TL;DR: Renshaw joins Australia squad for final Test

Share

The left-hander Queensland batsman, Matt Renshaw added to the Australian team for fourth and final Test against South Africa immediately after the JLT Sheffield Shield final in Brisbane.

Cricket Australia (CA) is expected to make an announcement about its investigation into the ball-tampering incident on Tuesday (South Africa time). Disgraced Australia cricket captain Smith was banned for one game as he and vice-captain David Warner stepped down from their roles on Sunday, March 25, 2018 amid a cheating scandal that has outraged their country and threatens a far more damaging fallout for one of the game's most exalted teams.

Queensland opener Matt Renshaw is flying to South Africa for the final Test. As a result, skipper Steven Smith and his deputy, David Warner, were removed from their posts, and opener Cameron Bancroft - protagonist of the incident - was slapped with 75 per cent of his match fees and three demerit points.

It put out several tweets on the matter. "The data in no way is stored or used by the third party services", it further explained. Rahul also accused the mainstream media of "burying this critical story, as always".

A decision on Darren Lehmann's future as Australia coach may also be announced by CA.

Renshaw was dropped at the beginning of the summer and Bancroft subsequently featured in the Ashes against England, which Australia won 4-0. Matthew Renshaw's inclusion comes after Cameron Bancroft's ball-tampering attempt was caught on camera. Ironically, Bancroft was chosen to replace Renshaw after the latter suffered a lean run of scores across Tests in India and Bangladesh before Australia's home season commenced.

Australians from the prime minister to former test captains to regular fans have expressed shock and disappointment, particularly with the involvement of Smith - the No. 1-ranked test batsman.
