England had a ball tampering expert using Murray mints in the 2005 Ashes series. The England bowlers got a lot of swing which contributed to the Ashes win.
The player admitted it in his autobiography when he retired.
Bottle tops have been used in test matches. Current England bowlers have been accused of using spikes and seam picking by officials but not charged.
Ball tampering has always gone on, just harder to get away with now when tv cameras are at big games. Itís always gone on in League cricket as well.
