The ICC announced on Wednesday that it would review footage of the match that appeared to show du Plessis applying saliva to the ball with a lolly in his mouth.

Hobart: South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has been charged with ball tampering during the second test against Australia in Hobart, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Friday.

The ICC announced on Wednesday that it would review footage of the match that appeared to show du Plessis applying saliva to the ball with a lolly in his mouth.

The charge relates to changing the condition of the ball in breach of Law 42.3," the ICC said in a statement."Du Plessis has pleaded not guilty to the charge ... Details of the hearing will be announced in due course," the governing body added.
The 32-year-old stand-in captain for the injured AB de Villiers has been in hot water earlier also.

In 2013, Du Plessis was fined 50 percent of his match fee for ball tampering in the second test against Pakistan after being caught on camera rubbing the ball against a zip on his pocket on the third day of the match in Dubai, leading umpires Ian Gould and Rod Tucker to penalise South Africa and change the ball. He did not contest the charge.
