It's not within the spirit of the game, my integrity or the team's integrity, the leadership group's integrity has all come to question and rightly so.

Smith and Warner have also been barred from this year's Indian Premier League, losing contracts worth almost $2 million each, while Bancroft received a nine-month ban from all worldwide and domestic cricket.

"Any consideration of future leadership would be conditional on acceptance by fans and the public, form and authority among the playing group".

Backing up the team coach he said: "Darren Lehmann had no prior knowledge".

The incident took place during South Africa's innings on Saturday afternoon when Bancroft was seen on television holding a foreign object while rubbing the ball, before hiding the object in his pocket, then inside his pants.

David Warner was the ringleader behind the scandal which has seen him, captain Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft hit with lengthy bans.

"In light of recent events, David Warner has stepped down as captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad", Sunrisers chief executive K. Shanmugam said on the team's Twitter.

The trio have the right to appeal against their sanctions, but if they accept the punishment Australia will be missing two of the best batsman in the world for at least a year.

All three players, sent home from South Africa, will be permitted to play club cricket to maintain links with the cricket community.

The trio are suspended from all global and domestic cricket, and all three players will be required to undertake 100 hours of voluntary service in community cricket.

According to, the CA Board, comprised of Chairman David Peever, Earl Eddings, Dr Bob Every, John Harnden, Tony Harrison, Jacquie Hey and Michelle Tredenick as well as former Test players Mark Taylor and Michael Kasprowicz, convened for two-and-a-half hours on Wednesday to determine the sanctions imposed on the guilty three. As per the punishment handed out, the players have been banned from all elite Australian cricket, although they can play grade cricket. "No one else was aware", Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland told reporters here.

"The players have made a grave mistake but they are not bad people", Lehmann said.

Warner, who CA claim orchestrated the ball-tampering ploy, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft have all been charged.

Without an IPL berth next month, Smith could now seek a county cricket deal as it would allow the world's No. 1 Test batsman to prepare fully for defences of both the World Cup and the Ashes in England next year.

Matthew Renshaw, who earned a recall to the Test set-up earlier on Wednesday, Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns will take their place while Tim Paine will take on captaincy duties.
