      Over 11 - England 18-5 (Ali 0, Bairstow 0).

      At this rate they might not get to 50

      Steve Smith - immensely talented player but this coupled with that DRS 'brain fade' stuff against India will tarnish him forever. Not sure how he can continue as captain really?

      Steve Smith really has no alternative now. Hes got to stand down which is quite funny cos its the decision Australia really dont want to make.

      South Africa have really got into these fellas heads in a way our lot didn't manage.

      The meaning of the series less on paper than an ashes test but i think South Africa got them desperate.

      They have got off likely in my view. This is blatant cheating in every sense of the word, their only problem is, that they have been caught.

      Thats ICC the big punishments will be dished out by their own board.

      Apparently theres a video of Bancroft filling his pockets with sugar against England too.

      At times I think 'is this a bit of an overreaction?' Ball tampering is nothing new in this sport is it? But then the other side of me speaks louder given that it was pre-empted as opposed to impulsive and the dirty deed was shoved onto a relative rookie by the experienced pros. That really stinks of a cowardly act, not too dissimilar to the attitude displayed by Renault F1 chiefs telling Piquet Jnr to crash deliberately to disrupt the Singapore GP in favour of Fernando Alonso back in 2008.

      Is it worse than the underarm bowl by Chappell in 1981? I only say that because I found myself in a youtube wormhole a couple of months back looking at old cricket Australia videos (was during the Ashes) and Richie Benaud's famous but controlled expression of disgust in light of that incident. What would he say about the current scandal?

      Personally don't think it is as bad as spot fixing and certainly not match fixing. How Mohammed amir is allowed to play after serving prison timr is beyond me. Problem is this Australia team are deeply unpopular even amongst some of their own fans etc, i think that level of unpopularity is just hitting home

      The over reaction is those saying Smith should be banned for x amount of years or a life ban.

      The Aussie public/media/Quantas will see to it that his captaincy gets moved along and the reputation of the team can be rebuilt. A reasonable ban and he will continue his career without the captaincy.

      Lehman will go and that will be of no loss to the Aussies or the game at all. His silence on this has been pretty pitiful to be honest. He knew.

      It will be interesting if Warner profits or loses from this because he's next in line but also right in the thick of the scandal. I dont think the Aussies can rebuild their image with him as captain.

      Beyond those two though its difficult to see the next leader amongst them.

      That video of Bancroft putting sugar in his pocket during the ashes looks pretty damning too. They've been doing this for a good while and like has already been said its the planning thats gone into this that makes it so bad.

      Their unpopularity doesn't help. There's a lot of snidy cu*ts amongst them who give it out then whinge when they get it back.

      Very damning then. Seeing that photo of Bancroft and Smith sporting glum and embarrassed faces is one of the most pathetic, sad images I've seen in sport for a long time. A far cry from their jolly chastising, baiting of the England team from a couple of months back.

      Meanwhile England are in a real mess. Dodgy top 5. 4 right arm 83mph seamers a part time spinner landing them half way down.

      They could really do with a left arm seamer and Moeen will either have to cut it as a batsman or he will end up out the side for Leach who was the best spinner last year in the county championship.

      Yeah, the odi team has improved so much but the test team has regressed badly, scary to think about what happens when Anderson and to a lesser extent broad retire. Batting resources look thin and we have some promising bowlers but real out and out quicks, if stokes back is a long term problem and gets banged up it doesn't look great

      The test match side of cricket needs a strong Australian team but they have to change. They get into all kinds of scraps off the field. Warner is nearly always at the forefront. Now they've been caught red handed ball tampering. I doubt anybody in the England set up is overly surprised.

      The Aussies always seem to get more reverse swing, easy to say...now we know why. The fallout will linger. Smith will be booted out by his own people. Warner won't get off scott free either. The rest of the mob will get some kind of ban but Leeman is the one I'd be going after.

      I wouldn't want the aggression taken out of the game but outright cheating has no place in any sport.

      I can tolerate Warner..in the way I could put up with Costa. Both narky, both great players. But if Warner is fully implicated in the cheating then he will suffer far more than a diving striker would in football.

      Costed added an edge to the game. Diving in football is largly instinctive, but can be premeditated as well. Not acceptable but it does go on and dosen't stop the game in it's tracks. So care has to be taken in Cricket that the Aussie cricket board don't go over the top.

      2 year ban from being skipper for Smith and immediate 5 match ban. 50,000 AUD fine. Warner the same. Slightly less for others implicated. That's as far as I would take it...something like that.
