Do you have sympathy for him? He seems genuinely distraught.

Distraught. Disgraced. Devastated. Call it what they will, the leadership of the Australia team have dropped themselves into a ball-tampering debacle with the most junior player in the side, Cameron Bancroft, the man left standing in the dock. During a stunning press conference after day three of the third Test against South Africa here in Cape Town, Steve Smith freely stated that he had brought the game into disrepute with his direction in the matter but was adamant that he should keep the captaincy.
In a dramatic middle session Bancroft was seen pulling a yellow object from his pocket and rubbing it on the ball in an effort to scuff it to help achieve reverse swing. Upon realising that the move was spotted by the TV cameras, he was then seen hiding the object in his underwear.

Questioned by the umpires, Nigel Llong and Richard Illingworth, he maintained it was only a cleaning cloth being applied to the ball. The 25-year-old, in his eighth Test, later described that blatant lie as a product of panic at realising he had been caught.

Social media sites can be very unforgiving. Razz

I felt sympathy when I heard him on the radio yesterday, but watching the video, whilst it's clear he is genuinely upset, is it because he knows he has let everyone down, or it because he was caught?

Cheating in sport is sneaky and horrible, he does deserve to lose his captaincy...once found to be a cheat all respect has gone.

Its more than likely a combination of both Syl that he is genuinely upset and as he was caught

Anywa, have a good evening, have to go

Origins of sporting terms.

"Cricket: Keep Calm, And Bat On

A hat trick is a global term which is believed to have come about circa 1858 when the English cricketer HH Stephenson took three wickets in a row, and in honour of the remarkable feat was gifted a hat that was bought with money collected by the teams, which was customary at the time.
The phrase gained popularity, with the first official reference to it in print was in Australia’s The Sportsman publication in 1878, and it has since gone on to be used in a number of popular sports including football, rugby, and hockey.
Cricket has also given us a sticky wicket, a phrase that suggests things could be a little difficult. The earliest citation found was in Bell's Life in London in 1882: "The ground... was suffering from the effects of recent rain, and once more the Australians found themselves on a sticky wicket."
An individual effort can be described as doing something off your own bat, which was first cited in Cricket Scores in 1742: "The bets on the Slendon man's head that he got 40 notches off his own bat were lost.
And, of course, there’s the fabulously English phrase for bad behaviour: it’s simply just not cricket, old chap!"

Hub was watching that when he thought he saw something. Later it was shown, blatant cheating. Carting now as he got caught. Those involved should get a life ban. It tarnished the game when cheating is done.

My friend in Oz, loves cricket and her team, she was so angry, devastated, and disgusted.

National sporting heroes who turn out to ne cheats let their countries down.
No point is being sorry after they are caught, they shouldn't have cheated in the first place.
