BBC SPORT | Hair 'guessed' at ball-tampering

BBC SPORT | Hair 'guessed' at ball-tampering: "Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Hughes said when he examined the ball it was in 'pretty good condition'.

He added: 'There were a number of small abrasions on the rough side, fairly typical of normal wear and tear on a deteriorating Test pitch.

'The only thing that looked slightly suspicious was a number of slightly curved striations concentrated on one area.

'I concluded that those could have been man-made scratches but there was no way I could be sure. There was no hard evidence of ball-tampering.'"

Sounds like Hair's been hung out to dry on that one.
