South Africa tampered with ball to win Port Elizabeth Test, says David Warner
Just two days after South Africa thrashed Australia by 231 runs in the second Test at Port Elizabeth to level the three-Test series 1-1, Aussie opener David Warner says the home team may have tampered with the ball to gain some vicious reverse swing.
Australia suffered a batting collapse at St George's Park, losing 10 wickets in all of 90 runs, to lose inside four days.
The visitors had won handsomely in the first Test at Centurion.
Warner and Chris Rogers were the only Australian batsmen to handle the South African pacers well as Dale Steyn took four for 55 and Vernon Philander bagged two for 39 to send the visitors packing in a dramatic post-tea session.
