Some boos could be heard but a loud public address system was played until the Australians had taken their places on the field. <p></p> <p></p>Former Australia captain Allan Border said in SuperSport television s build-up to the day's play that he was angry and embarrassed by Saturday's events. <p></p> <p></p>Australian leg-spinning great Shane Warne also spoke of his ire. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/steven-smith-david-warner-step-down-paine-to-lead-for-rest-of-ongoing-test-695481"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p> I am disappointed in Steve Smith as captain to take that decision to go out and try to do this. <p></p> <p></p>He said the actions were un-Australian and opened the team up to criticism from around the world. <p></p> <p></p>Smith had admitted following Saturday's third day action that he had masterminded an attempt by Cameron Bancroft to alter the condition of the ball in the outfield using a yellow object. <p></p> <p></p> The leadership group knew about it, Smith said. I m not proud of what happened. <p></p> <p></p>Former South African captain Graeme Smith said the current team was unlike previous Australian outfits he had encountered, pointing to a move from before the tour to try to get South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada banned. <p></p> <p></p> That s not Australia for me, said Smith, who criticised what he described as whingeing about the behaviour of South African spectators and Steve Smith's anger that Rabada had been reprieved despite being banned after reaching a demerit point threshold. <p></p> <p></p>Shaun Pollock, another former South African captain, said the Australians would have to face the consequences of their actions. <p></p> <p></p> It was pre-meditated and they ve been caught. They have been shown to cheat, he said. <p></p> <p></p>South Africa started Sunday's fourth day with a 294-run lead and five wickets remaining in their second innings.
