Social media has erupted with memes over Steven Smith and the ball-tampering scandal. Seizing the opportunity, Air New Zealand launched their new commercial — funny yet hard-hitting — to mock Smith and his partners-in-crime, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. The commercial begins with ‘Hey Steve. We need to talk’, makes fleeting references to the incidents, and finally invites the trio to fly Air New Zealand to Christchurch for the Test between England and New Zealand.

James Sutherland has confirmed that Smith, Warner, and Bancroft are likely to face bans. He will announce the exact duration of the ban today.
