Cricket Australia Confirms that Ban on the Trio will Remain

Posted by Atin Jain on November 20th, 2018

India vs Australia is one of the fiercest battles in cricket. There have been many interesting matches between the two and the matches are totally unpredictable as anything could happen and no one knows who will win the match in the last.

To predict the outcome of the match between India and Australia is a difficult task but experts at Cricadium have tried hard to give the most accurate cricket match prediction for the first T20 match at The Gabba, Brisbane just for the entertainment purpose.

The Australian trio who was suspended for their involvement in ball-tampering in South Africa includes Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft. The bans on the players won’t be lifted in upcoming India vs Australia series, says CA.

Earlier, Australian Cricketer’s Association (ACA) had demanded to bring back Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft before their suspension periods. Steve Smith and David Warner are serving a year-long ban while Cameron Bancroft was suspended for 9 months.

The ban on Cameron Bancroft will end on December 29, 2018, and Warner and Smith ban will end on March 29, 2019. Before that, the trio could not return.

CA Interim Chair Earl Eddings said, “The Cricket Australia Board has carefully considered all elements of the ACA submission and has determined that it is not appropriate to make any changes to the sanctions handed down to the three players,”.

He said that they have reconsidered the sanctions as they apply to each of Steve, David, and Cameron in light of the ACA’s submission and the Ethics Centre Review and Recommendations. Now, the Cricket Australia Board doesn’t intend to consider further calls for amendments to the sanctions.

Eddings said that The original decision of the Board to sanction the players was determined after rigorous discussion and consideration. CA maintains that both the length and nature of the sanctions remain an appropriate response in light of the considerable impact on the reputation of Australian cricket, here and abroad.

Further Eddings said that though they recognize that this decision will be disappointing for the ACA but they thank them for their submission. Their commitment to continue building a strong relationship between CA and the ACA in the interests of cricket in Australia remains and they look forward to meeting with them shortly to that end.

India’s Tour of Australia will start from November 21. The tour will consist of the 3 T20Is, followed by 4 Tests and will end with 3 ODIs. Cricadium’s first T20 match prediction is already out.
