The latest judgement on the dire actions of Australian cricketers Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft is out! After confessing to ball-tampering, Captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner have both been banned for 12 months by Cricket Australia for their involvement. While batsman Cameron Bancroft, who was actually caught on camera tampering with the ball, has been banned for nine months.

But if you think that these were the only consequences they had to face, then you’re wrong!

With IPL season 11 just round the corner, IPL Commissioner Rajeev Shukla has announced that both Smith and Warner will not be playing this season.
