Twitter Reactions: Steve Smith banned for one match after ball-tampering incident

Australia captain Steve Smith has been given a one-match suspension and fined 100 percent of his match fee for his part in ball-tampering incident during the third test against South Africa in Cape Town, the International Cricket Council recently said in a statement.


Smith, who stepped down from the captaincy on Sunday morning, had accepted the charge, cricket’s global governing body further said.

Also, the Australia opener Cameron Bancroft has been fined 75 percent of his match fee and handed three demerit points after he was caught on camera tampering with the ball.


Meanwhile, after ICC announced the punishment for both Smith and Bancroft, Twitter wasn’t ready to spare the former Aussie skipper either for his unsportsmanlike behaviour and for marring the sanctity of the “Gentleman’s game”.

Here are some Twitter reactions:
