They made a grave mistake, but they are not bad people: Lehmann

"We need to change how we play".

It will bring together former and current players, match officials and the MCC to look at the current offences in the Code of Conduct and the sanctions available.

I think Steve Smith was guilty of making a severe error of judgement. "It was a failure of my leadership. They have made a grave mistake but they are not bad people", Lehmann added.

Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland on Thursday said that he will not resign in the wake of the ball tampering incident that has shaken the Australian cricket.

"This is the first time I've seen this happen and I can assure you it will never happen again", he said.

"I don't blame anyone".

"What happened in Cape Town has already been laid down.I want to make clear, as captain of the Australian cricket team, I take full responsibility". I hope the media and the fans don t forget that.

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke says he is seriously concerned for the welfare of the three players caught in the ball tampering scandal.

"It's important we remember there is a young man at the centre of all this, he made a poor choice, as I and I'm sure many of us have done during our lives".

"Saying goodbye to the players was the toughest thing I have ever had to do. I'm sorry and I'm absolutely devastated", said Smith, who won't be able to captain the country for next two years.

"I would like to apologise to the Australian public and the cricket family".

"I am now on my way back to Sydney", Warner posted in a message to "cricket fans in Australia and all over the world" on social media. The institution in a statement said it will continue to support women's, grassroots and indigenous cricket in partnership with Cricket Australia. "It is something I will regret for the rest of my life", Bancroft said. "I'm sorry for what's entailed since then". "And this can be a big challenge but the boys will be doing whatever possible they can to make people proud of them".

Warner, who was identified as the instigator of the attempt to cheat by the Cricket Australia probe, broke his silence via Instagram, apologising and taking responsibility for his "part" in the scandal. I understand the distress this has caused to the sport and its fans.

"Coaching the Australian cricket team is a real high and for me I'm looking forward to having some time off and what's the next step from there, I'd love to stay involved in the game because I love it so much".

Opening batsman Bancroft was banned for nine months for his part in the affair.

The bombshell came after Warner lost a personal sponsor LG and was blacklisted from the Indian Premier League, where he was set to earn $2.4 million captaining Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Three years ago England's one-day team took their inspiration from the way Brendon McCullum's New Zealand played but at that time Australia sneered at the Kiwis "nice" brand of cricket.

He has been sent home, suspended for 12 months, ordered to complete 100 hours of community service in Aussie grassroots cricket and been told he will never be considered for a leadership position in the Aussie cricket team.
