Ball-Tampering Scam: David Warner accepts Cricket Australia ban

Australian ball-tampering: The WhatsApp message that sums up Cam Bancroft

David Warner has accepted the 12-month ban dished out by Cricket Australia and stressed he is "truly sorry" for his role in the ball-tampering scandal. "I also hope they can eventually win back the trust of cricket fans and the Australian public".

Warner's tweet came a day after former captain Steve Smith said that he desperately wants to play for Australia again but will not be challenging a 12-month ban for a ball-tampering scandal that rocked cricket.

His decision, just hours before a deadline, followed a contrite Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft also accepting their sanctions on Wednesday. Warner took to social media to inform the world that he will not be contesting the ban.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said late Thursday the bans were "significant penalties" that were "not imposed lightly".

Redskins acquire quarterback Kevin Hogan in trade with Browns
Since the Browns also acquired Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton , there was little room for Hogan, who recently requested a trade . Cleveland sent starter DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers and backup Cody Kessler to the Jacksonville Jaguars .

"James Sutherland's position is not under review, he continues to have the full support of the board". What has changed is the sportsmanship.

The fallout from the scandal comes as Cricket Australia pushes for an $850 million-plus broadcasting rights deal to cover the next five years.

Peever, a former Rio Tinto executive, who joined the CA Board in 2012 and succeeded Wally Edwards as chairman in 2015, has always been evasive of speaking publicly.

Former test batsman Rick McCosker will lead a panel of two current and two former players in drawing up the charter, which is expected to address issues such as sledging of opponents as well as outright cheating.

Philadelphia was up 65-49 at halftime, and the margin didn't reach single digits again until the waning moments of the fourth. The Nets were unable to even cut the lead to less than 15, with the game decided midway through the third.

"I think we're all going to come under the microscope in terms of what is occurring back in the organisation that might have contributed to this", Peever told reporters in Brisbane on Friday. "But I think a lot of times, cultural things can be blown out of proportion, when the reality inside the dressing room is completely different than what it is spoken about all the time". I know people in these circumstances call for everyone to be sacked.

The series had been level at 1-1 going to Newlands‚ where South Africa beat their clearly rattled opponents by 322 runs.

"If we wind the clock a couple of months back, when Australia won the Ashes like they did, there was no talk about cultural problems or issues whatsoever", Ponting answered to a query from PTI. "Frankly, the tactics are appalling on a number of levels".

The Australian opener, who was serving as the Vice Captain during the third Test between Australia and South Africa recently when the ball-tampering episode emerged, has been precluded from playing for NSW during that period.
