ICC says no evidence of ball tampering

Match officials have found no evidence of ball tampering in the Hobart Test between Australia and Sri Lanka and no charges will be laid, the ICC said on Tuesday. Australia paceman Peter Siddle found himself at the centre of row after a picture of him apparently picking at the seam of the ball circulated on social media. "The umpires frequently inspect the ball during play, and did so again after they had reviewed the video footage in question on Sunday," ICC match referee Chris Broad said. "They found no evidence to suggest that the condition of the ball had been changed." Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardene said the team had not made an official complaint and just wanted Broad to look at TV pictures.
