A report described Cricket Australia’s “arrogant” and “controlling” culture as contributory factors for the ball-tampering incident in the Test series against South Africa earlier this year.
Chairman David Peever resigned three days after the report’s release and – though Taylor was linked as a potential successor – the former Australia captain has decided to end his 13-year tenure on the board.
He said: “As Australian cricket faces up to its latest challenge, the time has therefore arrived for me to step back.
“I reached this decision following a high degree of soul searching and, importantly, having the game’s best interests clearly in mind.”
