Australia head coach Darren Lehmann on Wednesday apologised to the fans and asserted that the team would need to improve their behaviour on and off the pitch in order to win back their respect. On Wednesday, Cricket Australia slapped one-year bans on former skipper Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner besides announcing a 9-month ban on rookie Test opener Cameron Bancroft for their involvement in tampering with the ball during the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. Lehmann conceded that the trio has committed a blunder but said that they were “not bad people” and called for them to be given a second chance as he expressed concerns over their mental state.
