Lollygate: Faf Du Plessis guilty of ball tampering

Skipper Faf du Plessis was found guilty of ball tampering for the second time in just over three years.

He copped a fine but avoided a match ban. Du Plessis pleaded not guilty and faced a three-hour hearing with ICC match referee Andy Pycroft after he was charged with 'changing the condition of the ball in breach of Law 42.3' by the ICC CEO Dave Richardson following the tourists' victory in the Hobart Test.

The South Africa team were indignant about the hype surrounding their captain's actions and was involved in pushing and showing a reporter at the airport.
