Ho­bart: South Africa cap­tain Faf du Plessis has been charged with ball tam­per­ing dur­ing the sec­ond Test against Aus­tralia in Ho­bart.

The In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC) said it would re­view footage of the match that ap­peared to show Du Plessis ap­ply­ing saliva to the ball with a lolly in his mouth. “The charge re­lates to chang­ing the con­di­tion of the ball in breach of Law 42.3 and has been laid by the ICC chief ex­ec­u­tive David Richard­son who has ex­er­cised his right to do so,” cricket’s gov­ern­ing body said in a state­ment.

“Du Plessis has pleaded not guilty to the charge ... De­tails of the hear­ing will be an­nounced in due course.” Reuters
