Sutherland said that he was angry but maintained that it was "an isolated incident of significant concern".

On Saturday, Bancroft was caught using a foreign object on the ball and then hiding it down his pants and Smith later admitted the opener had been instructed to tamper with the ball by the team's "senior leadership" group.

Sutherland denied reports that Lehmann had offered to resign, underlining that the investigation had found that only the three now-sanctioned players were involved.

Angry and with his voice trembling at times, Australia's cricket chief announced Tuesday that team captain Steve Smith and two other players who plotted to cheat in a test in South Africa face "serious sanctions", which could end the global career of at least one of them.

"Ultimately, it is about whether Australians can feel proud of their national sporting teams".

CCTV footage showed Warner being restrained by team-mates as he appeared to lose his temper during a confrontation on a staircase as the players walked to their dressing rooms. "Like many, I am deeply troubled by the events in Cape Town this last week and acknowledge the thousands of messages I have received, mostly from heartbroken cricket followers worldwide", Waugh said today.

"The key finding is that prior knowledge of the ball tampering incident was limited to three players: Captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft", Sutherland was quoted as saying by

However, Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland says head coach Darren Lehmann was not involved in the controversy and will remain in his post.

Coach Darren Lehmann will continue in the position as he had no knowledge according to CA's preliminary inquiry.

Australian cricket's day of shame ended in a crushing 322-run defeat by South Africa on the fourth day of the third Test.

Australian cricket's investigation into the cheating plot that plunged its team into a reputational crisis has begun after two senior officials arrived in South Africa to start work. I completely agree with the ICC and member countries, member boards, including CA need to define more clearly what is expected of players and then enforce the standards in a consistent fashion.

Disappointed Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said: "We all woke up this morning shocked and bitterly disappointed by the news from South Africa".

Smith and Bancroft confessed to their roles in the plot, but Warner was not named formally as also being part of the cheating until Tuesday. Cricket's worldwide governing body fined him his entire payment for playing in the South Africa match. Waugh, who always believed in the sanctity of "Baggy Green" added: "The Australian Cricket team has always believed it could win in any situation against any opposition, by playing combative, skillful and fair cricket, driven by our pride in the fabled Baggy Green".

"I think it would be sufficient for them to be stripped of the captaincy and vice-captaincy".

"This has damaged the ability of the sport to inspire kids to play the game‚ love the game and idolise their heroes".

The ramifications of the scandal have been far-reaching with the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the guardian of the laws of the game, calling for a "major shift in attitude" to preserve the game for future generations.
