During the ongoing Test series in the Rainbow Nation, Australia team had stooped to their low. Cameron Bancroft was caught by the SuperSport TV camera while rubbing the cherry with the tape.

The English players were also baffled over the latest scandal. It has been referred as the ‘darkest’ day in Australian cricket following the admission of folly by skipper Steven Smith in particular.

English media in particular Sportsmail made a massive claim by terming Australia Vice-captain served as the protagonist in the ball tampering.

Earlier, one of the videos over social media revealed Bancroft fill-up his pocket with sugar during a break visibly in a change room.

It’s further reported the devious acts were held during the post-drinks break in Australia during the Ashes campaign.

The British media house claimed explosive opener Warner has admitted to tampering with the ball after England’s 4-0 debacle in Australia.

Interestingly, the report further suggested Warner used the strapping on his index finger including the thumb.

Moreover, Mail, a news outlet maintained Warner had revealed his methods to a section of England cricketers.
