Warner had previously been barred from captaincy in Australian cricket following a lifetime ban as a result of the 2018 ball-tampering scandal, and under the previous code of conduct, players did not have the right to appeal a one-time ban. Can review later. Accepted
The CA issued a statement on Monday stating that the review’s recommendations had been accepted and given formal approval, with Warner now able to apply for a modification of his ban.
“Under the changes, players and support staff can now apply for modifications to long-term bans,” the statement said.
“Any application will be considered by a three-person review panel, including independent Code of Conduct Commissioners, who must be satisfied that exceptional circumstances exist to justify modifying the approval.
“These circumstances and considerations shall include whether the subject of the sanction has demonstrated genuine remorse; the conduct and behavior of the subject since the imposition of the sanction; whether rehabilitation programs have been completed (if applicable); (i.e.) and the length of time that has elapsed since the ban was imposed and whether sufficient time has elapsed for reform or rehabilitation.
“The Code of Conduct describes the process: ‘Recognizes that the player and player support personnel are capable of genuine reformation or rehabilitation and aims to restore the player or player support personnel to their former positions or responsibilities under certain circumstances. To provide an opportunity to restart the streaks.’
“A petition hearing is not an appeal, or review of the original grant.”
Warner also indicated that he is keen to play international cricket until the 2024 T20 World Cup, a tournament which will require Australia to have a new T20I captain.
