Sussex CCC sanctioned by Cricket Discipline Commission Panel

Sussex CCC have been deducted points by a Cricket Discipline Commission

A Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) Panel has deducted 24 points from Sussex CCC’s final Bob Willis Trophy points total.

Following an incident involving Mitchell Claydon during Sussex CCC’s Bob Willis Trophy match against Middlesex CCC on 23 August, Sussex CCC admitted to breaching ECB Directives 3.3 and 3.7 which state:

3.3 No Participant may conduct themself in a manner or do any act or omission at any time which is improper or which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket or which may bring the ECB, the game of cricket or any cricketer or group of cricketers into disrepute.

3.7 Contravention of the Bob Willis Trophy Playing Conditions 5 or 41.2 … shall be regarded as (i) unfair and improper conduct; and (ii) conduct prejudicial to the interests of cricket and likely to bring the game into disrepute.

The Panel, chaired by Mark Milliken-Smith QC, met on Thursday 8 October and imposed the sanction.

The Panel had previously met on 30 September where Claydon was suspended for nine matches after admitting to a charge relating to altering the condition of the ball.

The full CDC decisions in relation to the Disciplinary Panel Hearings can be found here.
