In 1948 we had the invincibles. 70 years later Steve Smiths side are the disgraceful deplorables.

His and his teams reputation is in tatters.

Steve Smith claiming it is the first time they have ever done it.

Where the kiss have I heard that before ?

Smith must resign along with the so called ''leadership group'' who came up with the plan. 

Smith's excuse that they were under pressure and frustrated by SA dominance of them, and cheated because of it is pathetic. 

Was Boof in on or know about this? If so, he must go also.

Massive cleanout coming if CA has any untampered with balls at all.

Very dark day for Australian cricket.

Lehmann and Smith will see this as an issue at the selection table. They need to pick players who you can’t see cheating.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was found guilty of ball tampering by the ICC for using mints to alter the condition of the ball, but was cleared to play the next match

Sachin Tendulkar was fined 75 per cent of his match fee and suspended for one Test after the match referee Mike Denness alleged that he had tampered the ball. While TV cameras showed Tendulkar working on the seam of the ball during a Test match

England captain Michael Atherton was fined 2,000 pounds after TV pictures appeared to show him putting his hand into his pocket and then applying an illegal substance to the ball.

This isnt just the action of what is actually a talented team, trying to wrongfully gain advantage, this was the action of a team with money on the line.
There needs to be a thorough thorough investigation into Betting Activity around this Test match,

This was the action of a team with money on the line, willing to do anything desperate to make sure they could collect.

It is being suggested this has been going on all series, that it was a series long plan, and Starc's wicket haul following a damaged ball swap in the first test is being looked at.

A question regarding Starc and the First Test was asked by a journalist in Smith's press conference. He rejected it. 

The suggestion was repeated on Channel NINE this morning

SICKENING

So blatant....if they going to cheat like that and not be caught, they needed DAVID COPPERFIELD on the team.

SO stupid...a camera always follows the ball these days

Impressive press conference by Smith. His ability to admit fault, appear contrite, throw his mates under the bus and still claim to be the best option as captain must have the LNP scrambling to get him signed up if this cricket thing doesn't work out after today.

I sincerely regret (that I was busted).Embarrassed

Smith can't remain as captain- Dave Warner from the suburbs must replace him.

Warner is surely part of the leadership group Smith named. Nobody knows exactly who that entails, but surely if CA are fair dinkum none of them should play again this series and certainly none should captain.Smith said no coaches were involved.

Not to excuse Smith and Co but I think ball-tampering should be within the rules of Test cricket.Tongue If I was Grand Poobah of the ICC ball-tampering would be legal and talking to batters illegal, unless they wanted to chat.Hug

It's funny seeing former players from the footy codes saying they don't cheatLOL- they cheat all game long in all the codes- it's a professional obligation.

THIS is a tragedy

and 

I can't believe JAMES SUTHERLAND states he will not not be going to SA to investigate.

What's wrong with these people?

He baulked the PAY ISSUE,now this.

Why is he in charge?

THIS SPELLS doom for followers of the current AUST TEAM and they don't get it.

Currently,it looks like so many are involved...like more than 4,probably 5

Smith..stated BANCROFT just happened to be around when WE hatched up the plan

DARREN LEHMANN needs to come out NOW and tell it like it should be told

OTHERWISE

I deem him to be complicit

Watch the feed provided when D L goes for the walkie-talkie and sends H to "get to" BANCROFT,ASAP

I think SUTHERLAND is trying to get as far away from the FIRE as possible

so what is told and then NOT ACCURATELY and perhaps falsely given SOON

will not come back and bite him in the bum

A TYPICAL TACTIC...I DID NOT KNOW at the time

The James Sutherland response to the PRESS

asked if he had spoken to SMITH....ans   NO

so many questions to be asked

and some GUY yells out,after 9 mins, TQ   TQ very much

James answers another question

and he calls it quits at the 10 min statement/interview mark

for those that want to know the consequences,right now

BANCROFT will get a level 2 charge and made to miss 1 TEST MATCH!!!!!!! Why would you not cheat and hope to get away with it,for such a sentence

BANCROFT is an AQUINAS boy,Confession awaits him.

the rules need to be changed.....with obvious EVIDENCE shown,BANCROFT should have banned from cricket for LIFE.

Then NOBODY WOULD TAMPER WITH A BALL.

( I appreciate the circumstance BANCROFT was thrown in..he was led to slaughter)

Bancroft should not be hung drawn and quartered for his part in this disgrace. On match and living with the disgrace is more than enough.

NO, the real punishment must be levelled at Lehman and Smith, They have thrown Bancroft under the bus.
