Whinging hypocrites. Apart from institutional ball tampering, they've had the nerve to complain about South African crowds given the Aus players a bit of lip.

I'm loving it!

How does tape affect the ball? (Not familiar with cricket.)
Any good for doing the stripes on the car?
Should vote cold as not sandpaper.

Heat if Smith resigns.
Deserves heat for the topical ribbing of the Aussies!
Brilliant

No, they used tape to pick up grit in order to rough the ball up

The tape would be used to stick coarse granules to it, effectively turning it into sandpaper, then that would be rubbed into the ball as an abrasive. Just as players "polish" the ball on their trousers, this would consistently be done to one side or part of the ball, and over many overs start to affect how the ball turns or bounces when bowled.

Alternatively trying to damage the ball to convince the umpire to move to a new ball.

Roughing one side and shining the other encourages swing. To help the shine some people eat boiled sweets and then use their sticky saliva the enhance the shine. Testing was done to find the best sweets.

To rough it up, then a variety of techniques are used, from dirt to scuffing it etc. Using sticky tape to make sandpaper is very sly, even worse when premeditated and the captain knew about it. Both should be sacked. Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time I dont think, caught in the act more like
Hahahaaa
LOOOL

Ahh okay, thanks!
Tape on a half a tennis ball. Swings just like the pink ball 😁
This tape is neither yellow nor sticky so would be useless for Cricket Australia! Back to the drawing board.
Heat for the title
Is this glow in-the-dark?

Kindest regards
Or this as endorsed by British cycling for all their riders Cj0KCQjwkd3VBRDzARIsAAdGzMA4zO7sjGzeQUmdpqcnZM2RWSas9KmtUjf2gPwPEvFusuE3YyH5E1oaAvJBEALw_wcB
Organised cheating after institutionalized sledging. Another feather
What a stupid plan- glad they’re getting their just deserts.
The Russians were caught doping at the Olympics and the Australians have just been caught being dopes during the Cricket. Quite fitting really.
They should be like England. Real men use dirt not tape
One to buy if endorsed by Australian Cricket Team....hot for me
