Australian cricket cheating plot sparks ethics review

Tim Paine

Australian trio, Tim Paine, Pat Cummins and George Bailey have formed part of a panel which will draw up a charter regarding the behaviour of the men's cricket team, according to BBC Sport.

This overarching independent review will investigate whether any wider cultural, organisational and/or governance issues within CA, and more broadly within Australian cricket, should be addressed to ensure these events never occur again, either on tour or whilst playing in Australia.

Australian cricket is still recovering from the controversial 3-1 series defeat in South Africa, a tour that led to CA imposing 12-month bans on Steve Smith and David Warner, and a nine-month sanction on Cameron Bancroft, for all domestic and global cricket for their roles in the scandal.

Smith, Warner and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft will be missing from the domestic summer after they were sanctioned for their roles in a ball-tampering plot during the third cricket Test against South Africa at Cape Town in March.

Cricket Australia on Tuesday appointed an ethics guru to review the sport's culture in the wake of the cheating scandal that has rocked "the gentleman's game".

Sydney-based organisation, The Ethics Centre, led by executive director Dr Simon Longstaff, will oversee the independent organisational review, while the player assessment will be headed up by former Test opener Rick McCosker.

"It's not just the Australian cricket team that has misbehaved in recent times ... a number of players from different countries have been involved in incidents over the course of the last couple of months".

"The reviews will commence immediately, and we fully anticipate being able to begin implementing findings before the start of the 2018-19 cricket season". Meanwhile, James Sutherland, the Chairman of Cricket Australia said that they can stage a comeback and believes that they deserve an opportunity to make amends.

"Changes to player behaviour, expectations or sanctions must be aligned with those which would be handed down to players on both sides of global cricket matches".

Sutherland is confident Australian cricket can recover.

Former players and pundits, however, have criticised the team for relentless sledging of opponents and other boorish conduct on field.

Sutherland also said that Warner, Smith and Bancroft could "absolutely" win their places back on the Australian team once they had done their time.

"I haven't thought about [resigning as CEO] and I really see the responsibility I have to push through this and deal with the situation", he told SEN on Tuesday. All of the reports were that he led the team with aplomb.

"I think everyone deserves their chance and their own personal redemption story is very much in their own hands now", he added.
