David Warner and Steve Smith, two of the most prominent cricketers of the Australian cricket team, were involved in a major controversy during the third Test match against South Africa in Cape Town in March 2018. The controversy involved the use of sandpaper to tamper with the ball, which is against the laws of cricket.
During the match, Cameron Bancroft, a young Australian batsman, was caught on camera trying to rough up the ball with sandpaper during play. The video footage was shown on the big screen and immediately sparked controversy. After a brief investigation, it was revealed that Bancroft was carrying out the act on the instructions of senior players, including David Warner and Steve Smith.
As a result of the scandal, Smith and Warner were both banned from international and domestic cricket for a period of one year, while Bancroft was banned for nine months. The incident caused widespread outrage among cricket fans and the media, and led to a major upheaval in Australian cricket. It also damaged the reputations of Smith and Warner, who were considered to be two of the best cricketers in the world at the time.
Since then, both players have made their comeback to international cricket and have played for the Australian team in various formats. However, the controversy remains a dark chapter in their careers, and has led to increased scrutiny and attention on issues related to sportsmanship and fair play in cricket.
