Mark Taylor is the latest Cricket Australia figure to resign.

Mark Taylor has stood down from his role as Cricket Australia director as the fallout from the scathing independent review into the governing body continued.

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.”
