Australia's embattled cricketers make way to Johannesburg amid ball-tampering row - in pictures

Futures of captain Smith and coach Lehmann remain uncertain ahead of the final Test match of the series

Australia's embattled Test squad made their way from Cape Town to Johannesburg on Tuesday as the ball-tampering scandal continues to engulf the ongoing series in South Africa.

Captain Steve Smith has already been given a one Test ban by the International Cricket Council and fined 100 per cent of his match fee from the losing third Test at Newlands for his part in the incident, while batsman Cameron Bancroft was fined 75 per cent of his fee but avoided suspension.

However, Cricket Australia are yet to take their own action, with widespread reports claiming Smith will be stripped of the captaincy, while coach Darren Lehmann's position is also in doubt.

With the fourth and final Test of the series set to begin on Friday, the Australia squad have been pictured leaving Cape Town international airport and arriving at Johannesburg international airport.
