Australian Cricket and Cheating
We go through the whole sorry tale, and discuss the emotional roller coaster that is the ball tampering scandal involving Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft and apparent mastermind David Warner. We discuss the punishments they have received, why they are so harsh, and whether they are fair.
