Australian coach 'to resign within 24 hours'

Former England captain turned TV commentator Mike Atherton was once accused of ball-tampering

Eventually, Smith conceded ball-tampering was a pre-planned tactic by the leadership group, who had met during lunch on Day 3 to discuss it.

"I think he's probably spent a lot of years wondering what might have been, but right now I think he's just enjoying the moment".

If reports in the English media are to be believed Steve Smith could be stripped of the Australian captaincy permanently.

Teeth, zipper, mint and add sandpaper to it now, the desperation to extract reverse swing in unfavourable conditions has driven worldwide teams to find freakish ways to tamper the ball.

The International Cricket Council fined Steven Smith and suspended from the fourth Test against South over breaching the code of conduct. This is an environment that leaves players viewing ball-tampering on this scale as a viable match-winning strategy.

"We know Australians want answers and we will keep you updated on our findings and next steps, as a matter of urgency."Smith and all members of the team will remain in South Africa to assist in the probe to determine exactly what happened, and who knew". ICC only banned Smith for a match and fined him 100 per cent of his match fees and Bancroft got only 75 per cent of his match fees deducted. Warner's possible role in the plot was not addressed by the ICC but Cricket Australia will deal with all three of them, and maybe Lehmann and others.

"It's been a awful 24 hours - I want to apologise to our fans and those back home", said Tim Paine, who was handed the stand-in skipper role on Sunday."We're struggling but the reality and the enormity of what's happened has probably started to sink in".

Smith added that the ICC needed to review their match referees and the processes by which they made decisions. This was two years ago and obviously he has not learnt anything from his past errors.

The Australian Cricket team, that is no new to controversies, has landed themselves in yet another scandal. Here, the significance of the game and the team's desire to win are used to justify cheating.

Gibson said he expected cricket's governing body to take decisive action following the latest incident of a spiteful series that has witnessed plenty of controversial behaviour between players from both teams. In addition to his punishment, Smith was also banned for one game by the global governing body of cricket.

He demanded Cricket Australia act decisively in investigating the incident.

"I will support all positive action to ensure an outcome for the betterment of the game, regaining the trust and faith of every fan of cricket".

"This is deeply disappointing and certainly not what anyone expects from our national cricket team", said Qantas, Australia's biggest airline whose name appears on the team's uniforms.

Cricket Australia has launched an investigation into the case and in all likelihood will remove Smith and Darren Lehmann as caption and coach, respectively.

It was announced on Tuesday that batsman Matt Renshaw has been called into the squad for the fourth Test against the Proteas as Australia look to salvage a 2-2 series draw.
