Jamie Carragher Deletes Best Reaction To The Australia Ball Tampering Controversy

Jamie Carragher Deletes Best Reaction To The Australia Ball Tampering Controversy

Australian cricket has been involved in the biggest sporting media storm since Jamie Carragher spat at a fan a few weeks ago. Now the former Liverpool defender has put the two together in a brilliant way, but then deleted the post.

You've not been able to move on social media without seeing Steve Smith, David Warner or Cameron Bancroft ever since the latter took a small piece of sandpaper to a cricket ball. Never has the phrase ball tampering been typed more, and it'll never not give me a chuckle.

The reaction to the news has been massive. Warner especially has been treated like a near criminal and whilst what the boys did was pretty diabolical in a sporting sense it wasn't the worst thing ever.

Smith and Warner have been banned for a year by Cricket Australia whilst Bancroft has got nine months. It all seems like a bit of an overreaction, something Jamie Carragher knows all about.

The Sky pundit has been suspended till the end of the year for his own indiscretion, when he spat at a fan on the motorway who'd been goading him. Carragher's been pretty quiet recently but posted the perfect response to the ball tampering on Twitter, with a picture of him, Smith and former Aussie coach Darren Lehmann, only to delete it moments later:

Of course some will complain that the former England defender should be showing more humility than making a joke but he made a mistake, apologised several times over and is being punished, it's funny!

All of the cricketers involved have been too harshly punished whilst the incident has also led Lehmann to quit his post as coach despite not being implicated by the Australian cricket board for the incident.

Earlier today Smith made a statement, apologising for his actions, in which he showed clear contrition and broke down in tears, saying: "I am deeply sorry, I love the game of cricket, I love kids wanting to play the great game of cricket that I love."

Carragher definitely gets props for his response, even if he deleted it after.
