Steve Smith has stepped down as captain of IPL side Rajasthan Royals following the ball-tampering incident on Australia’s tour of South Africa.

Smith has admitted Australia’s ‘senior leadership team’ colluded to try and tamper with the ball on day three of the third-Test defeat.

He was handed a one-match Test ban by the ICC following the incident in Cape Town and will now relinquish his captaincy role with the Royals.

India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane will replace the 28-year-old as skipper for the new IPL season, which starts in April, live on Sky.

Zubin Bharucha, Rajasthan Royals head of cricket, said: “The incident in Cape Town has certainly disturbed the cricket world. We have been in constant touch with the BCCI [Indian cricket board] and taken their counsel. Furthermore, we have been in regular contact with Steve.
