Ball-tampering is an international problem: Justin Langer

Taylor said he is looking forward to the review being made public

Matthews, a board member for the Australian Cricketers Association focusing on retired players' futures, said he was shocked at how little past Test players had done to better cricket's deteriorating culture.

Earlier, Cricket Australia chairman David Peever said the sanctions handed out to Warner, Smith and Bancroft in the aftermath of the ball tampering incident that unfurled in the Newlands Test would not be lifted.

"This, we believe, is hugely significant".

"Common sense, common decency, basic fairness, proportionality and natural justice demand that the punishment is reduced".

STEVE Smith will expose the farcical nature of his year-long ban by heading off to play in the Arabian Desert on the same day as kick-off for Australia's showpiece Big Bash League.

Saudi Arabia says it will prosecute Khashoggi killers
Most recently, the kingdom said that the killing of the Washington Post columnist was "premeditated" by Saudi operatives. Saudi Arabia has said they will be tried in Saudi courts. "If I knew something like this would happen", she said.

The reviews found the administrators were as much to blame as the players for the ball-tampering scandal that drove the game into crisis during the March tour of South Africa.

On Monday, the CA chairman, David Peever, said he accepted full responsibility for the ball-tampering scandal but he remained adamant he would not step down from his position.

As quoted by Fox Sports Australia, the review reports found that, "There were frequent comments noting the huge pressure on players always to win and the unacceptability of anything less than in all forms of the game".

Peever has so far avoided joining an exodus of senior figures, with chief executive James Sutherland, coach Darren Lehmann and team performance boss Pat Howard all resigning in the wake of the scandal.

There is the possibility Smith and Warner could now be allowed to play in the domestic summer for their states and BBL teams in a bid to be ready for next year's Ashes series.

Man trying to kill black widow spiders with blowtorch burns house down
According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, the man was house-sitting for his parents Tuesday night when he discovered the spiders. The young man also managed to escape the blaze which took place in the Woodward Lake housing development unscathed.

Greg Dyer, the head of the Australian players' union, said all three players had been punished enough.

Smith, Warner and Bancroft are the only players named in the report.

Longstaff recommends the establishment of a CA ethics commission and an Australian Cricket Council which would meet twice a year to consider "issues of strategic significance". "I think the Australian public wants that and that would be good for cricket". "I didn't see that in my time", he said.

The Australian Cricketers Association yesterday confirmed a report in The Daily Telegraph that they would lodge an official submission with Cricket Australia for the bans to be revised and possibly even scrapped on the "new evidence" exposed in the cultural review.

Roberts pointed out the three players had not appealed their suspensions at the time, while public sentiment was mixed. "I know that Smith will be passionate, he's still only young, he loves cricket and he's got that drive to get back there".

Trump links anger in society to 'inaccurate reporting by mainstream media'
The device meant for Holder, who served as attorney general in Obama's administration, turned up at the Florida offices of U.S. None had exploded, and it wasn't immediately clear if they were meant to cause physical harm or simply sow fear and anxiety.

He claimed Cricket Australia had the "moral obligation" to let the three players return to worldwide cricket. "They gave us a lot of feedback around that, so it's important to note that came through in the overall Longstaff report", Nicholson said.
