After the recent deliberate ball-tampering incident that was done by Cameron Bancroft, a video is trending where Bancroft was putting some sugar in his pocket. It was the video during the 2017/18 Ashes series, where Australia won that series by the 4-0 margin.

In a CCTV footage, it was clearly viewing that Bancroft put a spoon of sugar in his pocket. However, the further details of that video have not come out yet.

Recently, after the controversial ball-tampering incident, England pacer Stuart Broad claimed that he felt it was not the first time Australian cricket team did that kind of ball-tampering. During the recent 2017/18 Ashes series, they observed unnatural reverse swing on the ball but they had no evidence to do anything against the Aussies.

He said, “I saw Steve Smith in his press conference said it was the first time they’ve tried it, which to me, seems really surprising why they’d change a method that’s been working. Look at the Ashes series that we’ve just played. You look through virtually all of those test matches and they reverse swung the ball in sometimes conditions that you wouldn’t expect the ball to reverse, so I don’t understand why they’ve changed their method for this one game.”

The 31-years old right-arm pacer further added, “Steve said it’s the first time they’ve tried it. There’s no evidence that they were doing this in the Ashes series, from what I’ve seen.”

The deliberate ball-tampering action has shaken the Australian cricket team. Australian skipper Steven Smith admitted that the leadership group knew about that and later he resigned from the captaincy role. Further, the vice-captain David Warner also gave up his role.
