On May 1, 2018, Cricket Australia hired an ethics guru who will be responsible to oversee the sport’s culture in the wake of the cheating scandal. The government expressed that it needed to guarantee there was never a rehash of the lead amid the third Test against South Africa in March.
Cricket Australia chairman, David Peever said, “We understand and share the disappointment of fans and the broader Australian community about these events.” Further, Peever added, “The board is determined to do all we can to prevent such events from ever happening again.”
Amid the match in Cape Town, chief Steve Smith, bad habit commander David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft plotted to mess with the ball utilizing sandpaper, procuring themselves extensive bans.
Coach Darren Lehmann surrendered during feedback he permitted a win-no matter what state of mind to thrive that offered to ascend to the swindling embarrassment. Cricket Australia has recognized social issues and said Simon Longstaff would direct a boundless survey into the game.
Simon Longstaff is head of The Ethics Centre, which aims to promote ethical decision-making in business. Longstaff expected to deal with current administrator, media and ethical issues facing the sport before making recommendations.
Simon Longstaff said, “(It’s) essentially good people making bad decisions with sometimes calamitous effects — tragically so as we’ve seen in this case.”
Further, he added, “It’s an inability to recognize the small things that start to change the seeds of some deeper corruption of a core set of values and principles… a type of deviance becomes normalized.”
