Australian cricket fans will discover the findings of two independent reviews in the culture of Cricket Australia on Monday, just four days after the leadership of the governing body continues for the next three years.
The revisions, which will present a new charter for the behavior of Australian cricket players in the field, are expected to be very critical of CA's organizational "arrogance" in recent years, and will be presented by the president of CA, David Peever, and his colleague director Jacquie Hey, after his re-election at the General Board on Thursday.
Special emphasis will be placed on the 2011 Argus-led review, which recommended the addition of performance-based payment to the hiring system, setting clear objectives for Australia as number one in all three formats of the game, and the appointment of the team's performance manager, Pat Howard, as a "single point of responsibility" for team performance.
After joining the Board in 2012, Peever is scheduled to be approved by the state associations for the second consecutive term, the first to have this honor since Denis Rogers from 1995 to 2001, at the General Meeting on Thursday. While it is governed by an independent board of nine members, CA is owned by the six state associations, which retain the reserve powers to dismiss the directors of the individual boards or the president by a two-thirds majority.
As part of a three-day meeting that presents CA's annual general meeting on Thursday morning, the presidents of state associations and executive heads will meet Peever, outgoing executive director James Sutherland and his successor Roberts in a conference on Wednesday. The Australian Cricketers Association will also be present
. At this meeting, the findings of the cultural review directed by Simon Longstaff of CA as a whole, and the review directed by Rick McCosker of the Australian men's national team, are expected to be shared for the first time. time with these "key stakeholders". It is expected that other important partners, such as broadcasters and sponsors, will engage in private before the public launch on Monday.
Peever announced that he had the backing of the board of directors and, by extension, the states will continue as president for another three years. June, the day Sutherland revealed that he would resign as CEO after 17 years. Board chairman Bob Every, former president of Wesfarmers, had previously resigned in protest at Peever's intention to continue.
Preliminary versions of the cultural reviews were seen by the board before making a final decision on whether to choose Roberts as Sutherland replacement. Roberts had appeared as the clear apparent heir to Sutherland since leaving the board to join the CA executive in 2015. Peever and Roberts joined the board on the same day in 2012.
Ni Longstaff, director of the corporate culture body The Ethics The Center, or McCosker, who played 25 Tests for Australia, will be present in Melbourne for public announcements of the reviews.
