Oh things are moving at a fast pace.
best bowling attack in the world, Clarke is smoking something
PS: the reason he's pissed at Smith is because he got caught
yes, English media mA justifying their Ashes molesting
I heard putting sugar on a ball makes the rise of sugar level in the ball and makes it swing more
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.
Wow, so this has been happening for a long time then. They were bound to get caught one day.
LOL Smith - small fine and 1 test ban
Bancroft - small fine and 3 demerit points
WHAT A JOKE
Very lenient penalty. Nobody cared to ask who is in the leadership group?
lmao 1 game only
Lol white privilege guys.
You get a one game ban for slow overrate not this.
Lehman should get a fine for bringing the game into disrepute.
Just 1 test ban on Smith. Double standards shown yet again by ICC
Looking On the bright side Tim Paine is the new captain for Australia.
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.
He won’t captain Australia again will Smith.
World XI that visited Pakistan contained the Saffer captain and Aus captain.
Ridiculously light punishments....
What they did was worse than Butt and Amir....

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.
Don't worry. CA is considering handing him a life ban.
That would be harsh lol.
Feels good to see arrogant Aussies getting disgraced
Not worthy of a life ban , stripping of captaincy would be enough
Life ban would be too harsh man. Should disgrace them for not appointing them to any position of authority and put some financial penalty and a few games ban.
6 months to a year ban from all cricket and no more captaincy would be appropriate.
Life ban would be torture for Smith and all the fans who want to see his great batting skills
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.
no ban or fine for Bancroft lol
The 'leadership group' should be a term added to cricket dictionary.
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.
He has been fined 75% match fee?
yeah that's there, talking about ban
Smith’s press conference is hilarious , just run of the mill violation, I won’t do it again
Very lenient punishments.
There shouldn’t be a ban or fine for Bancroft.
I belive it wasn’t his fault, the senior players probably asked him to tamper so he obliged, possibly without questioning the idea.
Then why did Amit get a 5 year ban from ICC ?
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.
