Cricket players and officials can not be above the game

THE review into the ball tampering scandal has reportedly found that Cricket Australia's own failures contributed to the end result, which saw three players banned.

His decision followed then captain Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft receiving lengthy bans for the plot to alter the ball using sandpaper.

"What the Longstaff review reveals is that Cricket Australia itself must also take a share of responsibility for what happened in South Africa".

"Given there is now independent verification that CA's system and culture were contributory factors, the ACA calls for the lifting of the board-imposed penalties on Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft", Dyer told a news conference in Melbourne.

Test great Justin Langer reckons ball tampering is an worldwide problem, but he's promised it won't happen in Australian cricket under his watch.

The report, commissioned by CA after the ball-tampering affair, noted "responsibility for that larger picture lies with CA and not just the players held directly responsible for the appalling incident at Newlands".

"The game of cricket has got to go forward".

Australia's former bowling coach Craig McDermott joined ex-coach Darren Lehmann in arguing that Cricket Australia must soften the bans.

Smith, Warner and Bancroft have missed three Tests but the ACA's calls raise the possibility of them returning for the four-Test series against India, which begins in Adelaide on 6 December.


"I think the sanctions were probably too harsh and they should be allowed to play domestic cricket at least", he said.

One Australian player declared "CA do not enjoy being challenged by commercial sponsors, players and other stakeholders".

CA chairman David Peever has maintained the suspensions will be upheld while CA chief executive Kevin Roberts has suggested the players' case has been weakened because they opted to not appeal against their suspensions in March. In short, in common parlance, Australian cricketers get it.

The report has made 42 recommendations, including setting up a new Ethics Committee and selecting players based on character as well as ability.

Katich wants trio to complete their bans.

.

Of the stakeholders who responded, the majority said the sanctions were a positive demonstration of Cricket Australia's "Be Real" ethos and also in the important "Spirit of Cricket" category.

Cricket Australia (CA) has been accused of creating a "win-at-all-costs" environment which led to a recent cheating scandal and the reputation of one of the country's most loved sports being damaged. "They gave us a lot of feedback around that, so it's important to note that came through in the overall Longstaff report", Nicholson said.

The relationships between CA and the ACA became strained during last year's volatile pay dispute.
