In relation to the action taken by Cricket Australia, Jane Power, Bupa Chief Marketing & Customer Officer has released the following statement.

“We appreciate the speed in which Cricket Australia has responded to the ball tampering issue. Our sports people need to be role models for our children and the bar needs to be set high. We support the sanctions handed down to the players involved and are encouraged that those involved are getting the health support and care they need during this time. We fully support the decision to have a full review of the culture of Cricket Australia. It is critical to us that we have partners that are aligned to Bupa’s values and expectations of the broader Australian community."
