The ball-tampering scandal had shaken the entire cricketing community as the Cape Town Test against South Africa saw the leadership group consisting of Steve Smith and David Warner cajoling Cameron Bancroft into using sandpaper to change the condition of the ball for getting an undue advantage. For this, Cricket Australia banned Bancroft for 9 months, while Steve Smith and David Warner were stripped of their captaincy and vice-captaincy respectively and banned for one year each.
