‘May end other shenanigans’: Chappell gives radical change to end ball-tampering

To tackle the issue, Chappell suggested a radical move that he believes may end the issue of players altering the condition of the ball using illegal means.

The 2018 Newlands Test ball-tampering scandal has led to incessant debates over the years. The controversy that saw Australia’s Steve Smith and David Warner facing a 12-month ban, and Cameron Bancroft being handed a nine-month ban, recently reignited once again, and it has also led to discussions on the dying art of swing-bowling in modern-day cricket.

Former Austalia captain Ian Chappell believes that the game of cricket has become more difficult for bowlers, which leads to incidents of ball-tampering during a match. To tackle the issue, Chappell suggested a radical move that he believes may end players using illegal means to alter the condition of the ball.

“Let’s look at the way the laws are written. They are pretty much always written in favor of the batsman and if you go right back to underarm bowling to sidearm bowling… to body line and ball-tampering – they all come about because the balance is too much in favor of the batsmen and the bowlers eventually say ‘we have had enough, we are mad as hell and we are going to do something about it’,” he further said.

Meanwhile, addressing the Sandpapergate, Chappell said that he believes that the issue may spring up again after David Warner’s autobiography comes out.
