Notably, every player has the right to challenge a verdict and also the duration of their penalties via a Cricket Australia code of behaviour.

All three players involved have been sent home ahead of the fourth and final Test in Johannesburg, which the tourists must win to square the series, with Matt Renshaw, Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns called up as replacements.

"This is not in the laws of the game, it is not in the spirit of game and I am angry and disappointed".

Steve Smith should learn the "significant sanctions" he faces later on Wednesday as Australia coach Darren Lehmann prepared to face the media for the first time in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal, but, according to reports, he and David Warner could be in line for a serious punishment.

The 1 NEWS Sport reporter say there may be more fallout from the scandal after Smith, Warner and Bancroft were cut from the Test squad.

Mr Smith coached the Australian captain until his mid-teens and it was clear the skipper showed enough potential to play senior state cricket.

Bancroft used a strip of yellow sticky tape to pick up dirt and illegally roughen one side of the ball to generate more swing for Australia's bowlers.

Smith, the star of Australian cricket after leading the team to a 4-0 Ashes rout of England a few months ago, is expected to be fired as captain. "It is a very hard time for members of Australian cricket; however, I believe there is a golden opportunity to reset the dial around player and staff behaviours, actions and decision-making", he told reporters.

And World Cup-winning coach Buchanan said Warner needs to have a good look at himself if he is to remain in Australia's future plans.

Tim Paine has been appointed the new captain for the Men's cricket team. He was filmed with the dirtied tape and then trying to hide it down the front of his pants.

The incident dates back to the third day's play in the Cape Town Test against South Africa.

"We want Australian cricket fans to be proud of the Australian cricket is important to rebuild that confidence and trust and pride", he said.

Combined with lost earnings from playing for Australia, Smith and Warner will now miss out on a staggering sum of upwards of $4 million each over the next 12 months, not taking into account lost sponsorships.

The hosts enjoyed a record-breaking victory at Newlands, crushing the tourists by 322 runs to add indignity to ignominy.

The bans leave the careers of the players on hold, but the damage to the reputation of all three will likely be much more long-lasting and for Warner, 31, it may well spell the end of his global career.
