The ball tampering scandal has rocked the reputation of the Australian cricket team. It came out after Smith admitted to hatching a plan along with a few other "senior players" to alter the condition of the ball to gain an unfair advantage during the third Test against South Africa. Captain Smith and his deputy David Warner are both facing life bans if the maximum penalty is applied under Cricket Australia's code of behaviour, and have already stepped down as captain and vice-captain of the team.
