Cricket Australia branded 'arrogant' in post-cheating scandal review

Taylor defended the decision to appoint David Peever prior to the review being completed

Bizarrely it was only last week that Peever was re-elected as chairman, odd timing given the impending release of two ethics reviews that were clearly going to focus on the role of his organisation.

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". It was just something that people couldn't understand you know and it was a shock to all of Australia and we reacted accordingly. There were multiple instances of disrespect than ran through CA.

The review said: "A culture of disrespect for the opposition, as seen in the common practice of abusive sledging, runs through Australian domestic and worldwide cricket, to a degree not practiced by other nations". "He's on the board, he's been there for quite a long time and there is a bit of an outcry that the whole of the board must go, I don't agree with that, there are some very good people on that board who work hard, who have good judgment".

Since the scandal broke CA has appointed new leaders to all three Australian men's cricket teams, as well as a new chief executive in Kevin Roberts to replace James Sutherland.

Katich told radio station SEN: "I think the players should see out their bans".

His concern is that the corporate influence has become too strong.

Paine said it is clear to players what the country expects of them as representatives of the country. Speed described these conclusions as "naive". "Firstly, that the candidates for captaincy should have extra lessons in moral courage", Speed said. "The Australian public will forgive and move on and they have an opportunity to really be role models to kids going forward".

"Australian cricket has lost its balance and has stumbled badly", the review said in its executive summary. The group most critical of CA is the Australian Cricketers Association.

"The events in South Africa were in part a by-product of a culture and system which, amongst other things, placed too much pressure on players to win", said ACA President Greg Dyer, a former Test wicketkeeper.

"Players contributed a lot to what our submission to the review was, whether it was through a survey or interviews".

"We didn't put sufficient emphasis on the spirit of the game in our pursuit of wanting to be the very best we could on the field", he said.

After more than a year of bitter feuding, CA and the ACA have been encouraged to have a "constructive working relationship", and told to begin this process within 30 days. That would be a remarkable occurrence, but there is discontent in some quarters - particularly about the fact they were not shown a copy of the Ethics Centre report before Peever's re-election.

"We note that board of CA has both the power and, in our view, the moral obligation to do so".

"Nobody within the ACA, nobody within our membership has been surprised by any of the findings of the Dr Longstaff review".
