Cricket Australia chief steps down after damning report

While he hasn't spoken publicly about his departure, and did not want to when contacted by Fairfax Media, in his resignation email he pointed to the poor handling of the pay negotiations past year, Peever's comments about Channel Ten being a "bottom feeder" during the tense broadcast rights negotiations, and the former chairman's alleged unwillingness to groom a successor for James Sutherland, who has since departed as chief executive and been replaced Kevin Roberts.

Earl Eddings, a former Cricket Victoria director who was confirmed as deputy chair at last week's AGM, has been installed as interim chair until the board convenes in the near future to undertake the process of making a permanent appointment.

The favourite. The Victorian was appointed interim chairman following Mr Peever's resignation, having also been named deputy chairman at last week's annual general meeting.

Peever jumped before he was pushed on Thursday, resigning his post amid a deafening chorus of criticism.

David Peever has resigned as Cricket Australia's Chairman.

Former Australia captain Ian Chappell said CA had become "a joke", while a governance expert who helped remodel the board into its modern entity described Peever's re-election only days before the review's release as "astonishing".

The attempt by Bancroft to use sandpaper to alter the condition of the ball during the Test match, with the knowledge of Smith and Warner, caused "grief" among the Australian public, Longstaff said.

One of the leading contenders has already ruled himself out.

"Given my media role, I don't believe being chairman would be appropriate", Taylor told Wide World of Sports.

Embattled Cricket Australia (CA) chairman David Peever has resigned on Thursday in the wake of a scathing review of the board's governance and culture.

Former skipper Taylor's promotion is no fait accompli.

If the board heeds Malcolm Speed's call for a "dyed-in-the-wool cricket" leader, then the former president of the players' union could be their man. He had been in the running to replace Sutherland before CA went in-house and named Roberts.

With Taylor removing himself from the frame, the remaining candidates on CA´s board boast little pedigree in the sport, with only former test bowler Michael Kasprowicz having played the game at a high level.

"We've just got to get the right people in the right positions".
