The Australian cricket team has shocked many people after they admitted to cheating during a match in Cape Town, South Africa.

Last week, captain Steve Smith said his team’s “leadership group” had hatched a plan to cheat by deliberately messing with the ball “to get an advantage” during a Test match.

The team took sandpaper onto the pitch to try and change the condition of the ball.

Smith, and vice captain David Warner, have been banned for one year by Cricket Australia and have also been banned from playing in the IPL later this season.

Cameron Bancroft, the player that actually messed with the ball was banned for 9 months.

  1. Terrible of Steve and David to actually agree to this. Fair play is the only kind of play that should go down on such a huge scale.

  2. I always knew there was something a bit fishy about that match……. Hmmm :O
