We were not aware that any foreign matter was brought into the field so that the ball could be changed. We did not know this until we saw the pictures on the big screen of Newlands. And those who insist on the fact that we are aware of the outsider, despite the lack of evidence, that just because we are bowlers, we are saying that the umpires of this test match Nigel Long and Richard Illingworth , Both are respected and experienced people. He had examined the ball after photographs appeared in TV coverage, which did not show any signs of damage to the ball.
‘What happened was wrong’

We are committed to the fact that we will keep improving to become better human beings and sportspersons. We are respectfully requesting that this rumor and taunt be cleared, it has gone a long way and now is the time to move forward.
