Booing by English crowd on Warners 50 is poor. They should be ashamed.

"I wholeheartedly support the booing of Smith and Warner. To commit such a heinous crime, receive no punishment for it and show zero remorse?
"Why it's no wonder that English crowds, usually so level-headed and fair when it comes to interacting with Australian players, had been driven to uncharacteristic booing."

I don't care about the booing. Its part and parcel of sport. It certainly doesn't seem to be affecting them (Smith & Warner) performance wise so far anyway.

onty Panesar has revealed that England's bowlers used mints to alter the condition of the ball and assist with reverse swing.

"We all tried to change the condition of the ball, because reverse swing has such a huge impact," Panesar wrote in his autobiography, The Full Monty, which has been serialised in the Daily Mail.

"When I came into the England side, my job was to prepare the ball for the seamers.

"They'd say, 'Listen mate, if you want to bowl with us it's on one condition. Make sure you don't get your sweaty hands on our shiny side.

"Opening bowler Jimmy Anderson would say: 'I just want you to keep that ball as dry as possible.'"

The spinner, who featured in the Ashes-winning series in 2009 and 2010-11, said he also used the zip on his trousers to rough up the ball and admits his actions were probably against the spirit of the game.

"Whether we broke the laws depends on how you interpret them," he said.

"We found that mints and sun cream had an effect on the saliva, and that helped the ball to reverse.

"I might also have 'accidentally' caught the ball on the zip of my trouser pocket to rough it up a little.

"That was probably a hairline fracture of the spirit of the game, even if the laws said you were allowed to 'use your uniform'."

The revelations are sure to reignite the ball-tampering debate in light of the suspensions of Steve Smith, Dave Warner and Cameron Bancroft for using sandpaper to doctor the condition of the ball in South Africa in 2018.

It was claimed that ball tampering in international cricket was more widespread than believed in the wake of that affair.

According to law 42.3 of the MCC’s Laws of Cricket, a fielder can polish a ball “provided that no artificial substance is used”.

The ICC found South Africa captain Faf du Plessis guilty of ball tampering after using mints to alter the condition of the ball against Australia in 2016. He was also been fined for rubbing the ball on the zipper of his pants against Pakistan in 2013.

In the 2017 Ashes, James Anderson was accused of ball tampering after being seen digging his left thumbnail into the ball during Australia’s second innings in the Boxing Day Test. Anderson described the claims as "ridiculous".

For your information, megabonehead, it's "moral high ground ". We aren't taking it at all. No matter which way you cut & dice it, the aussies were caught, convicted and penalized for blatant cheating. All around the cricket world they will be known for it, now & for a long time to come. Great to see fans dressed up as sandpaper, the worst is yet to come. :oops:

When has an England player been convicted and penalized for ball tampering? What makes the australian conviction & penalty for ball tampering worse, is that it was a blatant conspiracy involving the captain,vice captain & a sheep that got talked into it. That is why the penalty was severe, as it rightly should have been. Every country that plays cricket, has done what Panasar claims. It's old news. Poor try at deflection, aussies.

I reckon Mike Atherton may have been charged and fined back in the 1990's

Atherton wasn't fined or reprimanded by the I.C.C. However, the E.C.B. fined him. A long, long way from what the aussies did.
