SA will bounce back and win the series!
England will pile on the misery
The series will be drawn!
A joke! Nothing more than a slap on the wrist
As to be expected, the ICC punishment for ball-tampering is a 1-Test ban
Not the last we'll hear of this, Cricket Australia will throw the book at him
Rankings don't lie!
Give it time, SA will be No 1 shortly...
Who cares, so few countries even play Test cricket!
Yes, it's clear he no longer wants to play Test cricket for the Proteas
He's one of the best in the world, he can take a sabbatical for as long as he likes
He can consider himself very lucky. Not the first time either...
Fine and no ban sounds about right
He should appeal! Madness. Everyone does the same on the field - often worse...
AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla
Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers
Absolutely! He was already retired. 20 years ... 50 years ... makes no difference!
No sure what else CSA could have done to be honest
Fanie de Villiers
No stopping England!
Proteas will be too strong at home
Drawn series ...
Another local coach
They have to look abroad!
Far too lenient ... should've got life!
Spot on ... well played Cricket Australia
Harsh ... the ICC governing body were happy to clear Warner and Bancroft completely and give Smith a 1-Test ban
What a joke! No worse than several others who escaped any sanction
Perfectly fair. Makes no difference how good or bad a player is, just that he adheres to the law
Tough one, torn between 'he deserved a ban', and 'he should've been fined rather than banned'
Bad move. Beginning of the end for Test cricket
Good move. It'll make Test cricket more exciting
It doesn't matter. Test cricket has been dead for years
AB de Villiers was the skipper before his injury, he deserves to be reinstated
Faf du Plessis has a done fantastic job. He deserves to remain in charge
GO! He can't possibly go fast enough!
Best he stays. There honestly is no one better available
Don't care either way, no coach could get the Proteas to win consistently
Absolutely! If he's good enough and eligible, why not?
Hells bells no!
I believe CSA. No SMS from CEO Haroon Lorgat was sent. The team was picked on merit - and just wasn't good enough on the day
Mike Horn's comments that there WAS political interference to some degree
Right now, the tooth fairy in more believable!
Definitely! Hollow win. Can't consider yourself the best until you've beaten everyone
Such is life - and the tournament draw wasn't Australia's fault
Enough with this CWC already! Yawn.
