"I think the biggest eye-opener for people in cricket was the reaction to the recent incidents in the series between Australia and South Africa", he said.

"Hopefully through these actions of reviewing the code of conduct and developing a culture of respect. we will achieve that goal".

In the wake of the ball tampering incident by Australian cricketers against South Africa, International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Dave Richardson has called for "stricter and heavier sanction" for any such act as well as showing lack of respect for the game. The CEO added that have the three venues to choose from for the upcoming Tests in the 2019-2023 FTP. We are committed to growing the game and T20 is the vehicle through which we'll do this and removing restrictions and having all Members ranked is a positive step forward.

"We haven't played there before, an element of unpredictability might have crept in with no previous record at the ground", he said. "Assuming that we can get all of the cricket world united in a desire to be part of the Olympics, then I think we will have a very good chance of pursuing the International Olympic Committee that cricket is sport that can add value to the Olympics going forward", Richardson said.
