Australian Cricketers' Association wants Steve Smith, David Warner bans to be lifted

"There must be a reconsideration of the harshness of the penalties", Dyer said in a statement.

"Cricket Australia, under David Peever, has overseen the destruction of the (international) image of our national game".

"Mark is an outstanding man, who's lived and breathed Australian cricket, who's been on the Board for some time".

Following the release, players responded by revealing a "pact" which they hope will give those at all levels of Australian cricket words of guidance during the upcoming summer - a season which for many is defined by the sport.

Debate about Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft's suspensions has been reignited by Monday's review but Cricket Australia (CA) insist there will be no change. "We believe this is hugely significant".

"Basic fairness demands these independently verified contributing factors must now be taken into consideration and the penalties reduced".

The Longstaff report declared CA had been guilty of having a "winning-without-counting-the-costs" mantra, with the desire to be No.1 in all formats ultimately prompting the ball to be illegally scuffed with sandpaper against the Proteas.

CA has also been urged to conduct a major review of its high-performance unit - Howard is leaving next year - and encouraged to have anyone associated with the high-performance unit banned from taking part in industrial negotiations with players.

Dyer said the initiative to campaign for the stars' return is being driven by the ACA and not the players.

The former head of the Australian Cricket Board and International Cricket Council, Malcolm Speed, has called for new blood at the head of Australian cricket's governing body.

Despite only weeks ago saying goodbye after 17 years in the top job, James Sutherland escaped on Tuesday with barely a mention on a day when it was decreed he had overseen a poisonous culture.

Cricket Australia chairman David Peever and new CEO Kevin Roberts have the task of turning things around.

Particular focus is placed upon the fact that in neither the "How We Play" element of the most recent Australian Cricket Strategy, nor the former coach Darren Lehman " s blueprint "The Australian Way", is any reference made to the spirit of cricket or to respect for opponents and umpires.

However, he denied one of the Longstaff review's findings that players had abused their own staff on match days.

The Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) on Tuesday lifted their spirits by calling for an immediate lifting of the sanctions, which has become the latest wedge between CA and the players' union. If we assume the trio had continued to be selected, they have now missed - including Johannesburg - three Tests.

Smith, captain at the time, and Warner, his vice-captain, are seven months into one-year bans, while Bancroft, who carried out the cheating in South Africa, will be eligible to return in December.

Steve Smith and David Warner came under plenty of fire over the ball tampering scandal but may now have an avenue to appeal their bans.
