Australia captain Steve Smith is banned for one match and fined his entire match fee over ball-tampering.

Australia captain Steve Smith has been banned for one match and fined his entire match fee by the ICC after a ball-tampering incident in the third Test against South Africa. Smith said that the team's "leadership group" had a plan, carried out by batsman Cameron Bancroft, to tamper with the ball to "get an advantage". Smith will now miss the fourth and final Test of the series. Bancroft was fined 75 per cent of his match fee and given three demerit points.
