Discipline in the Professional Game
The Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) is the body that hears disciplinary cases in the professional domestic game in England and Wales.
When charges are brought against individual(s) and/or teams, cases progress through the summary procedure or the Disciplinary Hearing procedure outlined in the CDC Regulations.
More information on the CDC and Disciplinary Hearing process can be found here.

The majority of on-field disciplinary issues are dealt with under the Fixed Penalty system through ECB Regulation 4 of the Professional Conduct Regulations. Individual players who accumulate a number of Fixed Penalties within a set timeframe receive an automatic suspension. Teams whose players accumulate a number of Fixed Penalties within a set timeframe will receive an automatic points penalty.
