A Sydney-based independent review seems to have the responsibility of Cricket Australia (CA) in ball tampering in the Cape Town Test. And so the Australian Cricketers Association (ACB) requested Smith-Warner to take the punishment off. But CA will not take this punishment off. Ian Chappell was frustrated by the decision of the board.
Steve Smith-David Warner’s case in the Cape Town Test match last March. Cricket Australia (CA) was banned by three players for ball tampering. Smith and Warner are banned for one year and nine months in the bancroft. The ICC, which punishes little for ball tampering, CA has set an example by stern punishment, and thought that analysts thought it was an example. Wrong One of the Sydney-based ethics centers said through an independent review that the Board has the responsibility. CA must have been involved in this mentality – that is to win. And that’s the ball tampering scandal in Cape Town.
Since CA has responsibility for ball tampering:
why only players will be punished? The Australian Cricketers Association, therefore, requested Smith-Warner-Bancroft to lift their punishment and play them. But CA did not listen to this demand. CA chairman David Piever said the players’ sentence will remain in force despite the board taking its responsibility on the shoulders of South Africa. Ian Chappell can not accept the matter anyway. According to him, this decision will increase the board’s dispute with the players. Chapel thinks that the decision to not take the Board’s punishment from Smith is a ‘joke’.
Former Australia captain:
In an interview, said in the interview that during the incident at Cape Town, only three – Smith, Warner and Bancroft – are responsible for this incident, but it is nothing but a joke. But the matter is officially a joke. Players have the right to get angry at the board. Because, they get the punishment only. Although this is the history of the game. Administrators of the game will do wrong, players will be punished.
