Should Australia forfeit the 3rd Test?

What's the point of playing this one out with so many players under a cloud?

I’ve gone no because the spectators, South African players, cricket fans in general and the
Aussie players who were not privy to this nonsense shouldn’t have to suffer.

Plus perhaps having to play on with the crowd and media staring you down is a fitting punishment for smith and Bancroft et al.

M Amir got 5 years ban for bowling intentional no-balls for spot fixing.

Do we see similar 5 year ban for Steve smith & Bancroft ?

oh I forgot, ICC laws don’t apply for white men, only asians get punishment.

I want to hear what punishment they get.

popcorn time.

It looks tough at the moment, but can the Australia players pull up their socks, get their act together and play like a team possessed in the third test ? That will be a stuff of fairy tale.
