Ponting: lack of leadership responsible for ball tampering scandal

Feb 14, 2020 13:15 IST

After almost 2 years of the infamous ball-tampering saga in South Africa, former Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting has contemplated a lack of leadership to be the driving force behind the scandal. In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, the 2-time World Cup-winning captain said that there were not enough experienced players to say no and things went out of control. Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft were suspended by Cricket Australia for ball-tampering which happened during the Cape Town Test in March 2018.
