The Cricket Australia (CA) board members approved a change to their code of conduct on Monday that has paved the way for opening batsman David Warner to present a case for his lifetime leadership ban to be uplifted.

The 36-year-old, barred from holding any captaincy positions in the aftermath of the sandpaper gate scandal, can now appeal in front of a three-member panel. A change in the aforementioned rules has now allowed players with long-term penalties imposed on them to ask for a relaxation provided that they prove that they have displayed remorse and altered their behaviour.

CA changes code of conduct – David Warner can overturn ban

Warner has been pushing for his ban to be eased off in recent months. If he gets his way, the southpaw might as well end up leading the Sydney Thunder in the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).

“Any applications will be considered by a three-person review panel, comprising independent Code of Conduct Commissioners. (They) must be satisfied that exceptional circumstances exist to justify modifying a sanction,” the official statement from the CA read, as reported by cricket.com.au.

The board added, “Whether rehabilitation programs have been completed undertaken (if applicable) and the length of time that has passed since the sanction was imposed. And whether sufficient time has passed to allow for reform or rehabilitation.”

Warner had recently signed a two-year-deal with the Thunder. His seniority and stature certainly puts him into consideration to lead the franchise. However, the CA will have to officially revoke the aforementioned suspension for the same.

More importantly, Warner will then be able to put his hat in the ring to take over the captaincy for the Australian One Day International (ODI) team. Regular captain Pat Cummins sat out of Australia’s ODI vs England last weekend and that propelled Josh Hazlewood to become the country’s 28th skipper in the ODI format. 

Warner will arguably be the first-choice to replace Cummins in such a case whenever the pacer takes a break amidst their busy international schedule leading up to the ODI World Cup in India next year.
