Tearful Australia coach Lehmann quits over cheat scandal

30 Марта 2018

Warner, who has lost two sponsors already, said posted a statement on Twitter and Instagram to say he is on his way back to Australia from South Africa and added: "You will hear from me in a few days".

"I will regret this for the rest of my life".

"All I can at this time is ask for forgiveness".

Former vice-captain Warner, who received a 12-month ban and cannot return to a leadership role, apologised to cricket fans "all over the world" in a post on Twitter on Thursday. "It has been my life and I hope it will be again", said while breaking down in tears repeatedly.

"I feel like I have let everyone down and I know it will take time to heal and earn respect from everybody".

"If any good can come for this... it can be a lesson for others".

Former skipper Smith and vice-captain Warner were banned for a year, and Bancroft for nine months after Cricket Australia (CA) held them guilty of conspiring to "change the condition of the ball" in last week's third test against South Africa.

"As I've stated before, I had no prior knowledge of the (ball-tampering) incident and do not condone the incident at all, but good people can make mistakes", Lehmann said, initially reading from a prepared statement.

"I've been so privileged and honoured to represent my country and captain the Australian cricket team". I love the game of cricket and playing for my nation and my state.

All three players were sent home from the tour and upon his return to Perth, Bancroft said: "I want to say that I'm very sorry". I don't blame anyone.

The Australian Cricketer's Association (ACA) has questioned "a number of glaring and clear anomalies" in the process leading to Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft being handed lengthy bans for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal. "I apologize for my part and take responsibility for it", he said.

"I have never ever been involved in tampering with the ball, it completely comprises my values and what i stand for as a player and as a person".

Magellan inked a three-year partnership in August 2017 as naming rights sponsor for Australia's domestic Tests in a deal estimated at the time to be worth Aus$$20 million.

Steve Smith, who has had the national team captaincy taken away, also addressed journalists upon arrival at Sydney Airport. Nearly simultaneously, sporting goods company ASICS announced it was ending its relationship with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, two of the players at the heart of the cheating incident.

Cereal company Sanitarium on Thursday said it was ending its relationship with Smith.

The ACA said the grading and sanctions for the players were well above what the ICC had implemented, and the bans were not reasonable on a world scale.
