It's not the Aussies that impose suspensions. That guy needs to get a grip of his white-line fever.

Well, Australian cricket has hit a new low. Cheating cunts. Those involved should be suspended for a year at least. I can't believe Steve Smith. The greatest batsmen the game has seen in a long time, and he goes and authorises this. You fucking tool. And then he thinks he can stay on as captain. Unbelievable. He should be sacked as captain never to hold the role again.

Agreed 100%

Actually, the whole series has been a blot on the game of cricket. Such juvenile petulance and poor behaviour from both sides...

Ball tampering is not cricket. Anyone not playing cricket should not be in a cricket team. They should be sacked.

I wouldn't oppose lifetime bans. It's only that Steve Smith is involved, and he's the greatest batter since Bradman. Makes me so fucking disappointed. Was looking forward to see what he would make of his career.

Lifetime ban is probably a little much. He should lose the captaincy, and a fine and/or a match suspension, perhaps...

Is there betting money involved fixing the game? You are not going to be so stupid otherwise.

I'm not a cricket (or sports generally) fan, but they seemed to be the superior team by some margin. They risked everything for an edge they didn't even need, Idiots.

Steve Smith banned for one Test for role in ball-tampering scandal
Smith admitted to cheating during the third Test with South Africa after Cameron Bancroft was spotted on TV cameras attempting to change the condition of the ball illegally
That is very light. Just one test. Plenty have been banned for less. I thought this comment was intriguing:
Oh! How the mighty have fallen. There were questions as to how the Aussies could have got the "Kookaburra" ball to "swing" so phenomenally during the last Ashes series. As it's well known that the Kookaburra ball is difficult to "swing" in most conditions. If Jimmy couldn't swing it. How could the Aussies? Just a thought.

Cheating is a time honored tradition in baseball.
