They had some electrical tape and some small bits of grit stuck on it. This was not an angle grinder .
Not like Afridi biting the ball or DuPlies using a mint sweet.
They did not change the ball so why is it now such a big deal.
According to ICC it is no different than running on the pitch or throwing the ball in the dirt to change it.
Storm in a teacup and blown right out of proportion.
Because it is premeditated cheating. Afridi was always an idiot and got called out as such (and banned). I don't think the mint sweet actually had any effect on the ball.

Blatant cheating should not be tolerated or brushed under the carpet.

I am a massive cricket fan, originally from Yorkshire England. No gloating here from me. I actually feel sorry for this guy. I hope i'm not alone. Terrible.

Time for a joke . . . .
Billy was at school one morning and the teacher asked all the children what their fathers did for a living.

All the typical answers came out, fireman, policeman, salesman, chippy, captain of Industry etc, but Billy was being uncharacteristically quiet

And so the teacher asked him about his father.

"My father is an exotic dancer in a gay club and takes off all his clothes in front of other men.

Sometimes if the offer is really good, he'll go out with a man, rent a cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him."

The teacher quickly set the other children some work and took little Billy aside to ask him if that was really true.

"No" said Billy, “actually he plays cricket for Australia but I was just too embarrassed to say.
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

LOL

I also think it's been blown out of all proportion

Many bankers etc do far worse every day, but no one says a thing

England were ‘curious’ about tampering, claims Cook
AFP
April 26, 2018
LONDON (AFP) – Alastair Cook has revealed England’s players were “curious” about Australia potentially engaging in ball-tampering during the recent Ashes series.

Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were hit with long suspensions by Cricket Australia after they plotted to use sandpaper on the ball in their third Test with South Africa last month.

The shamed trio claimed that was their first instance of ball-tampering.

But the spotlight has now been put on the Ashes, with television footage since emerging of Bancroft putting sugar in his pocket.

Australia’s consistent ability to get reverse swing had England’s bowlers scratching their heads during their 4-0 series defeat.

Cook was part of the England side and he admitted on Tuesday that there were questions among his squad about the third Test in Perth.

Asked at a Chance to Shine event in Tunbridge Wells whether England suspected Australia of ball-tampering during the Ashes, he said: “Yes a little bit, certainly in Perth when the outfield was wet with rain they got the ball reversing."...
