Tim Paine was made captain for the rest of the third Test - which has reached the fourth day - at Newlands after regular captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were stood down following the ball tampering revelations.
A muted chorus of boos greeted Australia when stand-in captain Tim Paine led the team out at the start of play against South Africa on Sunday in the wake of a ball-tampering scandal.
Paine was made captain for the rest of the third Test - which has reached the fourth day - at Newlands after regular captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were stood down following Saturday's revelations.
Although all tickets for the day had been sold, the ground was only about a third full at the start of play. Some boos could be heard but a loud public address system was played until the Australians had taken their places on the field.
Former Australia captain Allan Border said in SuperSport television's build-up to the day's play that he was "angry and embarrassed" by Saturday's events.
Australian leg-spinning great Shane Warne also spoke of his ire.
"I am disappointed in Steve Smith as captain to take that decision to go out and try to do this."
He said the actions were "un-Australian" and opened the team up to criticism from around the world.
Smith had admitted following Saturday's third day action that he had masterminded an attempt by Cameron Bancroft to alter the condition of the ball in the outfield using a yellow object.
"The leadership group knew about it," Smith said. "I'm not proud of what happened."
Banned and match fee docked
In a statement released on Sunday, the International Cricket Council (ICC), announced that they had given Smith a one match ban and docked his entire match fee for the current Test.
Bancroft was hit by three demerit points, fined 75 percent of his match fee and warned for his part in attempting to "change the condition of the ball in order to gain an unfair advantage" on Saturday,
"The decision made by the leadership group of the Australian team to act in this way is clearly contrary to the spirit of the game, risks causing significant damage to the integrity of the match, the players and the sport itself and is therefore 'serious' in nature," said ICC chief executive David Richardson.
"As captain, Steve Smith must take full responsibility for the actions of his players and it is appropriate that he be suspended."
The ICC statement said Smith had "accepted the charge" and a "sanction of two suspension points which equates to a ban for the next Test match and which will see four demerit points added to his record".
Former South African captain Graeme Smith said the current team was unlike previous Australian outfits he had encountered, pointing to a move from before the tour to try to get South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada banned.
"That's not Australia for me," said Smith, who criticised what he described as "whingeing" about the behaviour of South African spectators and Steve Smith's anger that Rabada had been reprieved despite being banned after reaching a demerit point threshold.
Shaun Pollock, another former South African captain, said the Australians would have to face the consequences of their actions.
"It was pre-meditated and they've been caught. They have been shown to cheat," he said.
South Africa started Sunday's fourth day with a 294-run lead and five wickets remaining in their second innings.
