Sandpaper gate

Australia were 3 test matches in when this event happened. It was the third day when Bancroft tampered with the ball. This caused outrage. Australians say they base themselves on not cheating and playing hard but fair. The whole Australian team changed in personal. Where are those 11 players now?

  1. David Warner, he is enjoying a very good IPL and has been picked in the World Cup squad. He has proved a lot of people (including me) wrong.
  2. Cameron Bancroft, on his return from his ban he enjoyed a fairly successful Bug Bash. He is now doing very well in England for Durham. As captain in the 50 over Competition, and all the others, he has scored back to back not out 100’s.
  3. Usman Kywhaja, Usman has been quite inconsistent of late. He excelled in 50 over cricket and secured himself a one day spot.
  4. Steve Smith, Steve has recovered very well from the incident. Rajasthan made him captain for them and he has performed well in the IPL. He will be wanting to prove people he can still do it this summer.
  5. Shaun Marsh, he has done well since this game. He has made sure of himself for the ashes, well Unless a really bad run of form, and world cup.
  6. Mitchell Marsh. He hasn’t done well. Since this game, he has fallen out of all Australian teams.
  7. Tim Paine, he has done well as a captain but is more known now for his sledging then performances. He hasn’t been picked in Australia’s world cup squad.
  8. Pat Cummins, pat has exceeded since this game. He is now Australia’s main wicket-taker in all formats.
  9. Mitchell Starc he has not done very well. He has been injured and hasn’t done very well. Too expensive and not enough wickets.
  10. Nathon Lyon, he has made himself one of the best spin bowlers in the world. Also, he has forced himself back into the white ball scene. He is also now in the world cup squad.
  11. Josh Hazelwood, he has been very consistent and remained in the team.
