Agree.
Smith said it was a "big mistake" but added he would not stand down.
He said the team's "leadership group" had spoken about it and "thought it was a way to get an advantage".


Nice Flipping leaders!

Sad

I trust that your internal investigation resolves this fast & deal with this harshly, or it will take you guys a long time to recover from it.

There's certainly going to be a reception waiting for them when they get home, just not the sort of reception they'd be looking forward too.

Cheers.

I think there will be much "wicket" protection with all the wide's & no balls flying about :-)

Both Smith and Warner have received 12 month bans, Smith will not be eligible for a leadership roll again for 12months after returning while Warner will never be given that chance again and Bancroft received a 9 month ban.

A hot reception will be waiting for the trio at the airport when they return home this afternoon.

Cheers.

I wanted to post these links yesterday but wasn't quick enough to beat the outage.

1st off, this is not a dig at Australia...

One

Two

Three

Four

Five

...but a dig at all within the game.

This current issue came to light because a South African player felt something was going on & told the cameramen to focus on the Australian players.

Wasn't a South African player fined but received no ban for ball tampering?

If one reads all those reports, there is one underlying issue - It has been going on for years in all teams, so the question for me remains this:

WHY the constant bilge regarding Australia?

Yes there have been others caught out for ball tampering before, but this goes right against our nation's ethics and the captain of our team is suppose to be regarded 2nd only to our P.M. so we here regard this incident more like treason.

Cheers.

Can't fault you for that, but I still think the problem lies within the ICC. Former umpire John Holder also says that.

John Holder clip is the last one in this report

Well all 3 are now home. I think the only one who will recover from this will be Bancroft.

The 25-year-old has shown immense character since the scandal broke despite his nine-month suspension ruling him out of playing for Australia or in Australian first class cricket until December. An exact date of his return has not been officially released.

As Wiggo says the Australian Captain is 2nd only to the P.M here so any thing that's brings the game or the Captains honesty in to question is seriously bad .
Very dissapointed in Steve Smith

I believe that the actions of the South Africans in sledging Warners wife in the way i believe they did has a lot to do with why this happened .

Warner's wife before she was going out with Warner was busted having sex in a public place and as my pertner said you can imagine what was said by the south Africans about that which i can't say here what my partner said . Still it's not a reason to cheat but you can understand the mind set of both Warner and Smith

Even sledging can go to far as it dd in the 2nd test and that comes back to the umpires in not putting a stop to it and the ICC for not taking ball tampering serious

Great to see the Pakistan team running up to congratulate K O'B at the end of the day.
The Aussies and Saffers could learn a lot by watching such stuff - it's not all about getting in yer face and under their skin.
Ireland have done well after a shaky start. Time to get more associate members playing test cricket. Set up a two tier system. Promote real cricket. I'd love to see Scotland playing a test match.
What a follow on for their 1st test match

Nice
live cricket will also return to BBC TV for the first time in 21 years from 2020.
About time, but how long will that last?

Ouch

Smart watches being worn on the field. :-O

Smartphones? Not on our watch: ICC tells players.

he International Cricket Council (ICC) has warned players to stop wearing smartwatches during play to avoid any allegations of match-fixing, cricket’s governing body said on Friday.

Some Pakistan players were seen sporting the devices during the opening day of their first test against England at Lord’s on Thursday and were cautioned by an ICC anti-corruption officer.

"Communications devices are prohibited within the player and match officials area. No player is allowed to be in possession of or use a communications device which is connected to the internet whilst there," the ICC said in a statement here

“Smartwatches in any way connected to a phone or Wi-Fi or in any way capable of receiving communications are not allowed and as such we will be reminding players that such devices must be surrendered along with their mobile devices on arrival at the ground on match days.”

Three Test matches featuring Indian cricket team were fixed, claims Al Jazeera sting.

In the last two years, at least three Test matches featuring India have been fixed, claims a documentary on cricket corruption made by Al Jazeera’s investigative unit. The Doha-based TV channel has shared exclusive footage with Hindustan Times that argues how a Mumbai-based former Indian first-class cricketer, an Indian advertisement executive based in the UAE and members of the D-Company use their ‘connections’ in the cricket establishment and even in the International Cricket Council (ICC) to decide on the outcome of matches.

The sensational sting operation done by journalist David Harrison suggests how match fixers bribe curators, current and former cricketers to fix the outcome of sessions or an entire match. In the eye of the storm are Pakistan’s Hasan Raza (youngest to play a Test match) and three Sri Lankan internationals – Dilhara Lokuhettige, Jeevantha Kulatunga and Tharindu Mendis – who are seen heavily involved in either spot-fixing or doctoring the pitch to force a result within a specific number of days.

Also in the spotlight is Tharanga Indika, the curator of Galle Stadium who admits to doctoring pitches. It was under his supervision that Australia lost a Test in less than two-and-a-half days in August 2016 and India amassed 600 in their first innings in July 2017. Both ‘events’ were as ‘scripted by match-fixers’, the documentary suggests.
If true then nothing less than lifetime bans from all venues and huge fines will suffice for the guilty.
