about the video

Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull described the cheating crisis in which captain Steve Smith admitted to masterminding a plot to change the ball’s condition during the third Test against South Africa on Saturday as a “shocking affront to Australia”. He demanded Cricket Australia to act decisively in investigating the incident. Turnbull added that authorities needed to crack down on sledging -- verbal abuse involving players on both sides -- if it wanted cricket to “once again (be) held up as a role model”.
