All the teams have been doing d same but unfortunately ICC has ever shown its bias catching approach against Pakistan

This is something I would expect from Pakistan, not a good team like South Africa

Nothing but naivity for this guy to assume that some infraction has happened when guilt has been admitted, penalty awarded and accepted. Sorry buddy you have to choose words which reflect reality. Every team falls from grace and today was SA's turn. Take that with a pich of salt. Now that they (SA) are caught who is to say how long has this been going on i.e not only just this match but in previous victories too. Pak bowlers whose bread and butter is reverse swing couldn't make the ball to talk and Steyn started moving it in the same condition right from the start. Fishy!!!

SA is a great team. and i don't think so they need this kind of nonsense.. but we can see clear in video

SA is my favorite team after Pakistan and West Indies.. it really hurts to watch such nonsense, when it wasn't required for any reason
