Re: Aussies admit to ball tampering against South Africa

Smith, Warner and Bancroft sent home, heavy sanctions to follow

Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are facing "significant sanctions" over Australia's ball-tampering scandal, according to Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland, but coach Darren Lehmann appears set to survive for now at least.

Due to an ongoing investigation it will not be until Wednesday local time here that penalties against Smith, Warner and Bancroft are announced, but the trio would be sent back to Australia on Wednesday.

In an indication of the severity of the sanctions expected, particularly against Smith and Warner, Sutherland confirmed CA would come down very hard to "reflect the gravity of the situation".

He said it had been established that only three players had prior knowledge of the scandalous episode during the third Test against South Africa at Newlands on Saturday.

While Smith, Warner and Bancroft are facing the music - lengthy bans are expected, and Smith and Warner are set to be stripped of the captaincy and vice-captaincy respectively - Sutherland denied reports that Lehmann was resigning. The head coach's position will be scrutinised, however, in an upcoming independent review of the culture of the Australian team.

"No other players or support staff had prior knowledge. This includes Darren Lehmann," Sutherland said.

"He will continue to coach the Australian men's team under his current contract (which runs until the end of the 2019 Ashes)."
