The 2015 World Cup-winning Australia skipper – Michael Clarke is not satisfied, like other former internationals and officials, with the Cricket Australia’s (CA) investigation to the ball-tampering scandal, saying the Australian cricket is in "deep shit" until the full story comes out in front of the public.

Clarke’s comment came after CA Chief Executive –James Sutherland, according to the investigation, announced that only three players - Captain Steve Smith, Vice-captain David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft knew of the plan to tamper the ball in the Cape Town Test.

Sutherland also made it clear that, except these three, there were no other players and even Coach Darren Lehmann in the Australian camp, who were involved in the plan, and it was a very surprising verdict for many from fans to former high-profile players and cricket pundits to believe in the investigation.

He also confirmed that the trio was to be sent home for their involvement in the ball-tampering, but Lehmann will continue with his role for the final Test on 30 March against South Africa.

On Tuesday, Clarke went on Twitter to join the chorus of skepticism, saying the entire story of the ball-tampering in Cape Town should unfold in front of the Australian public.

Meanwhile, Tim Paine has been officially appointed as Test captain by CA, while Matt Renshaw, Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns recalled for the final encounter in Johnsonburg.
