Broad brands Australians hypocrites as ball-tampering row erupts

Smith won't step down CA board to meet

Steve Smith has admitted to agreeing to tamper the ball on-field for unfair advantage during the day 3 of the third Test in Cape Town against South Africa.

Smith has also been fined 100% of his match fee while Bancroft, who was caught on camera trying to change the condition of the ball, received a 75 per cent fine and was handed three demerit points.

The incident that led to the charges being laid took place during South Africa's innings on Saturday afternoon when Bancroft was seen on television holding a foreign object while rubbing the ball, before hiding the object in his pocket, then inside his pants.

Smith's suggestion that it was him and the so-called "leadership group" who cooked up the ploy was amended behind the scenes on Sunday as Cricket Australia clarified that it was "senior players" who were instead behind it.

Morne Morkel took five wickets as Australia collapsed in the wake of the ball-tampering controversy and South Africa cruised to a 322-run victory on day four of the third Test at Cape Town.

"The game needs to have a hard look at itself".

"In addition and most importantly member countries need to show more accountability for their teams' conduct". ".It's wrong! It is not only against the spirit of the game, but is so far the other side of the laws of the game, it's nudging up against the murder of cricket". "We have to raise the bar across all areas".

David Warner was more recently sanctioned for an enraged off-field confrontation with Quinton de Kock, while Nathan Lyon copped a fine for his "ball drop" send-off of AB de Villiers. In what must surely be the most dramatic and explosive post-day press briefing in cricketing history, Aussie rookie, Cameron Bancroft, admitted to attempting to change the condition of the match ball.

Steven Smith, Australia's captain, has been suspended for one Test match by the International Cricket Council, and will miss his team's final Test against South Africa.

"You have to remember that this Australia team are so friendless in cricket because of the way they've carried on, and especially Warner", he told BBC 5 Live.

Du Plessis, generally forthright in his dealings with the media, was relatively diplomatic when asked whether Smith cheated.

Bancroft told reporters he "panicked" when he realized his tampering had been spotted on camera, and shoved the yellow tape that he'd pressed against the ball down his pants.

"There are many aspects to this cheating, the worst of crimes in the eyes of most players and fans", he wrote, asking: "Why did the leadership group believe, with such a strong bowling attack, they needed to cheat?" If Australia's best cricketers don't have either the wisdom to realise the depth of their wrong-doing, the seriousness of their betrayal of the unconditional support they get, or the conscience to do the right thing, then Cricket Australia must step in.

These and more questions of rampant ill-tempered player behaviour and where to draw the line will continue to haunt the sport, which has suffered another body blow after the match-fixing saga nearly two decades ago damaged its very foundations.

The administrator, though, added this was a "matter of serious concern for all of us". He added that he had spoken to CA authorities and requested them to take "decisive action".
