Australian test cricket scandal 'a bloody shame', Australian correspondent says

Australia correspondent Jason Morrison has said Australians are disgusted about the actions of their national cricket team.

The Australian test cricket team has been lambasted across the world after blatant video evidence emerged of player Cameron Bancroft tampering with the ball in the third test against South Africa in Cape Town.

"It's a bloody shame, it's disgraceful," Mr Morrison told the AM Show. 

"Probably the only class that's been shown in the last 24 hours was at least Steve Smith putting hand up and saying "yeah I did it". 

Captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were stood down for the remainder of the match which South Africa went on to win by 322 runs. 

Morrison said he was amazed the players thought they could get away with their decisions in an era when so much technology was watching and monitoring the game. 

"These blokes, when they come back to Australia, they don't know what's ahead of them. It will be hideous. People are so disgusted."

"What we do have is a ruthless team that has for probably three decades been able to pull out whatever it needed to do to win."
