Cricket Australia’s culture review to be released next week

The long-awaited probe in Australia’s cricketing culture and the events leading up to the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town will be publically released next Monday.

The review was announced after Test captain Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and opener Cameron Bancroft were all suspended, and national men’s team coach Darren Lehmann resigned.

It was overseen by ex-Test opener Rick McCosker in partnership with Director of Australia’s Centre of Ethical Leadership, Peter Collins.


The panel also included national captains Tim Paine and Rachel Haynes, Australia representatives Shane Watson and George Bailey and new men’s team coach, Justin Langer.

Another probe was created to try and figure out if there was a culture problem in Australian and what it was.

Alongside this, there was another probe into the events leading up to the ball-tampering scandal.

Both reviews have been presented to Cricket Australia ahead of their general meeting.
