Australian team has been caught red-handed, ball-tampering in the third Test against South Africa.Australia's leadership group, including Smith and other senior players hatch a plan to tamper with the ball to gain reverse swing,Cameron Bancroft, to do so, as a way to “get an advantage” against the Proteas.

In his post-play press conference alongside Bancroft the Australian captain said he was embarrassed, he appeared remorseful and said it was the first time this had happened and the last time it would do so. Was he sorry he instructed the team’s junior player to try and blatantly cheat to get Australia back into the game.

The International Cricket Council charged Bancroft, the most junior member in the side at 25, of trying to change the condition of the ball. The governing body could dish out a one-match ban and a 100 percent fine of match fee to Bancroft. Would anyone bet without a Jackpotjoy Promo Code on Australia winning the world cup in 2019?
