“This accusation right there I’m interested in Warnie; it sounds a little premeditated. It was this build-up or fermentation and it got to the breaking point. This accusation about filming teams shining the ball, I suppose it came back to that very ground when the accusation was made,” Adam Gilchrist said. Australians caught on camera.
