Peever expected to resign as CA chairman


//

Embattled Cricket Australia chairman David Peever is expected to fall on his sword this afternoon, with sources indicating he’ll resign his position, just a week after he was re-elected for a second three-year term.

It follows a disastrous week for CA, with an independent report released on Monday into the toxic culture that prevails at the sport’s governing body, with CA accused of being “arrogant” and “controlling.”

The report said at least part of the blame for the ball tampering scandal that occurred in South Africa in March rested with the culture at Cricket Australia.

Peever’s performance on the ABC’s 7.30 on Monday came in for heavy criticism, with the chairman dodging questions as to why the same CA board who oversaw the deterioration in standards at the governing body should be the ones to fix it.

Questions were raised as to why Peever was re-elected as chairman last week, just days before the release of the report, with the consensus being that the contents of the report should have been considered before deciding on Peever’s future.

The departure of the former Rio Tinto executive will usher in a new era at CA, with Kevin Roberts last week taking over from long-serving CEO James Sutherland.
