Ball-tampering: Smith, Warner banned for a year, Bancroft for nine months

CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRICA- MARCH 24 Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft  of Australia during day 3 of the 3rd Sunfoil Test match between South Africa and Australia at PPC Newlands

"There are those countries that don't like Australia, don't like individuals in the team, and there has been a build-up of hate which has exploded and created this tornado of hysteria", he wrote.

The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday, April 28, banned the disgraced duo of Steve Smith and David Warner from Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 over their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal that has brought shame to Australian cricket. Even Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was moved to comment on the scandal.

According to a CA statement, Smith and Bancroft were banned from leadership positions for 12 months after completing their one-year ban from global and domestic cricket.

Warne, who was forced to undertake a 12-month road to redemption in 2003 after testing positive for a banned substance, feels CA was too harsh.

'For that reason, I don't think the punishment is fitting the crime'.

"My punishment would have been to miss the fourth Test match, a huge fine, and be sacked as captain and vice-captain. There is no way you can condone it", he said on his official Facebook page.

Warner, the pugnacious 31-year-old opening batsman, was also expected to be banned for 12 months, meaning his worldwide career may be over. BCCI's move was on cards as it had made a decision to follow CA's punishment.

CA Chief Executive James Sutherland met the players at their hotel in Johannesburg's Sandton district to tell them their fate before they flew back to Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

"We've landed at something that we believe is appropriate, commensurate".

Lehmann was speaking to Australian media only, after local South African journalists and global news agencies were barred from the news conference.

Former Australia captain Steve Smith and opener David Warner have been banned from cricket for a year following the ball-tampering scandal.

Australia also lost the test by a crushing 322 runs.

"If we take a leaf out of someone like New Zealand. we push the boundaries on the ground, so we need to make sure we are respecting the game and its traditions".

The 65-year-old shocked the cricketing world in 1981 when he bowled underarm with the final ball of a one-day clash. "It's been building over a long period of time and the culture between the team really needs to be addressed really seriously".

Coach Darren Lehmann, a target for scrutiny for the Australian media, played no role in the cheating, Sutherland said, and would continue as coach.

The trio will be allowed to compete in club cricket, but can not take part in state or worldwide games for the duration of their bans.

According to cricket.com.au, the investigation found Warner conceived the idea to rough up the ball with sandpaper, enlisted Bancroft to carry out the task and demonstrated how to do it.

"It's been verified by others that on the walkie-talkie. he radioed down and said 'what the f*** is going on!". We need to change how we play.

"I want to apologize to all Australians that these events have taken place, particularly to all the kids who love cricket and idolize the players".
