Dark day for Australian cricket as Steve Smith admits plan to cheat
https://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/da ... 4z63q.html

I kept flicking back to the cricket in between races this afternoon and couldn't believe my eyes at seeing this.

Awful for Australian cricket, Australia and cricket.

Unusual series played with a great deal of animosity.

Aus clearly crossed the line, but, per ICC rules, it’s just a level
2 offence. No real sanction for that.

Level 4, for personal contact is Red card.

ICC need to change laws.

Expect crowd will be pretty harsh later today.

I have a feeling that Sunday cul-de-sac beers in Brissie tonight are going to be a lonely 2 man affair for my English mate and I (Saffa) :shock: ;)

I'm amazed there hasn't been more comment on this!

Steve Smith has gone from hero to Public Enemy number one overnight.

:) It has been huge (even more than I expected) at work but has taken a day or two to warm up. It was very quiet on Monday but an absolute frenzy today. I think the Aussie populace needed time to get over the shock :shock: :) .It is only tape and only ball tampering but it has spoken to and betrayed the perceived character generally exhibited by Australians in sport-Possibly even more so than the underarm deal. A local mate of mine summed it up when he mentioned how he wants to punch Steve Smith in the face after having to explain to his confused and sad 10 year old son that his heroes had cheated and not only that-they had planned it.

Smith and Warner should be given a 2 year international ban.

Full story should be known in a few hours but rumblings on Twitter that it was Warner not Smith and that Smith covered for him. Also hearing Warner pointed the finger at some of the bowlers who weren’t in on it and now they’ve gone ballistic and want him removed from the team. Could all be hearsay but has a plausible ring to it ...

I speculated right away that Smith had taken one for the team but thought it might be wishful thinking.What a mess

Warner has long been an arrogant thug.

He needs a good kicking down a dark alley way.
