Vaughan’s comments drew mixed reactions from fans. Some welcomed his suggestion to move on as the scandal was a thing of the past, while others put a close scrutiny on bowlers with knowledge of the fiasco.
The rest responded by putting Cricket Australia at the center of their concerns.
More likely would know. Warner suddenly ceased to be responsible for maintaining the balloon. The actual event was so awkward and ill-conceived that it bordered on pathos. The referees didn’t even see any evidence of tampering with the ball, did they? The act of trying was enough and the punishment assured.

I love the way your opinions divide people Michael. I totally agree with this one, let’s move on now. I’m English, but the reaction to all of this was overblown at the time, so let’s not dig it up again.

Absurdity. This shows that CA took the easy option and effectively turned a blind eye to the collective cheating, leaving the option to continue.

Cameron Bancroft, one of three probable Australian cricketers who orchestrated the scandal, recently revealed that more than three people may have been aware of the Sandpaper Gate.
Bancroft said in an interview that his offenses of the day directly put bowlers in an advantageous position and that, as a result, their awareness of ball handling was likely “straightforward.”
The cricket world was rocked in March 2018, when the Australian trio of Bancroft, Steve Smith and David Warner were caught changing the state of the ball live on camera during the Cape Town test against Africa. South.
The incident has been called a “Sandpaper Gate” scandal.
