ADELAIDE, Australia -- South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has been found guilty and fined for ball tampering by the International Cricket Council but will be allowed to play against Australia this week.Du Plessis escaped a suspension which would have prevented him from playing in the third test against Australia starting Thursday in Adelaide.The ball tampering charge was brought by ICC chief executive Dave Richardson after television replays from the second test in Hobart showed du Plessis applying saliva to the ball while sucking a mint on the fourth day of the match. This would have given the ball an unnatural shine and weight, and allowed it to swing through the air significantly more than under regular conditions.He pleaded not guilty but was found to have altered the condition of the ball and was fined 100 percent of his second test match fee or about $2,500. Du Plessis has indicated he will appeal at the risk of incurring a harsher penalty.South Africa already has a winning 2-0 lead in the three-match series.Richardson told Australias Nine television network Wednesday that he charged du Plessis because the ICC wanted to draw a line in the sand on ball tampering.Probably in this case in particular, we drew the line, Richardson said. We said `we need to charge because in our eyes anyway it was pretty obvious that he was using the residue from the sweet directly on the ball.I think the bottom line is if you want to change the condition of the ball by polishing it, in other words improving it, keeping it, retaining its condition, do so, but dont use any artificial substance.ICC match referee Andy Pycroft heard submissions earlier on when the hearing should take place and decided it should be held before the third test in the interests of expediency and in order to protect the integrity of the Adelaide test.The hearing was initially expected to take place after the conclusion of the series because South Africa has indicated it has engaged lawyers on du Plessiss behalf, making the process more complex than usual.Pycroft heard evidence from the umpires, the teams and from John Stephenson, representing the Marylebone Cricket Club -- the guardians of the laws of the game.The decision was based on the evidence given from the umpires, who confirmed that had they seen the incident they would have taken action immediately, and from Stephenson, who confirmed the MCC view that the television footage showed an artificial substance being transferred to the ball.South Africas anger at the treatment of du Plessis flared on Monday when a team security official manhandled a television reporter who tried to question the captain when the team arrived at Adelaide Airport.Security manager Zunaid Wadee pushed away the reporter who had tried to force his way into the group of players to speak to du Plessis. Reporters had been advised that no interviews would be granted on arrival in Adelaide.In a statement issued later Monday, team manager Mohammed Moosajee defended Wadees actions and criticized the conduct of the reporter.Moosajee said the reporter had disrespected the South Africa team by continuing to harass Faf for comment.The `reporter was also in the unusual position of being in the middle of the players walkway to the bus, he said. He was advised to move three times, and did not adhere to this request. The `reporter, who also had no official accreditation, then proceeded to lunge towards Faf with an unknown object causing a direct breach of security protocol. The reporter also shoved the team manager in the back.Throughout the tour we have respected all our media obligations and treated media with utmost respect. At the same time, we would like to see this respect reciprocated and will not accept such behavior as displayed by the Channel 9 News reporter.Du Plessis was found guilty of ball tampering in 2013, when he breached the ICCs code of conduct by rubbing the ball on the zipper of a trouser pocket to make gouge marks during a test against Pakistan. But under altered rules adopted by the ICC on Sept. 22, the episode against Australia was treated as a first offense.South Africa coach Russell Domingo said the preparation for the Adelaide test was not ideal, but the squad was united.Its been an interesting few days, Domingo said. We have had a wonderful tour here and we have played great cricket. We have had long discussions and our focus now is purely on cricket. Whatever happens with the hearing ... our focus is entirely on the test match that is coming ahead. Steelers Hoodies Jerseys Outlet . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft.

NAIROBI, Kenya -- A vice president of the Kenyan Olympic committee was arrested on suspicion of theft Monday, dragged out from under his bed by police as he hid in an apartment filled with boxes of brand new Nike running shoes and other apparel that was meant to be given to athletes for the Rio de Janeiro Games three months ago.The arrest came as it was alleged in a soon-to-be-published report by investigators that more than $800,000 set aside to pay for Kenyan athletes expenses at the Olympics -- and large amounts of equipment provided by team sponsor Nike -- was stolen by high-ranking sports officials.National Olympic Committee of Kenya vice president Ben Ekumbo, who is also head of the countrys swimming federation, was arrested at his home in Nairobi by officers of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation police unit. Ekumbo was found under his bed when officers forced their way in after he refused to let them in, Kenyan media reported.In Ekumbos apartment police found Kenyan Olympic team uniforms, tracksuits, kit bags in their original plastic packaging, and boxes of new and unused Nike running shoes specially designed in the colors of the Kenyan flag.He is the fifth senior Olympic committee official to be arrested in the investigation into missing money and equipment that was ordered by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta following the Olympics in August.Four officials were arrested in September: Kenyas team leader at the Rio Olympics, Stephen Arap Soi, was charged with stealing over $250,000 that was meant to be used for athletes travel, accommodation and other expenses in Rio. Another vice president of the Olympic committee, Pius Ochieng, and secretary general Francis Kinyili Paul were charged with stealing Nike kit. They all denied the charges and are out oon bail.ddddddddddddThe other official, committee treasurer Fridah Shiroya, had charges against her dropped and she is expected to be a state witness and testify against the others.Mondays arrest of Ekumbo, who was the deputy team leader under Arap Soi at the Olympics, follows revelations in their report that investigators believe as much as $860,000 meant for Kenyas Olympic team may have been misappropriated by officials at the Olympic committee and the sports ministry.The report also said that the Kenyan Olympic committee should account for the $1.2 million it received from Nike every year since 2013 because of suspicions that some or all of that money has also been misused.The investigators report has not been officially released but parts of it have been seen by The Associated Press.Kenyan sport, and specifically athletics, is in turmoil with the senior leadership of the track and field federation and now the Olympic committee facing allegations of major corruption.In a separate investigation by the IAAF, Athletics Kenyas vice president, chief executive, secretary general and former treasurer all face allegations of seeking bribes to suppress doping cases, while three of them are accused of embezzling $700,000 of their sponsorship money from Nike.Athletics Kenya President Isaiah Kiplagat was also suspended pending an investigation into the missing Nike money but he died in August.Kenyas Olympic committee was disbanded by the government in the wake of the Rio scandal. The International Olympic Committee, which does not allow governments to interfere in national Olympic bodies, demanded Kenya re-establish it or face being suspended.
