When ever they play the Aussies then they always seem to try break a team that's in form.

I'm sure if u review footage from most (if not all) cricket matches u would see players doing the exact same thing (with or without malicious intent) whether it be mints, bubblegum, lip balm etc.. yes he is guilty but this is a classical tale of its only cheating if u get caught.. the only way to solve this issue like Ganguly said is to ban all sweets, mints, lip balm or whatever external substances players consume or apply to themselves but the chances of that happening are slim to nothing

Like I said before, the ICC gets controlled by the Aussies and India. Somebody is sour grapes....

David Warner has said Australia would never behave the way the proteas are he should talk using lip balm then rubbing his lips and then shining the ball in south Africa where they lost 5 zip as Jeff probst of survivor would say in any case they would keep quiet seeing they are on the losing side wouldn't dare say a word

I think Faf was charged previously for ball tampering. Wasn't he rubbing the ball against his zipper to rough it up?

Quite correct plus he skidded the ball illegally across the pitch in the first test and got warned. People fail to see that he is starting to break rules more and more frequently. Thry are watching him like a hawk

For some unknown reason they can't get the ball to reverse,will end up using all kinds of excuses.World Cup winners or not,they can't reverse swing a cricket ball... #cricket101

Shining a cricket ball, while eating a sweet, is NOT corruption.
