There is speculation that Cricket Australia is poised to sack coach Darren Lehmann in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal, while Steve Smith has stood down as captain of Indian Premier League team the Rajasthan Royals. Smith and David Warner are at risk of losing lucrative IPL contracts due to their role in the controversy. CA could also potentially impose 12-month bans on both players, in addition to penalties already announced by the International Cricket Council. Meanwhile, the Australian team’s tactics have come under further scrutiny, with English fast bowler Stuart Broad raising concerns about possible ball-tampering during the 2017-18 Ashes series.
