KXIP vs KKR Live Score

That's a mistake on our behalf again. Oblivious of the danger lurking around him and the team, Bancroft continued to rub yellow tape over the ball in the South African second innings.

"It is a very hard time for members of Australian cricket; however, I believe there is a golden opportunity to reset the dial around player and staff behaviours, actions and decision-making", he told reporters.

"We all woke up this morning shocked and bitterly disappointed by the news from South Africa. We will ensure we have all information available to make the right decisions for Australian Cricket".

In the wake of the controversy which has left cricket experts red-faced, an Australian radio station, Triple J, chose to mock their own players. Also, the Turnbull said: "Our cricketers are role models and cricket is synonymous with fair play".

"Smith insisted the head coach knew nothing of the scheme during the lunch break", he said.

The team's head of integrity Iain Roy and performance manager Pat Howard are traveling to South Africa Sunday to investigate what happened.

He went on to explain how the onus of a team's behaviour lies mainly with the captain and said as quoted by The Guardian, "As captain, you're responsible for how everyone else behaves".

Another leading sponsor, beer company Lion, said that "like the rest of Australia, we're deeply disappointed".




"CA is conducting an investigation so we are holding off on acting until we know the results of the investigation".

As the scandal grew in Australia the hashtag #sandpapergate began trending on Twitter and former Cricket players tweeted their disappointment over the team's behavior. That is when the "leadership group" of the Australian team hatched the plan. The name of this cameraman is Oscar, Who handled the camera during the match. "It's pre-meditated cheating, it's blatant cheating".

On the fourth day of the first Test, AB de Villiers is run-out at the non-striker's end by David Warner and Nathan Lyon, prompting animated celebrations. Do a cricketing nation as proud as Australia really want a cheat in charge?

Arguably, it's the injury to the "spirit of the game", a nebulous concept unique to cricket and enshrined in the laws of the game, that is causing much of the outrage around Smith's actions.

He said not only was it wrong for Smith to "put the idea out there" but that no one around him had spoken up.

According to Fox Sports Australia, Warner has not been handling the backlash well.

"All this nonsense about not stepping over the line, the way they behaved as badly as South Africa in that rancorous test match in Durban where they kept cursing the opposition and carrying on in an aggressive way reflected the lack of judgment". Cameron Bancroft, who was at the centre of the controversy after being picked up by TV camera putting a yellow object down the front of his trousers before the two on-field umpires went to him and asked what was in his pockets, was subsequently charged by the ICC.
