Australians got away lightly after being caught cheating
The Australian cricket team's leaders have been awarded very light penalties for cheating in altering the condition of the ball with a rough tape.
They haven't only breached the letter of the law, but also violated the boundaries of the spirit of the game.
Cricket is considered a game of fair play and sportsmanship.
It's not just that the Australians have been caught blatantly cheating, it's their arrogance and conceitedness that irks cricket teams and cricket fans.
