Reduce the penalty imposed by Cricket Australia on Steven Smith
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
As Captain Steven Smith has erred but no more than other's have in the past with regards to ball tampering, and his suspension is 12 months whereas other captains have mainly received a fine or 1-match suspension ... see here:
Ball tampering penalties
Atherton (94) - fined $3,700
Younis (00) - 1 match
Dravid (04) - 50% match fee
Afridi (10) - 2 T20 matches
Du Plessis (13) - 50% match fee
Du Plessis (16) - 100% match fee
As can be seen the penalty is not inline with that received by other players of the same offense, also since David Warner has been penned as the ringleader uncontrollable by Steven Smith, there must be some leniency ... rather than the harshness imposed by Cricket Australia and in particular that prat James Sutherland.
