Bangla Hunt Desk: Three years ago, a scandalous incident took place in cricket during the Test match between Australia and South Africa. In that match, two Aussie stars David Warner and Steve Smith got involved in ball tampering. Another Aussie cricketer is Cameron Bancroft. Cricket Australia expelled all three from cricket for their involvement in ball tampering.
Cricket Australia banned Cameron Backroft for nine months and Warner and Smith for one year. Warner was banned from captaining Australia for life and Smith was banned from captaining Australia for two years.
Long after that incident, Cameron Bancroft opened his mouth again about the ball tampering incident. He was asked in an interview if any other Aussie cricketer knew about the incident. “Everybody on the team knew about the incident, except for the three of us,” Bancroft said. Because it was the bowlers who benefited. Cricket Australia has since said it will re-investigate the incident and punish each of the culprits.
The Australian bowling attack in that match included Mitchell Starc, Joss Hazelhood, Mitchell Marsh, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon. In other words, if the investigation is started again, then these bowlers are also going to be trapped. In that case, if they are also deported, the Australian cricket team will break up.
