In the old days it was common but these days with camera's at all angles and super slomo it is just damn stupid to even attempt it.

He's lost his fee for the match as well. I wonder if you can insure for lost of earnings against being caught cheating?

It is definitely out of character for Steve Smith. A strange brain fade...

Well, it turned into a 322 wicket defeat. Just desserts, really...

Still a better showing than Ingger-land against the Kiwis though. :doh:

At least the balls in that match were un-tampered...

322 wickets? Fucking cheats, smuggling so many extra team members in to bat.

Pathetic suspension. I hope Cricket Australia comes down on them hard. The country is up in arms about this. Not about kids imprisoned in Nauru, though. But that's to be expected.

Yep. Just wondering what in the hell got into his brain. Fed up with cricket because this is going to fuck any career thoughts he had.

There's suspicion now that they were cheating in the last Ashes series (vs England). There's footage of one of the players putting what looks like sugar into his pocket in the dressing room. Sweet liquid (in this case spit and sugar) helps add a really strong shine to one side of the ball, allowing it to swing better.

Do they earn that much for winning? I mean is it worth cheating?
