Sydney: The Australian team’s ball tampering controversy has been in constant discussion for some time now. Many veteran players have given their feedback on this matter. Now the statement of the former assistant coach of the Australia team has also come out on this matter. David Saker, former assistant coach of the Australia team, believes that the report of the ball-tampering controversy in 2018 should be made public. Saker was involved as an assistant coach in the 2018 Cape Town Test, where the controversy took place. He says that the report of the matter should be made public, which led to the banning of David Warner, Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft.
After being appointed coach of the Melbourne Renegades men’s team, Saker said, "I do not see any reason why this report cannot be made public. But it is up to Cricket Australia how it wants to handle the matter."
he said, "Questions are being raised on this matter, but if this report is made public, then the question may stop being raised. Although I don’t think it will happen." Last month, Bancroft indicated that Australian bowlers were aware of ball tampering.
Saker said, "I told everything I had seen. I don’t know if sandpaper was used or not. As far as I know, we were using the usual strategy to reverse swing the ball."
