Veteran Australian fast bowler Ryan Harris has dismissed opener David Warner's remarks on South Africa 'tampering with the ball' and said that the Australian team has distanced themselves from the allegations.


Warner had suggested that South African wicketkeeper AB de Villiers used his gloves to tamper with the ball during the second Test in Port Elizabeth, for which he was subsequently fined 15 percent of his match fee.

According to Sport24, Harris said that Warner's comments were correctly dealt with as they were wrong and admitted that South Africa was simply better at getting the ball to reverse swing than them.

Stating that the umpires would have taken action if South Africa or De Villiers had done something illegal, Harris further said that throwing the ball on the ground from the outfield and roughing one side up is the whole idea of reverse swing bowling.

On the playing side, Harris said his team would have to up their game to compete with the hosts who won the second Test convincingly, to square the series at 1-1.

The third and final Test starts at Newlands, in Cape Town, on Saturday, and Harris said Australia would be up for the challenge.
