David Warner May Return As Australia Captain After Changed Rules in CA Code of Conduct

David Warner Captaincy: Following a change to Cricket Australia’s board’s code of conduct guideline, David Warner can now formally request that his lifetime leadership ban be lifted.

Due to his lifetime ban for his role in the 2018 ball-tampering scandal, Warner was previously unable to serve as Australia’s captain. Additionally, under the previous code of conduct, players did not have the right to have a sanction’s acceptance reviewed.

But during the board meeting in October, the CA board asked that Jacqui Partridge, head of integrity at CA, perform a code of conduct review.

David Warner Captaincy Code of Conduct Change: What Cricket Australia Says

The recommendations from that review have been officially accepted by CA, according to a statement they issued on Monday. Warner can now submit an application to have his ban modified.

“Under the changes, players and support staff can now apply to have long-term sanctions modified,” the statement said.

“Any applications will be considered by a three-person Review Panel, comprising independent Code of Conduct Commissioners, which must be satisfied that exceptional circumstances exist to justify modifying a sanction.

“These circumstances and considerations will include whether the subject of the sanction has demonstrated genuine remorse; the subject’s conduct and behaviour since the imposition of the sanction; whether rehabilitation programs have been completed undertaken (if applicable) and the length of time that has passed since the sanction was imposed and whether sufficient time has passed to allow for reform or rehabilitation.

 

The code of conduct states the Process

‘Acknowledges that Players and Player Support Personnel are capable of genuine reform or rehabilitation and is intended to provide the Player or Player Support Personnel with an opportunity to resume their previously held positions or responsibilities in specific circumstances.’

David Warner Captaincy Experience

After captaining in the IPL following his CA leadership suspension, Warner, 35, has been eager to resume a leadership position. He recently mentioned wanting to support Sydney Thunder as a leader when he returns to the BBL.

Warner also made a suggestion that he would like to continue playing for Australia until the 2024 T20 World Cup, when Australia will likely require a new T20I captain.
