Despite all the discussions and the punishment verdict, most of the people still think that Bancroft is the one who planned and did all this by the help of both his Captain and Vice-Captain but it was David Warner who actually proposed this idea to Smith and told his fellow opener to do so and he even showed Bancroft how to actually tamper the ball. Thus, after the investigation it came into light that Warner was the Main Culprit behind the In-Famous Ball Tampering and therfore have been found guilty on 5 things, first he was the Instigator behind the incident, second he mislead match officials about the incident, third he refused to be part of the incident, fourth being a senior pro and despite his bad suggestion he didn’t stop the incident to occur, fifth and the last he didn’t report the incident after the day’s play. So, these things prove that Warner was the bad influencer to Bancroft which lead to this mishap and huge shame to Cricket Australia and the whole Cricketing World, but still comitting a thing like this he has banned for a single year and robbed of his Captaincy future, which is actually not enough punishment for such a instigating crime.
