Never said he wasnt and I agree he's the best in the world but once a cheat always a cheat.

Ironically Warner’s gone the other way, what’s he averaged this series? 10? Smith? Over a hundred surely

What he and the other Australians did was wrong and they were punished.

Sport is so competitive nowadays and winning so important that sometimes people cross the line.

Smith is a superb cricketer and I can forgive one mistake.

Don't think Warner is even averaging 10. The cheat is up at something silly like 145!!!

Anderson and Broad are not exactly whiter than white when it comes to ‘adjusting’ the condition of the ball though, are they?

Did they both get banned for a year though?

There's adjusting and there's adjusting! 😉😁

They were just better than us.
When your tail are your best batsmen you are never going to win a series.

PS. I don’t really like Cricket or Rugby. In fact apart from a distance F1 like, I actually don’t like any other sport much.
Not even sure I like football much anymore these days. :(

Yep they probably were but they would have struggled to score as many runs if Smith hadn't been there.

Like I say well played Aussies - fingers crossed we win at the Oval to level the series!
