    Exclamation Stuart Broad Ball Tampering: South Africa v England 2010, 3rd Test



    Summary of the incident







    AB de Villiers critical of England in 'tampering' row


    South Africa's AB de Villiers says an official complaint should have been made about alleged ball-tampering by England in the third Test in Cape Town.

    James Anderson appeared to pick at the ball and, in a separate incident, Stuart Broad stopped it with his foot.

    South Africa raised concerns about the ball's condition but opted against complaining to referee Roshan Mahanama.

    "I think there should be a formal complaint, because the ball did reverse [swing] afterwards," said De Villiers.

    "There was quite clearly a piece of leather off the ball after he'd [Broad] stepped on it - and it's not the first time it happened.

    "It's a little bit naughty. I wouldn't say he deserves to be banned - but it should be looked at, definitely.
    "It's not on to be climbing on to the ball with your spikes. We all like to get the ball to reverse all over the show, as long as you do it in a legal way."

    England coach Andy Flower backed his bowlers, while the International Cricket Council confirmed it had received no official complaint from South African team management about any opposition player.
    In addition, the umpires had viewed relevant footage without feeling the need to bring any charges, and the deadline for any action had passed, so the ICC viewed the matter as closed.

    England broke laws of the game - Vaughan

    Former England captain Michael Vaughan told BBC Radio 5 live: "It certainly looks like Jimmy Anderson has had some kind of play on the ball.

    "If it was Pakistan what would we make of it? It's a very delicate situation."

    Former England captain Nasser Hussain said of Anderson's actions: "I think he's just beyond what is acceptable.

    "He's not gouging it. He's just fiddling with the rough side of the ball and I think that's a very dangerous area to get into."

    Meanwhile

    England faced a huge fight to save the third Test after ending day four on 132-3 needing 466 to beat South Africa.

    Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook saw off the first 36.3 overs, but both fell midway through the final session after putting on 101 for the first wicket.

    Kevin Pietersen could only last 22 balls before falling lbw playing across his stumps to paceman Dale Steyn.
    The Proteas had declared on 447-7 some 40 minutes after lunch, leaving England more than a day and a half to survive.

    With Strauss and Cook seeing off the new ball and the hot sun beginning its descent behind Table Mountain, the many England fans at Newlands began to hope against hope.

    But Jonathan Trott (24 not out), nightwatchman James Anderson and the remaining six batsmen will have to withstand the South African attack for a full day to protect their 1-0 series lead heading to the final Test at the Wanderers

    Disgusting!!! Both Broad and Anderson should be banned from all forms of Cricket for at least 5 years. And some strict action should be taken against England team as well.
    It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life so interesting. . .
