Did the Australian cricket team cheat, again?

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 3 July 2023

The Australian cricket team are making new enemies and being accused of cheating at Lord's in the Ashes test series!

Their actions on the field incensed the spectators so much, the usually prim and proper Lord's crowd turned on the Australian players yelling abuse at them as they made their way to the changing rooms.

To recap what's happened and whether the Australians were cheating again Sky Sports producer and member of the alternative commentary collective James McOnie talks to Jesse.

Umpire Chris Gaffaney (C) explains to Australia's Pat Cummins (R) that the TV umpire Marais Erasmus has advised him that Australia's Mitchell Starc was not in control of a catch that would have dismissed England's Ben Duckett on day four of the second Ashes cricket Test match between England and Australia at Lord's cricket ground in London on July 1, 2023.
