on those involved in this, with a clear and critical consideration to the social impact and mental health of all players", Waugh wrote on his official Facebook page, which was also uploaded by Cricket Australia. "So It's hard to forgive them for putting something on us that we haven't done".

"We do respect the opposition but we push the boundaries on the ground. I want to also apologize to cricket South Africa and South African fans that this issue has overshadowed what otherwise should have been a wonderful series". The whole group's upset and we understand the enormity of it and the public perception.

"LG Australia will always look to work with ambassadors that share our core brand values and we take these relationships incredibly seriously to ensure we put our customers, employees and stakeholders first".

BREAKING Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are being informed of their "significant sanctions" in the team hotel right now. "I was obviously straight on the walkie-talkie and said something to Peter [Handscomb]", Lehmann said.

The incident took place on the third day of the third Test on March 24 in Cape Town. Foreign objects - such as strips of tape / sandpaper or bottle tops should certainly not be allowed, along with willfully damaging or gouging the ball with fingernails.

In one intriguing detail, CA said that Bancroft used sandpaper on the ball to rough it up. "Reverse swing obviously plays a big part in South Africa, the way the wickets have been", he said.

"We're talking about a grass-covered wicket, where you have to do something else to alter the shape, to alter the roughness of the ball on the one side".

As Smith began his long journey home, Lehmann reflected on what the team had lost.

"They have made a grave mistake, but they are not bad people", Lehmann said.

With their heroes being humbled, junior players and their families and friends are having their versions of the "Say it ain't so?" moment. I feel for him.

But they can come back from this, and they will. Disappointed, embarrassed, hurt for the game.

"I've spoken to all of the three players before they left".

"You could tell they were doing something that shouldn't be done", he said.

All three have been sent home but can appeal against the sanctions, with batsmen Joe Burns, Matthew Renshaw and Glenn Maxwell called up as replacements for the last game of the series.

"With what these players will lose out on I am sure the shock wave will do its job".
