#SandpaperGate has claimed its first victims.
Australian Captain Steve Smith, Vice-captain David Warner were sent home from South Africa and subsequently banned for 12 months for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal during the third Test against the Proteas at Newlands last weekend.
In addition, both Smith and Warner have been barred from captaining Australia for a period of two years.
Cameron Bancroft, who was also sent home, received a ban of 9 months.
