CA's culture review sparks players pact


//

Cricket Australia has released its findings from a review into the culture of the game triggered by the ball-tampering incident in South Africa earlier this year, with players from the Australia team to be guided by a new pact.

The pact was read out by Test captain Tim Paine, sitting alongside vice-captain Josh Hazlewood, at a media conference on Monday.

It reads: "We recognise how lucky we are to play this great game. We respect the game and its traditions. 

"We want to make all Australians proud."

The pact is followed by four one-liners: "Compete with us. Smile with us. Fight on with us. Dream with us."

The pact was part of a wide-ranging review is aimed at winning back the trust of the Australian public, which was badly fractured by the ball-tampering affair that led to the suspensions of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.

A damning finding from the review was that Cricket Australia was perceived by "a broad consensus" of players and other stakeholders not to practice what they preach.

"CA does not consistently ‘live’ its values and principles. CA is perceived to say one thing and do another," the review said.

"The most common description of CA is as 'arrogant' and 'controlling'. The core complaint is that the organisation does not respect anyone other than its own.

"Players feel that they are treated as commodities. There is a feeling amongst some State and Territory Associations that they are patronised while sponsors believe their value is defined solely in transactional terms.

"The group most critical of CA is the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA). The ACA’s negative assessment of CA is extreme, matched only by the positive assessment offered by the CA Board."
