Queensland Batsman Matthew Renshaw To Fly to South Africa

Renshaw has been added to the squad for the final Test

Renshaw was dropped ahead of the Ashes previous year and was replaced by Cameron Bancroft, who has been charged for ball tampering along with Steven Smith. He was also successful in leading Queensland to the Sheffield Shield final this year. Lehmann's possible role in the plot is under scrutiny as the head of the team, with Australian media asking hard questions over if he knew. Tim Paine will replace Smith as the captain of the Australian cricket team for the fourth Test against South Africa in Johannesburg.

Cameron Bancroft was caught rubbing sticky yellow tape on the ball, with Smith admitting afterwards it was a premeditated move by "the leadership group".

The investigation pertaining to the ball tampering scandal kicked off on Monday as some of the players and support staff were interviewed by Cricket Australia officials.

The Aussie team is due to play the final Test against South Africa in Johannesburg that starts on Friday.

"I understand the appetite for urgency given the reputation of Australia as a sporting nation has been damaged in the eyes of many". "People dream about winning a Shield their whole cricket careers and managing to do it at 21 and obviously what's coming (in South Africa), I can look forward to that, but I've got to enjoy a thing that not many people manage to do". The Queensland batsman played ten Test matches for Australia country and amassed 623 runs with a best of 184 runs.

Instead the Bulls, led by Joe Burns and Renshaw, took advantage of the batsman-friendly surface in a 106-run stand to secure the win.

The initial part of the Cricket Australia investigation has been conducted at the team's luxury Cape Town waterfront hotel, where they were staying before leaving for Johannesburg.

Cricket Australia is not expected to be so lenient amid calls for serious bans for all players found to be involved.

Pye reported from Brisbane, Australia.
