New Delhi: South African captain for Australia series, Faf du Plesis was found guilty of breaching ICC Cod of Conduct Level 2 after he was accused of ball tampering during the 2nd Test against Australia at Hobart.
A television footage showed him applying an artificial substance to the ball during the fourth day’s play.
Du Plesis might have faced a one-match ban but escaped with just a fine after the hearing concluded on Monday.
Now, a similar incident involving Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli has come across.
A video published by South African newspaper group IOL shows Kohli shining the ball during India's first Test against England at Rajkot in a similar manner.
In the footage, Kohli is seen rubbing his right-hand fingers with some sort of artificial substance in his mouth. Subsequently, he proceeds to shine the ball applying saliva.
