And speaking of cheating ...

The Australian Cricket Team is quite fortunate that FIDE isn't running world cricket (in so so many ways I must add). I'm not sure what the exact equivalent for 'ball tampering' in chess is (probably clock tampering), but if that sort of cheating went on at say a Chess Olympiad, I would expect both player and captain (or coach) to no longer be playing for the rest of the event. Of course cricket doesn't have a 'send off' rule (so the players involved can continue in this Test), but players can be suspended from future matches, which is what I expect will happen here.
