Common practice is to use spit or sweat to polish and smoothen one half of the ball to aid in reverse swing. That they are garnering little empathy from any corner shows what the rest of the cricketing world thinks of them.
The much-publicized footage showed Bancroft using a foreign substance - a yellow tape to illegally alter the condition of the red cherry and stuffing it in his trousers to escape action from on-field umpires during the third day of the Test, which Australia lost by a massive 322-run margin.
Shortly after the ball-tampering row broke out, Smith said it was all planned by the leadership group and the coaching staff had nothing to do with it.
The fate of Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft is expected to be become clear today.
Lehmann is yet to make any public comment about the scandal since television cameras first caught opening batsman Bancroft attempting to scuff up the ball with concealed tape on Saturday night (AEDT).
He was filmed not only rubbing the ball with the dirtied tape but concealing the evidence down the front of his pants.
After the match was over, Steve Smith admitted to the tampering.
Smith originally vowed to continue as captain and learn from the furore but it was confirmed on Sunday morning that both he and vice-captain David Warner had agreed to stand down from their posts for the remainder of the match at Newlands, leaving Tim Paine in charge. He has been banned from one test match and he has been fined 100% of the match's fee. Bancroft was fined 75 per cent of his remuneration. Also, Benchoft's share has reached three DeMarit points.
"Cricket Australia updated us on this issue as the story broke yesterday and we're continuing to follow this issue closely", a spokesperson added.
Sutherland, who is under enormous pressure to strip Smith of the captaincy, will meet Roy and Howard before discussing likely punishments with CA's board. With ball-tampering accusations and unsightly images of Cameron Bancroft of Australia trying to manipulate the exterior of the cricket ball caught on camera, have raised ample questions regarding the extent of the discrepancy and for how long it's been in motion.
And he also thinks the silence from vice-captain David Warner since the incident speaks a thousand words.
David Warner's hellish tour to South Africa has seen him lose favour with teammates after fresh reports of the 31-year-old being the main instigator in the third Test's ball tampering scandal emerged.
