Australian cricket players are already infamous for ball tampering scandal which happened in 2018. During the third test match against South Africa in Cape Town, Cameron Bancroft was caught on camera tampering the ball. He was roughing up one side of the ball with the sandpaper trying to make it swing in flight. Captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were also found to be guilty.
Something almost same was caught on camera during India and Australia ongoing match. Australian player Adam Zampa was spotted rubbing something on the ball. His fishy body language caught everyone’s attention and went viral online rapidly.
Zampa was spotted taking something out of his pocket and rubbing it on the ball while taking the run-up for the delivery.
