The ball-tampering incident during a test match between Australia and South Africa has already created a lot of problems for Cricket Australia. But, a recent twist has made the situation more controversial. According to the Sydney Morning Herald report, Steve Smith was unaware of key elements of the ball-tampering plan but realised only after seeing it on the big screen.
Moreover, there are rumours that Smith personally didn’t like the plan and he even expressed his dislike but at the same time, did not attempt to stop it.
Cricket Australia (CA) had charged Smith with the following levies:
- Knowledge of a potential plan.
- Steps to seek to prevent the development and implementation of that plan.
David Warner Planned The Entire Plot
On the other hand, the report further suggests that David Warner had planned the entire plot. Moreover, during a press conference, Warner straightly avoided questions such as…..
- Whether the ball-tampering plot was his idea.
- Who else was aware of it?
