‘Sick of ball-tam­per­ing talk’

Sport360 - - Australia V India -

Aus­tralia skip­per Tim Paine says he is sick of all the ball-tam­per­ing talk and it is time to move on and focus on halt­ing In­dia from win­ning their first Test se­ries Down Un­der.

The scan­dal in March has haunted Aus­tralian cricket, with Steve Smith and David Warner banned and a swathe of ex­ec­u­tives from the gov­ern­ing body axed or fall­ing on their swords in the af­ter­math. “There has been so much talk in the last 10 months that ev­ery­one is sick of it,” the wick­et­keeper bats­man said ahead of Aus­tralia’s first home Test since “sand­pa­per­gate” in South Africa. “There has been so much talk, it’s time for ac­tion. There are 11 guys go­ing out and try­ing their best who will be so keen be­cause of what has gone on so far.”
