Former Australia coach Darren Lehmann feels that the player involved in ball tampering and could help him a bit more Cricket Australia Lehman also said he would take up the punishment on smiths.
Cricket Australia (CA) banned Steve Smith-David Warner-Cameron Bancroft for ball tampering in Cape Town Test. It was then thought that CA had set a great example of the severe punishment of this crime. But after the publication of an independent review of the Ethics Center in Sydney, everyone thought that the idea would be overturned. The Australian Cricket Board (CA) has the responsibility of ball tampering.
CA-E has been involved in the mentality of players who must win :
And that’s why the ball tampering scandal in Cape Town. It is said in the independent review of Longstream Review. After that, Australian Cricketers Association (ACB) requested Smith, Warner, Bancroft, to withdraw the punishment. Smith and Warner were banned for 12 months and 9 months for the ball tampering. In addition to the ACB, former Australian captain Ian Chappell also said that since the board has responsibility for ball tampering, it is wrong to punish players only. But CA did not listen to Smith’s demand to withdraw the punishment. This complicated and heated situation will definitely provoke LeMan’s anger.
Like Chappell :
Lehmann also thinks that the Smiths should be punished. However, the former Australian coach has reminded the board that he has also said, ‘They should come back. Although the board will decide. But the common people of Australia – at least those who have talked – want to see them again in cricket. Since the review report has come, the punishment should be re-evaluated.
