Melbourne: Former Australia bowling coach David Sacker believes that Cricket Australia should make public its investigation report into the ball-tampering case in 2018 as he feels it may also put an end to questions related to the incident.
The issue of ball tampering came into the limelight again
The issue of ball tampering came into the limelight again recently when Cameron Bancroft, associated with the incident, indicated that the team’s bowlers were aware of a conspiracy to use sandpaper to distort the appearance of the ball. David Sakar was then the bowling coach of the team.
Former coach suddenly raised the demand to open the secret
David Sacker had said that he too could be held accountable for this incident. Bancroft, then captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were banned for this incident. “I don’t see any reason not to make it public, but how they want to handle the matter is up to them,” Sakar told local media.
questions will continue to arise
David Sacker was asked why Cricket Australia (CA) should make this report public, he said, ‘Because these questions will continue to arise and it may be that after making it public, such questions will be put to rest. Well I don’t think that will happen. The questions will still arise.
The plan was to achieve reverse swing
David Sacker said, ‘There is no doubt that I had no idea that Regmar was being used. All I knew was that the general strategy was being followed to get reverse swing with the ball.
