Ian Chappell attacks leadership of Cricket Australia in wake of cultural review

Ian Chappell attacks leadership of Cricket Australia in wake of cultural review

The 147-page report, based on interviews with players, sponsors and other stakeholders, said CA had consistently failed to live up to its values and principles and a culture of disrespect and bullying ran through the organisation.

There's no doubt that the ball-tampering incident in South Africa was extremely regrettable and caused distress across our country.

The report by The Ethics Centre, an independent non-profit group, said administrators should bear as much blame as former captain Steve Smith, former vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft, who were all suspended for conspiring to cheat by changing the condition of the ball by rubbing it with a piece of yellow sandpaper.

Bancroft received a six-month ban from Cricket Australia, while then-captain and vice-captain Smith and Warner were told they would be in the wilderness for a year.

New Australian captain Tim Paine ans deputy Josh Hazlewood were the face of the pact as it was announced. "We know what Australian cricket expects of us, and we'll be holding each other accountable". "I'd like to see Mark Taylor stand up as chairman of Cricket Australia", he said.

Dyer said this "new evidence" should have an impact on the trio's bans and, given the sanctions were handed down without knowledge of the wider picture, they should be recalibrated. "But there's a right and a wrong way to do it".

But he agreed that the report is bad for Cricket Australia.

"If it does happen, and it does start to get out of control, it won't just be me, it will be a number of guys that know where we sit on that, on how far we go, and where we don't go".

It also wants an Australian Cricket Council configured, with key figures from the sport to meet twice a year to consider "issues of strategic significance" to the sport.

"A culture of disrespect for the opposition, as seen in the common practice of abusive sledging, runs through Australian domestic and global cricket, to a degree not practised by other nations", the report said.

"The most common description of CA is as "arrogant" and "controlling".

Longstaff has recommended a cricketing ethics commission be established, comprising three persons, nominated by CA but rubber-stamped by the states, the Australian Cricketers Association and Cricket Umpires Australia. But none of the players appealed and accepted their mistake. "Players feel that they are treated as commodities", it notes.

David Peever, who is Cricket Australia's chairman as quoted by ESPN Cricinfo said, "The sanctions were carried out and imposed by the board after a very full and thoughtful process".

Deep divisions in Australian cricket, as epitomised by the 2017 MoU dispute and ongoing squabbles between the state associations and CA, are emphasised by the fact that the most positive responses to the review came from board directors and senior management, while the most negative emanated from the ACA, the players and the states and territories.
