    No more than they deserve

    Should've just forfeited the series, Would've been less painful than watching that **** they just dished up

    Don't bother with the last test and get these pric*s home

    Well done on the win SA

    Smith and Stark doing next to nothing this series. No surprise really as it's not flat track bullying over there.

    Playing classy opposition that challenges you unlike the poms or kiwis on our decks.

    Am a bit shattered by all of this, was a Smith fan long before captain, hard to believe that anyone in that position would attempt such a thing, I believe whole team/squad new as well as the coach. Suspensions, sackings and fines will result but damage will last a long long time.

    Ball tampering is considered on the lower end of offences.
    I,ve been searching punishments for ball tampering. Faf Du Plessis got a fine. Michael Atherton got a fine. Sri Lankan fast bowler in 2017 got a 75% match fee fine.
    Worst case sanction seems to be 1 match suspension.
    I don't like that this happened, but I think the whole national shame thing is over the top.
    Everyone else gets a slap on the wrist for this.

    The punishment will be short the memory and shame will last especially ALL those involved
