    best bowling attack in the world, Clarke is smoking something

    PS: the reason he's pissed at Smith is because he got caught

    The ICC have a challenging job at their hands now because it is Australia out of all countries. Leniency would mean serious question marks over the way the game is handled.

    Very lenient penalty. Nobody cared to ask who is in the leadership group?

    You get a one game ban for slow overrate not this.

    Lehman should get a fine for bringing the game into disrepute.

    He is captain for this match. Smith only stepped down for remainder of current match unless CA strip him of captaincy and impose their own punishment.

    lol, pakistani fans taking the moral high ground on ball tampering.

    think 1 test is a fair ban, icc should come down on it hard enough to force players to be more discreet.

    discreet ball tampering is good for test cricket.

    They should block his NOC to play in the IPL. Hit him where it hurts the most. Some match fee fine and a one test ban just doesn't cut it. That's the punishment for slow over rate, not for an offense of this magnitude.

    Why are they going after Warner though? In that case, the entire "leadership team" Smith referred to in the press conference should be punished. But nobody cared to ask him who all were the ones that took this decision.

    Smith's press conference summary:

    We are sorry that we got caught. The entire team and the leadership took this decision. We won't do this again and I won't step down as captain.

    :D

    I belive it wasn’t his fault, the senior players probably asked him to tamper so he obliged, possibly without questioning the idea.

    Double standards probably, I belive Amir shouldn’t have had a five year ban as well, Match fixing has always been more serious than Ball tampering, Amir should have been punished but it was extremely harsh to give him five years and a small prison sentence.

    I can't even imagine what would've happened had it done by my boys. People will be calling for their heads, ocean would've start boiling and the sky would be falling if they aren't banned for life or at least for 5 years. But nothing will happen here because,
    A) While boys are caught
    B) Cricket Australia stronger than PCB.

    Smith, Bancroft and Warner will get away with it with only a game ban or simply by stepping down from their positions.
