David Warner 'takes responsibility' for his part in ball-tampering scandal

A bombshell media release yesterday from CA revealed it was sandpaper, not sticky tape, that Bancroft used to work on the ball under Warner's instruction during the third Test against South Africa.

After hearing his penalty and embracing teammates, Smith departed Johannesburg on a flight.

Steve Smith and Warner were banned for 12 months by Cricket Australia, while Cameron Bancroft received a nine-month suspension for his actions.

"Mistakes have been made which have damaged cricket", he said in a short statement he tweeted this afternoon. But the hard-hitting opening batsman, 31, will also be an enormous loss for Australia - he is ranked fifth in the world with a Test average approaching 50.

Smith and Warner were banned from playing for Australia, or any high-level cricket in Australia, for a year.

Magellan Financial Group has upped stumps as the naming rights sponsor of the Australian men's domestic Test series following this week's explosive ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.

Warner was the only one of the trio to be charged with breaching the CA code of conduct on the basis of "developing a plan to attempt to artificially alter the condition of the ball".

Part of the findings against Smith and Bancroft were that they had mislead both the umpires on the field of play, and the public in a press conference as to the "the nature, extent and participants of the plan". However, CA chief executive James Sutherland has insisted Lehmann was not involved.

Cricket Australia later supplied other media, including Reuters, with an audio file of the proceedings. "We love all our players and they're going through a really tough time", he said. Today they have travelled home to Australia.

"LG Australia will always look to work with ambassadors that share our core brand values and we take these relationships incredibly seriously".

"We need to change how we play and the boundaries within which we play", he said.

"I worry about the three guys immensely". The players are very sad, disappointed and remorseful about what has happened.

He said that India is among its top three markets after USA and Latin America and it accounts for 10 per cent of its global trips. The Business Standard report states that pst the completion of that deal, Uber will control 27.5% stake in the combined entity.

Meanwhile, Darren Lehmann will continue to coach the team.

The trio will be allowed to compete in club cricket, but can not take part in state or worldwide games for the duration of their bans. "Darren made those comments and Ian was satisfied he knew nothing of the plan".

"As a coach you feel for them as people", Lehmann said. The ruling prevents them competing in all top-level cricket in Australia.

Sutherland said he's not considered resigning as he has work to do.

Players were visibly upset. Tim Paine has officially been appointed the captain of the team.

It is a dramatic fall from grace for Smith, who has been compared to Don Bradman, the Australian widely recognised as the finest batsman in history.

He has been deeply shaken about how it has all gone off the rails for him so swiftly.

Smith and Warner have also been stood down from their Indian Premier League (IPL) teams for 2018, representing a significant loss of income after the Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad had paid $1.84-million respectively for their services. Along with Smith, he has also been ejected from this year's Indian Premier League, losing contracts worth almost US$2 million each.

Williamson acknowledged NZ had made a conscious effort in recent years to play in a way that demonstrated respect for opponents and the sport.

Bancroft has also technically been banned from leading the team until a year after his suspension runs out.

The CA board met for more than three hours on Wednesday to consider the penalties.
