Australia cricket captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft have all been sent home from the tour of South Africa for their role in the ball-tampering scandal and face "significant sanctions" in the next 24 hours, Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland announced on Tuesday in a press conference in Johannesburg.
