    India currently demolishing England in Tests. Good times!!
    Excellent Over from Ashwin, made the ball dance all around poor Bairstow! Can't wait for the Ind v Aus test series next. Can't see the Aussies being any better...

    Ind v Aus. It's been a cracker of a series so far. Scores level at 1:1. Final game starts tonight, can't let the convicts keep the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Hyped!!

    A series filled with some great cricket is going to be unfortunately remembered only for the ball-tampering scandal

    Australia ball-tampering: Steve Smith, David Warner & Cameron Bancroft sent home from SA

    Bancroft and Smith were exposed during the third day of the third Test when images showed the opening batsman take what he said was yellow tape out of his trouser pocket before rubbing the ball.

    After the day's play, Smith admitted the team's "leadership group" had a plan, carried out by Bancroft, to tamper with the ball to "get an advantage".

    After beginning an investigation on Sunday, Cricket Australia told reporters on Tuesday that their sanctions will be in addition to those imposed on Smith and Bancroft by the sport's world governing body.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) banned Smith for one match and fined him his entire match fee, while Bancroft was fined 75% of his match fee and given three demerit points.
    Smith basically admitted they made a plan to cheat to win. He can't be let off lightly after that. Total shitstorm after the ugly incidents in the previous match. Not good publicity for Test cricket especially considering the already dwindling ticket sales.

    Australia's two best batsmen - Smith and Warner (who also seems to be involved) have forever tarnished their reputations. Doesn't matter how many runs they score after this.

    Smith has already received a greater penalty than any player in the history of Test cricket for ball tampering and he will be further punished. Same for Bancroft & Warner. Smith & Warner were also stripped of their Captaincy & Vice Captaincy, As far as I am aware no other player has ever missed a Test for ball tampering or been seriously sanctiend by their own cricket board.

    The opposing captain, Faf Du Plessis, has been found guilty of ball tampering twice and only been fined. Fines were also handed out to Mike Atherton, Vernon Philander, Rahul Dravid & others. The only games ever missed as a result of ball tampering were limited overs games. When Pakistan was caught ball tampering they stormed off the ground, screamed 'racism' and refused to finish the game. When Sachin Tendulkar was caught ball tampering India threw a giant tantrum, withdrew from the tour & stood over the ICC until it changed its decision to 'cleaning the ball without permission' (pull the other one, it plays jingle bells). Funnily enough none of the above mentioned & more (Waqar, Shahid Afridi, Martin Crowe, Michael Vaughan, Marcus Trescothick etc) had their reputations 'tarnished forever'.

    But this time its Australia, so the punishment has to be greater and the reaction more over the top. Of course, even greater punishment won't satisfy people. Nothing will. The reaction isn't really about the offence, so no response that relates to the offence could ever be enough.

    Smith & Warner out of all top level cricket in Australia for 12 months & Bancroft for 9 months. That includes all first class & Test cricket and covers next summer's Test series against India. The highest they can play is grade cricket.

    I think it is fair to assume that if Indian players were caught doing something similar with a series against Australia in the next 12 months there isn't the slightest chance they would get bans covering that series....if they got bans of any sort.

    Its quite clear what needs to be done here, India, England, South Africa & New Zealand need to get together and form a Quad to contain the excesses of the hegemonic and ruthless Aussies
