Australia’s Cameron Bancroft raised controversy on Saturday when visuals appeared of him using a small yellow object, that looked like sandpaper, while cupping his hands on the ball on the third day of the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. The visuals further showed that after what appeared to look like ball tampering, he tried to hide the object in his underpants.
