David Warner quits as Sunrisers Hyderabad captain after ball-tampering scandal

David Warner quits as Sunrisers Hyderabad captain after ball-tampering scandal

After being cleared of any wrongdoing from the ball tampering scandal, the news of his resignation came as a giant shock. It's been a wonderful experience coaching the Australian cricket team.

The shock decision was also one that Lehmann attributed back to wanting to spend more time with his family.

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke has voiced his concerns for the wellbeing of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft following the ball tampering saga.

Cricket Australia have banned Smith and Warner for a year for cheating during the third Test in South Africa. It's devastating and I'm truly sorry.

"Around the world, ball-tampering is considered cheating".

Sutherland further added that the Australian team, who are still to play one Test match at Johannesburg where they can save the series by winning the contest, will be led by Tim Paine.

Bancroft - who was suspended for nine months for using sandpaper to ball tamper - faced the media at a press conference at the WACA on Thursday night.

"I really feel for Steve, as I saw him crying in front of the media". Not sure if this is the right punishments, but these players will need accept it & learn from this. No one knew about the plan other than these three.

David Warner, identified by Cricket Australia as a central figure in the ball-tampering scandal, has has issued his first public statement since the events of the Cape Town Test, apologising for "the distress he has caused the sport and its fans".

Smith and Warner are in danger of being fired permanently from their positions and even expelled from the team.

"Speaking to the players and saying goodbye was the toughest thing I've ever had to do".

"Watching those two young men in the face of the media, I'm sure David will be the same, it's been unbelievable".

"It is about how we play the game", Peever concluded. Think about who you're affecting. "You're affecting your parents and to see the way my old man's been, it hurts".

"It was a failure of leadership, my leadership".

There is no hyperbole involved when Australians describe the cricket captaincy as the country's second most important job behind that of prime minister and the concept of playing "hard, but fair" has always been integral to the national identity.

'If any good can come of this, if there can be a lesson to others then I hope I can be a force for change. I am absolutely gutted. "I've arrived in South Africa earlier this morning".

"I did send him a text", South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said in Johannesburg. "You don't want to see guys going through that stuff". Cricket is my life and hope it can be again. All I can do is ask for forgiveness.

Matthew Renshaw, Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns have been called up to replace the trio.

SuperSport presenter Mike Haysman says that he was a surprised by the announcement from Lehmann and understood that he was under tremendous strain since the Cape Town test. People know how much I've worked to get here.

Sutherland said that internal investigation, which also included two International Cricket Council integrity officers, had not been completed, but will be in the next 24 hours and the three players can expect serious punishments after that. "I panicked in that situation".
