Former Australia vice-captain David Warner has broken his silence in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal that has rocked Australian cricket.
 
Warner was found to have been responsible for the "development of a plan to attempt to artificially alter the condition of the ball", and "instruction to a junior player to carry out a plan".
 
The 31-year-old was also charged with providing advice to a junior player on how to tamper with the ball "including demonstrating how it could be done".
 
Warner is also accused of misleading the Newlands match officials by concealing his knowledge of and involvement in the plan and did not voluntarily report his involvement.
 
Warner will never again be considered for any leadership position, while Steve Smith (12-month ban) and Cameron Bancroft (nine months) must wait 12 months after serving their ban before they can be considered for a leadership role.
 
Any appointment would be conditional on form, stature in the playing group and, perhaps most importantly, acceptance by fans and the public.
 
As confirmed by CA's Board, Tim Paine is the captain of the Test team.
