Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has confirmed that Faf du Plessis will appeal the ICC's ruling that found him guilty after the ball tampering drama that emerged after the second Test against Australia in Hobart. 

On Tuesday, Du Plessis was fined 100% of his match fee from the Test, but cleared to play in Thursday's third and final day/night Test in Adelaide.

Du Plessis was charged by ICC Chief Executive David Richardson after television footage appeared to show Du Plessis applying an artificial substance to the ball during the fourth day’s play in the second Test against Australia in Hobart.

The decision was based on the evidence given from the umpires, who confirmed that had they seen the incident they would have taken action immediately, and from Stephenson, who confirmed the view of MCC that the television footage showed an artificial substance being transferred to the ball.

But, according to a CSA representative, the decision will be appealed.
