    no why would I say that? is using bigger gloves against the law?

    plus his board/ country didn't throw him under the bus even if it was remotely illegal.

    when did that happen anyway?

    With Lehman , I see it 1 of 2 ways.

    1. He knew about it and is full of crap
    2. Didn’t know and is the most incompetent coach of all time.

    Either way he loses

    What? Nothing? It has now been confirmed that Lehmann used the walkie talkie to find out what was going on. Until we hear different, Lehmann has done nothing wrong.

    Yes it is against the law as it gives you an increased chance of catching the ball, hence why it is illegal.

    Why would the BCCI throw him under the bus? They will use any way to win & have done in the past, like Tendulkar for ball tampering too.

    Warner and Smith are both going to lose roughly 15 million each. Such a massive loss for something that isnt worth that much

    2. Is the coach in the room with all the players all the time? If you had hatched this scheme, wouldn't you wait until he was distracted or in the john or out of the room? Quite feasible.

    why are you going all mental rating my comments 'interesting' even though they are not even related to this topic?

    are you Darren lehmann and scared of losing your job?

    shame on you for throwing a young kid's career in the gutter.

    Smith
    Bancroft
    Warner

    Why do those initials keep haunting Candice Warner?

    They can play club cricket.

    Smith can't be Aussie captain for 2 years.

    Warner can never be in any leadership role.

    The punishments given to Bancroft and Smith are incredibly disproportionate to their offences.

    Throughout cricket history ball tampering has usually let to the ICC fining players, however their own cricket organisations rarely get involved to the extent Australian cricket has.

    This whole affair has mostly been about some very weak, shallow people (mostly media journos) being able to unload all their grievances about the Australian cricket team that have absolutely nothing to do with ball tampering.

    The over reaction is absurd.

    Bancroft should have been fined, and given a few matches to learn a lesson.

    Smith should have lost the captaincy (he clearly showed poor judgement which is necessary of a captain), been fined and given a few matches, at most a month or two off.

    Even Warner's punishment is excessive. From everything I've heard, this guy is an A grade toss bag. If you also believe the reports - the entire scheme was of his making. However, 12 months off for attempting to manipulate a ball is absurd.
