Former Test cricketer to lead second review, into player behaviour


"I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me", wrote Warner. "We know the players will return to playing the game they love, and in doing so, we hope they regain the trust of fans".

After Warner broke down into tears during an emotional media conference last Saturday, the former vice-captain noted that he was mulling his decision whether to appeal Cricket Australia's sanctions.

Ponting said that he understood the disappointment of the general Australian public as they have always looked up to their cricket team in a different manner.

The former Australia skipper along with former vice-captain David Warner is suspended from playing first-class or global cricket for his country for 12 months following the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town last month that shook the sport.

Australia's disastrous tour of South Africa concluded with a crushing 492-run defeat in the final test.

"All of that said, though, I have been interested in the fact that I didn't realise so many former cricketers were such angels reading the press", Peever said, in an off-hand remark that on the audio was received with strangled laughter by others on the call.

Australia top cricket chiefs Friday ruled out stepping down after a ball-tampering scandal that shocked the nation, saying it was "not the time for a witch hunt" as a review into player conduct was announced. "The cultural thing is a bit of an interesting thing. Reaction of Australian public felt that Australian players had not played the game in a fair way", he said.

"We are all going to come under the microscope in terms of what is occurring back in the organisation which might have contributed to this, but I can tell you circumstances like this are not the time for witch hunts".

"There's a very big picture there for the world game's sake, and Cricket Australia, I think, have reacted to what the world game pretty much demanded", he said.

The next fixtures for the Australian national men's team come in June with a one-day worldwide series against England. As hard as that's going to be for them, it's also a good thing for cricket in Australia as well. The world game and the Australian people demanded that these players were dealt with a certain way.

Smith and Bancroft decided not to appeal against their suspensions and Warner followed suit on Thursday, tweeting that he accepts CA's punishment.

Bancroft, who was banned for nine months would no longer be joining county side Somerset as their overseas player in the summer as confirmed by the county side last week.
