Ball Tampering: Calls for captain Steve Smith to resign after Ball Tampering confession

Ball Tampering: Australian captain Steve Smith says The leadership group knew about it’

Ball Tampering: Calls for Smith to resign after Ball Tampering confession – Australia cricket team admit cheating against South Africa after being caught ball-tampering – Australia captain Steve Smith has admitted that his side deliberately tampered with the ball during the third Test against South Africa after batsman Cameron Bancroft was seen taking out an object from his pocket while shining the ball. The incident, which has tarnished Australia’s reputation on the international stage, took place during South Africa’s second innings and the International Cricket Council [ICC] has already charged Bancroft, with Smith admitting that it was a decision taken by the “leadership group” within the team. “The leadership group knew about it, we spoke about it at lunch,” Smith told a news conference. “I am not proud of what has happened. It’s not in the spirit of the game, my integrity and the integrity of the team has been damaged and rightfully so. It’s not on, it’s certainly not and it won’t happen again under my leadership. “We thought it was a possible way to get an advantage, obviously it didn’t work. It was a poor choice and I deeply regret our actions. Source: Independent

Kusal Mendis in Action

Looking at Sri Lanka’s new-found confidence with the same group of players now showing their real potential is proof enough that there is no lack of talent in the Island nation. Just the inability of those guiding their fortunes being able to work on their mindset and subtle tinkering of their talent.

 The bowling which was of real concern appears to have been sorted out with the available talent led by veterans Suranga Lakmal and Rangana Herath at the helm ably supported by emerging stars Dhananjaya De Silva and Dilruwan Perera helping re-shape a reasonable attack.

 But what has been most heartening is the increasing consistency of their batsmen who hammered the Bangladesh attack for 713 for 9 in reply to the hosts 513. Kusal Mendis found timely form and Dhanjaya De Silva supported him with big centuries. From a dead track in Mipur the Bangladeshi curators then produced a vicious turner in Dhaka which saw their spinners restrict Sri Lanka to two 200 plus totals but the more seasoned Lankan Spinners ran riot to skittle them out for just over 100 twice to completely annihilate them.

 If there is a worrying factor at the moment it is the recurring injury to former skipper Angelo Matthews who is still a gun in all formats but for his injury issues. The continuing inconsistency of current skipper Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera who could help make them once again the world beaters they once were is also concerning. Hathurusinghe’s clever mentoring could soon sort out their issues.

 A tri-nation T20 series with India and Bangladesh in March to mark Sri Lanka’s 70 years of Independence will give the Sri Lankans a measurement of their progress before the important tour to the West Indies after a decade for a three-match Test series in May and a home series against South Africa in July-August which will put their current position in true perspective.

 The Asia Cup in India in September and a home series against England in October/November caps off a busy year before the Lankans tour New Zealand for a Test and one-day series ahead of the World Cup in 2019.

Former Sri Lanka seamer Graeme Labrooy is expected to replace Sanath Jayasuriya as Chairman of Cricket selectors, mirrorcricket learns.  Sri Lanka Cricket is likely to make the appointment later this week, in time to finalize the Sri Lanka squad for forthcoming series against Pakistan. Sri Lanka will play two Tests, five ODIs, and three T20 internationals during their tour to UAE.

‘We will make the appointment soon, probably by Saturday,” said a highly placed Sri Lanka Cricket source.

His appointment comes after Jayasuriya-led committee resigned at the end of the disastrous home series against India where Sri Lanka lost all-nine matches in the series (3 Tests, 5 ODIs and a T20I).  Labrooy who is currently employed as an ICC match referee is expected to relieve his duties with the global body to take up the new appointment.

He represented Sri Lanka in 9 Tests and 44 ODIs during 1986-1992. Though the members of the new committee headed by Labrooy are yet to be finalized, SLC may likely to invite Eric Upashantha and Ranjith Madurusighe to be part of the new committee. Both Upashantha and Madurusinghe were part of the selection panel headed by Jayasuriya. Mirrorcricket learns that the SLC has invited former Sri Lanka opener Malinda Warnapura also to join the new committee along with veteran coach and administrator Jayantha Seneviratne.

Sri Lanka team is expected to resume their training on September 19 and the team is expected to leave the shores on September 24, 2017.
