Wasim Jaffer ‘surprised’ at Australia’s ball-tampering tactics 

Wasim Jaffer ‘surprised’ at Australia’s ball-tampering tactics

The Australian cricket team’s reputation is at stake after the ball-tampering incident hit the stands at Cape Town. There doesn’t seem to be any stopping when it comes to the reactions from fans and cricketers around the world. The latest to join the chores is Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer.

The veteran batsman believes that strict punishment should be dished out and such acts are not acceptable. Captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner stepped down from their respective positions ahead of the finals day’s play in the third Test match against South Africa. Cameron Bancroft was caught on camera pulling a yellow object from his pocket before dubbing it to the rough side of the ball. He then slipped the foreign object under his pants and it was all caught by the camera.

The Proteas went on to win the match by a massive 322 runs, taking a 2-1 lead in the 4-match series. The fourth and the final Test will be starting on 30th of this month at Johanessburg.

“I think whatever happened is not acceptable without a doubt and we don’t know what punishment they’ll get. They planned to go against the rules of the game and then felt embarrassed after being caught. The appropriate people will look into the matter and they will get the punishment for the same,” he told CricTracker.

Jaffer went on to add that he was surprised just like the rest of the cricket fans as Australia have a strong bowling attack. The bowling pack was lethal during the Ashes, helping Smith and his men regain the urn.

“They have such a strong bowling line-up and recently they have beaten England so easily in the Ashes. I don’t understand the reason behind their actions. They are one of the strongest bowling lineups going around and I’m surprised that they have gone in with this tactic,” Jaffer concluded.
