Australian Cricket Scandal - update

Just to let you know how seriously the Australian Cricket Board is taking this latest ball tampering incident.
The Australian Captain Steve Smith and his Vice Captain Dave Warner have been 'asked' to relinquish their respective positions and the Captaincy has been handed to another senior player not involved in the disastrous ball tampering incident.
This situation will remain until a full investigation is carried out by the appropriate officials from Australia.

Here is an update from James Sutherland who is the CEO of Australian Cricket:
 "To our Australian Cricket Fans,
 I would like to provide you with an update on the situation with the Australian Men’s Cricket Team and the investigation currently underway into what transpired at Cape Town.
 Our Head of Integrity will arrive in South Africa shortly to continue his inquiries around the specifics of the ball tampering incident.
 I am traveling to South Africa this evening, arriving on Tuesday morning local time, at which point I will meet with our Head of Integrity to understand the findings of the investigation to that point, and to consider the outcomes.
 We are aiming to be in a position to fully update the Australian public on the investigation and outcomes on Wednesday morning AEDT.
We understand the strong interest everyone has in this situation and we are following due process to properly address all of the relevant issues involved. We recognise how important the fans are to our game, and this process is the beginning of restoring your faith in Australian Cricket.
 James Sutherland Chief Executive Officer - Cricket Australia"

The sooner this is sorted out the better, it will take years to recover from this scandal and I hope that the people involved will receive the punishment they deserve.
 In my opinion, they should not represent our country again.
