In an Australian test match, Cameron Bancroft was caught tampering with the ball. He got sandpaper to scuff up one side of the ball. He did it to create swing which is really hard for batsman. He scuffed the ball so the ball would make a reverse swing which is even harder for batsman to play and it is a game changer. Steve Smith and David Warner will both be banned for 12 months and Cameron Bancroft will be banned for 9 months. Coach Darren Lehman has decided to step down from the role as coach. Steve Smith made an emotional apology.
