Cricket Australia chairman David Peever resigns
Cricket Australia chairman David Peever has resigned.
It comes just six days after he was re-elected at Cricket Australia’s Annual General Meeting.
Following the release of the explosive 145-page Longstaff report into the ball-tampering saga on Monday, Peever had come under increasing public pressure after the review was scathing of the culture around Australian cricket.
He leaves the role after holding the position since 2015.
Deputy Chair, Mr Earl Eddings has been appointed as interim chairman ahead of a permanent appointment being named.
Earlier this week, 3AW Drive’s Tom Elliott called for his resignation.
