James Sutherland's position is safe, says Cricket Australia chairman David Peever

The incident, which happened on the recent tour to South Africa, has seen Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft receive substantial punishments for their part in the scandal.

But Smith understood the gravity of why the penalties were handed out, and grasped the fact they were about far more than ball tampering, but about bringing the game into disrepute.

Warner, on late Thursday morning, tweeted, "I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me". As announced yesterday, all have now accepted the sanctions, without appeal.

Smith's post read: 'I would give anything to have this behind me and be back representing my country. But I meant what I said about taking full responsibility as Captain of the team. He then added that "I feel they [Ten] are not prepared to challenge their operating model to be anything other than bottom feeders in this market".

Warner is banned from all cricket in Australia for 12 months and is expelled from ever holding a leadership position again in Australian cricket.

Smith and Bancroft confirmed on Wednesday that they had accepted the Cricket Australia (CA) sanctions.

Apple releases iOS 11.3 update with new Animoji and Battery Health feature
The update, iOS 11.3, is technically one of a dozen official updates to the iOS 11 operating system since it debuted in September. In addition to the privacy icon, Apple will also start providing privacy management tools in compliance with the new GDPR ruling.

The former Australia vice-captain was regarded as the ringleader as the tourists were caught attempting to manipulate the condition of the ball in last month's third Test against South Africa at Cape Town.

All three players have admitted what they did was wrong and a wave of sympathy has been growing for Smith since his public apology, during which he broke down in tears. Warner, like Smith and Bancroft, have decided not to contest their bans as well.

The fallout from the scandal comes as Cricket Australia pushes for an $850 million-plus broadcasting rights deal to cover the next five years.

The review will provide recommendations to the Board of Cricket Australia. There is a sense within the first-class game that Cricket Australia's stance has softened slightly after he showed humility and regret.

In audio obtained by ESPNcricinfo, Peever is heard on a teleconference call to the state associations on March 26 - the day after the Newlands Test concluded - making noises about wanting the game to be an encouragement to parents and their children, before lapsing into something more cynical about the public reaction to the events.

"We know the players will return to playing the game they love", Sutherland said, "and in doing so, we hope they rebuild their careers and regain the trust of fans".
