Tim Paine and Pat Cummins part of Cricket Australia player review

Tim Paine and Pat Cummins part of Cricket Australia player review

Warner was banned for a year alongside Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith for his involvement in the ball tampering saga that overshadowed the recent tour to South Africa.

The second panel will be helped along by Tim Paine, the new Test captain, Pat Cummins, Rachael Haynes, Shane Watson, the Australian Cricketers' Association nominee, George Bailey and the new Australian men's head coach, who is as yet to be appointed.

Along with Warner, captain Steve Smith and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft too were banned for a year and 9 months respectively, with the skipper to be considered unfit for leadership role over the next two years.

Former captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were banned from global and domestic cricket in Australia for a 12-month period following the incident.

Lehmann, who was appointed in 2013, was cleared of wrongdoing by CA but resigned as coach in March more than 12 months before his contract was up.

CA has acknowledged cultural issues within the team and on Tuesday said Simon Longstaff would conduct a wide-ranging review into the sport.

CA chairman David Peever said: 'We understand and share the disappointment of fans and the broader Australian community about these events. The Board is determined to do all we can to prevent such events from ever happening again.

The Ethics Centre's four-phase review will investigate what part any cultural, organisational or governance issues at Jolimont played in the disastrous tour of South Africa.

The independent review will seek input via surveys and interviews with relevant stakeholders and will also integrate the directions and outcomes of the Rick McCosker Player Review.

The inquiries will begin immediately and CA maintains that the information gathering will remain confidential, whereas the findings will be made available after the completion.

"We are concerned that our players may be subject to conditions which could be different from those that apply to players from other countries against which they play", ACA president Greg Dyer said in a statement.

DAVID Warner will be 32 by the time his ban from Australian cricket comes to an end but Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland insists the door is not closed on a return to national duty for the axed vice-captain.

CA says it wants a new code of conduct that "balances the performance demands of elite cricket with expectations of all Australians in regard to on and off-field role modelling".

"I haven't thought about (resigning as CEO) and I really see the responsibility I have to push through this and deal with the situation", he told local radio station SEN on Tuesday.

"I think right now we're in a place where these sorts of opportunities can lead to the game being better".
