I am Extremely Disappointed and Regret My Actions: Bancroft

James Sutherland

"To cricket fans in Australia and all over the world: I am now on my way back to Sydney". Bancroft was banned for nine months after using sandpaper to scratch the surface of the ball during the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town in an incident that sent shockwaves through the sport and that he said he would regret "for the rest of his life".

The 28-year-old said that it was an "error of judgement" and that it was a "failure of leadership, my leadership". Mistakes have been made which has damaged cricket.

Sydney Sky Sports Radio radio breakfast host Terry Kennedy says the Australian ball tampering saga has finished David Warner's career for the national team.

Smith, who has been replaced as captain by Tim Paine and will not be considered for a leadership position for two years, was banned from worldwide and domestic action for 12 months following a Cricket Australia (CA) investigation into the incident at Newlands. I panicked in that situation and I'm very sorry ... "The other guy I really don't care about".

The International Cricket Council's (ICC) chief executive Dave Richardson said the review has been launched following "one of the worst periods in recent memory for consistently poor player behaviour and the global outcry in relation to the ball tampering is a clear message to cricket: enough is enough".

Australia's cricket player Cameron Bancroft is escorted by police officers to the departure area at OR Tambo International airport in Johannesburg. It is my life and I hope it can be, again, ' Smith added. It was on the cards that Cricket Australia would have to take a stronger view.

Lehmann then interrogated players himself at tea on day three of the test in Cape Town. "They'll support you if they see that, and they'll forgive you".

Asked about Warner's culpability - and the suggestion that Smith's failing being drawn into the conspiracy - he said he did not blame others.

"The first I saw of it was on that screen and the first thing I did was to get onto the walkie-talkie and I said something to Peter‚" he said.

'Cricket is the greatest game in the world.

I would like to apologise to the Australian public and the cricket family.

"The decisions and actions taken by David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are not something that ASICS tolerates and are contrary to the values the company stands for", the company said in a statement.

Bancroft, who said he was not proud of letting everyone in Australia down, did not mention Warner or Smith by name. - Under the Future Tours Programme, Australia could play India, South Africa and Lanka between Oct 2018 and Jan 2019. "For me to carry that out in front of world cricket and to be seen breaking the laws of the game, not playing within the spirit of the game, it's completely how cricket shouldn't be played".
