Australian Big Bash star Chris Lynn shocked the cricket world in a revelation saying, the amount of ‘ball tampering’ is far more extended than anyone can think; he said, “every cricketer’ engaged in this forbidden art in one stage of their career.
“I reckon every cricketer’s probably done it throughout their career in grade cricket or whatever level,” he said.
“But obviously not to that extent. I think Faf du Plessis said when he got done he was more ball-shining than tampering.
“There’s a fine line between all that stuff,” Lynn said a couple of hours later after former South African pacer Fanie de Villiers revealed his tipping off to the cabin crews to the ball tampering incident.
The admission of deliberate ball tampering by Australian skipper Steven Smith and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft broke the myth of Aussie cricket culture while engorging them under deep scratches for the forthcoming future.
