Du Plessis hints at 'ball tampering' by Oz bowlers in third Test
South African cricketer Faf du Plessis has now reportedly turned the tables on the visitors by claiming that something was amiss about the ball reversing so early on the third day of the decisive third Test at Newlands.
Insinuations of ball tampering continue in the South African series with Du Plessis now being the one to cast doubts on the Australians' performance at Cape Town, where Ryan Harris gained reverse swing and the wicket of Hashim Amla in the 29th over near the end of the extended first session.
According to News.com.au, Du Plessis said that something was fishy about the ball reversing so early as Australia gained the upper hand in the decisive Test match, with a 234-run lead at stumps with a full complement of second innings wickets.
Du Plessis, who was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for ball tampering in a Test match against Pakistan last year, further said that he was surprised to see the ball reverse from Australia's side, adding that he believes the ball started reversing after 27 overs, especially after rain and a wet outfield.
The report mentioned that South Africa complained when Warner suggested there was something amiss about the way Proteas' wicketkeeper AB de Villiers would work the ball vigorously in his gloves after the second Test at Port Elizabeth.
