The board is determined to do all we can to prevent such events from ever happening again. <p></p> <p></p>During the match in Cape Town, captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft plotted to tamper with the b<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/australia-ball-tampering" target="_blank">all using sandpaper</a>, earning themselves lengthy bans. <p></p> <p></p>Coach Darren Lehmann also resigned amid criticism he allowed a win-at-all-costs attitude to flourish that gave rise to the cheating scandal. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/australia-ball-tampering-scandal-all-we-know-697222"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>CA has acknowledged cultural issues within the team and on Tuesday said Simon Longstaff would conduct a wide-ranging review into the sport. <p></p> <p></p>Longstaff is head of Sydney-based non-profit organisation The Ethics Centre, which aims to promote ethical decision-making in business, government and everyday life. <p></p> <p></p>He is expected to quiz current and former players, administrators, media and sponsors about ethical issues facing the sport before making recommendations. <p></p> <p></p>Longstaff did not comment in the CA statement but said last month that those involved in the scandal had lost their internal compass . <p></p> <p></p> (It s) essentially good people making bad decisions with sometimes calamitous effects tragically so as we've seen in this case," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. <p></p> <p></p> It's an inability to recognise 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 normalised. <p></p> <p></p>Longstaff's review will run in tandem with a separate probe announced last month into player behaviour headed by former Test batsman Rick McCosker. <p></p> <p></p>McCosker will work with former players to formulate a charter on player behaviour balancing the demands of elite cricket with public expectations about the way such role models should act. <p></p> <p></p>Peever said CA wanted to implement recommendations from both the Longstaff and McCosker reviews in time for the 2018-19 season.
