Cricket ball tampering: Australia needs 'a clean-out' - Maxwell

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 26 March 2018

Cricket Australia is expected to take a tough stand against captain Steve Smith after he admitted ordering bowler Cameron Bancroft to tamper with the ball in their test match against South Africa in Capetown. Smith's apologised and has been suspended for one test match and fined by cricket's governing world body, the ICC. Lawrence Booth is the editor of Wisden - cricket's bible. He told Morning Report last hour the premedidated rule-breaking is a blatant offence and he expects Cricket Australia to take a much tougher stance than the ICC. Jim Maxwell joins us from Capetown.
