David, 32 was banned for one year by Cricket Australia after he helped mastermind a plot to cheat in the Third Test against South Africa in March.

Former captain Steve Smith and player Cameron Bancroft were also punished for their involvement, receiving 12-month and nine-month bans respectively.   

During his post-scandal press conference, David became particularly emotional while apologising to his wife Candice and their two children for the effect his actions had on them.

She said the couple lost the baby a week after his tearful press conference in Sydney in late March after he was sent home from Australia’s tour of South Africa and banned for a year. 

‘The miscarriage was a heartbreaking end to a horror tour… The ordeal from the public humiliations to the ball-tampering had taken its toll and, from that moment, we decided nothing will impact our lives like that again,’ she said at the time.    

Amid the cricket ban and tragic miscarriage, David also stormed off the field during a Sydney grade match in October after the brother of Phillip Hughes allegedly targeted him with ‘abusive’ sledging.

A witness claimed Jason Hughes had brought up the death of his brother Phillip Hughes – who died in 2014 after being struck in the head with a ball – in a sledge. 

But according to Fairfax Media, Jason made no mention of his late brother and instead allegedly referenced the ball tampering scandal. 

David’s wife Candice stood by her husband’s decision to take time off the field.   

'It actually shows me how strong their relationship is, because what she does for David, what she does for her family, she puts them ahead of herself, through and through!' The PR guru sung praise about Candice's bond with her husband and children
