In the wake of the ball-tampering scandal (during the Cape Town Test Match between Australia Vs. South Africa), which left not only Cricket Australia (CA) [the governing body for the game in Australia] but the entire cricketing fraternity in shock, Cricket Australia seems to be determined to make a decisive course correction to prevent recurrence of such incidents. They have announced the setting up of a review paneli to study the behavioral, cultural, organizational and governance aspects of Australian Cricket.
