Australia cricket trio sent home over ball-tampering scandal

Three players from Australia's cricket team have been sent home from South Africa over a ball-tampering incident in the third Test in Cape Town.

    Three Australian cricketers at the centre of a cheating scandal are being sent home from South Africa.

    They are facing lengthy bans, after one was caught, on camera, tampering with the ball in order to give his team an unfair advantage.
