Bogut calls for Cricket Australia heads to roll


//

Australian basketball star Andrew Bogut has taken aim at Cricket Australia's administrators after the release of a cultural review undertaken by The Ethics Centre.

After the review - which was released on Monday - concluded that there were issues within the organisation of Cricket Australia that played a part in certain players' on-field behaviour, the former NBA star called for the administrators to be penalised just as Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft and David Warner have been.

"I think just light the whole thing on fire and start again," Bogut told reporters at a Sydney Kings practice.

"If they're admitting fault as a board - 'maybe we messed (up)' - all of you should go then.

"The players copped it. I don't know why the suits and administrators haven't."

Bogut also took issue with the internal investigation conducted by Cricket Australia which led to the suspension of the aforementioned trio over the ball tampering saga, calling the use of integrity units in sporting organisations a "farce".

"I don't want to throw stones at other sports, but any time a sport has an integrity unit, I think it's a farce," he said.

"How can your own league have an integrity unit? Same as the AFL. You have an integrity unit that's investigating your own. There might be a little bit of an imbalance there, I think.

"If the players are copping what they're copping, so should the administrators and everybody else involved, because there's obviously an underlying issue, culturally, there."
