Did we cheat to win the Ashes too?

Vaughan - who has been an outspoken critic of the ongoing Australian saga - argued the vice-captain used an excessive amount of tape in the third South African Test which may have been used to alter the ball.

Captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner stood down in disgrace before day four of the match in Cape Town.

Stuart Broad, who is now in New Zealand playing the first Test against New Zealand in Auckland, said that Australia were getting reverse swing in England and couldn't understand why Steve Smith & Co. needed to change the conditions of the ball if it was indeed the first time Australia have indulged in ball-tampering.

"This looks more like a premeditated, "We are going to tamper with the ball".

The Times of India, the cricketing superpower's best selling English daily, called the Australia side "Repeat Offenders", listing six other controversial incidents they have been involved in the past.

He has been stripped of the Australian captaincy, which is being taken over by Tim Paine on a full-time basis. Earlier today, CA handed one-year bans to Smith and Warner , and nine months to Bancroft .

"I am pretty sure it was going on throughout the Ashes series - but it was not the reason England lost 4-0".

As soon as Cameron Bancroft confessed his guilt over a shameful ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, England were quick to jump on the victim bandwagon.

Despite this, Root did not notice anything to make him suspicious of the fact that Australia had tampered with the ball during the Ashes.

"So I can't understand why you'd come out and moan about a different country and what they are saying to their players".

"The guys who are in the limelight have a responsibility to play cricket in the right way". "You look through virtually all of those test matches and they reverse swung the ball in sometimes conditions that you wouldn't expect the ball to reverse, so I don't understand why they've changed their method for this one game".

However, Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland insisted Lehmann was not aware of the plot. "No other players or support staff had prior knowledge and this includes Darren Lehmann, who despite inaccurate media reports, has not resigned from his position", said Sutherland.

"Just from the outside, it looks like Australia have started a lot of fights and then moaned when someone comes back".

The footage has raised further questions about the integrity of the Australian squad.

Broad said he had to take Smith's word that they had not used that tactic before.

The Sydney Morning Herald took a similar tack, claiming the other players had turned on Warner in the belief that he had attempted to "throw them under the bus".
