Minutes later, the Indian cricket board issued a release stating:"The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Wednesday took cognizance of the developments in the ball tampering incident involving Cricket Australia contracted cricketers – Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft".

Tim Paine will captain Australia in the final Test match in Johannesburg with reinforcements in middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell along with openers Joe Burns and Matt Renshaw scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

"In light of recent events, David Warner has stepped down as captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad", Sunrisers CEO K Shanmugam was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

An internal investigation, which is being helped by two International Cricket Council integrity officers, is under way.

It was only a month ago when Warner was the toast of Australian cricket, earning plaudits from teammates and coaches for the way he led the side to Twenty20 tri-series success in New Zealand.

United Kingdom introducing deposit return scheme for plastic bottles to reduce litter polluting
The rate could see consumers pay as much as 22p extra in an upfront deposit when they buy a drink, as is the case in Germany. Since a DPR scheme was introduced in Germany in 2009 nearly all of the plastic bottles in the country (99%) are recycled.

Smith and Bancroft confessed that, after a discussion during a break in play, they decided they would try to change the condition of the ball using a piece of yellow adhesive tape and some dirt collected from the side of the pitch. He was filmed with the tape and trying to hide it down the front of his pants.

However, Sutherland insisted Lehmann was not involved. Cameron Bancroft the player who was caught tampering with the ball has been banned for nine months. RR and SRH will be able to pick from players who went unsold at the 2018 IPL Auction.

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke, the man Smith succeeded in 2015, believes there is more to the story that meets the eye. Back at home, they are heavily criticized by the Australian media.

Warner has also lost his sponsorship deal with multinational electronics company LG.

Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland has promised "significant sanctions" against the trio, insisting they were the only members of the team in on the plot. "Welfare of all players is a highly relevant consideration", said Nicholson.
