Earlier, after reviewing a submission by the players’ union to cut the penalties, Cricket Australia (CA) ruled against the trio of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft and they will have to serve their full bans.

CA interim chairman Earl Eddings said the board had “determined that it is not appropriate to make any changes to the sanctions handed down to the three players”.

Smith and Warner, then Australia’s captain and vice-captain, were banned from state and international cricket for 12 months over the incident in South Africa in March, while Bancroft was suspended for nine months.

There has been pressure on the governing body to reinstate the players amid a recent poor run of results.

The scandal, which rocked the sport, had far-reaching consequences in Australia with a clean-out of top executives from CA after a scathing review blamed its culture as partly contributing to players bending the rules.

The Australian Cricketers’ Association argued that the blame attributed to CA by the independent review was grounds to have the bans lifted.
