'Bancroft didn't realise he was being filmed'

Speaking to CapeTalk's John Maytham about the Australian ball-tampering saga, Alvin Naicker, Supersport head of productions, said it all started down in Durban where the Supersport team noticed something fishy.

One has to look back at the first test in Durban...I was directing the pictures on the test...and we noticed the reverse swing was quite prodigious...it was very unusual.

Naicker explains how one of the super slow cameramen stayed on the ball as it passed to Bancroft and noticed something in his hand. He says Bancroft did not realise he was being filmed because the shot was not being displayed on love television - but it was being recorded.

Listen to Naicker explain the top-notch camera crew and how they caught Bancroft cheating:
