Australia should forfeit the test. Smith and Bancroft should be banned for 12 months.
And to think the Aussies are complaining about some stick from spectators.

You mean that a woman would be clever enough not to get caught?

On field behaviour in international cricket has become a race to the bottom and in my view that race was kicked off by the Australians many years ago. They bang on about 'the line' as if they and only they know where that line is (and it always appears to be slightly to the right of whatever antics they get up to). Besides being crude bullies they can also now quite fairly be described as crude bullying cheats.

So Atherton believes Smith won't survive this. He seems to have forgotten how he survived the dirt in the pocket episode when he was captain!!!!!!!!!!

Sand paper used, no wonder the bans are a year for Smith, and Warner, 9 months for Bancroft. The ashes victory must also now be tainted.

Only a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems like the penalty issued by commercial interests will be much more severe than anything CA can dish out. Cancelled sponsorships will cost them millions and serve them right. Although Black and Decker might see an opportunity to promote their electric sanders and Tate & Lyle...........................

.... or the manufacturer of that sticky tape. I believe they call it something other than Sellotape in Australia.

I was on an Aussie cricket forum this lunchtime and some guy said 'It was tape. Everyone knows it was tape. Except those who really want to believe it was sandpaper.'

Literally two minutes later the Cricket Australia statement came out and the headlines everywhere said 'It WAS sandpaper'. That's a Kodak moment right there.

....and Cameron Bancroft won't be coming to Somerset:

I believe that, on the whole, the penalties that have been imposed are correct.  I also believe that people who have made a bad mistake (on the cricket field and elsewhere) at some point deserve a chance to redeem themselves.  So I hope that this will happen after the penalties have been served and that all those concerned will come back stronger and wiser.

To a point I agree, Terry. However, I hope that don't just walk back in to top flight cricket. Teyt need to show their form all over again at club level and also need to earn the respect of the paying public and fellow players before resuming their high earning careers.
I am sure had they not been caught they would have continued cheating and for that reason I do not think we should be so quick to forgive and forget.
