Jason Roy, the England opener, has been fined for an amount of £2500 to pay until March 31 and banned for two matches who will be suspended for 12 months ban subjected to good behavior.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) has not stated the reasons for the ban but stated that:
“Roy has admitted a charge of conducting himself in a manner which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket or which may bring the game of cricket, the ECB and himself into disrepute, in breach of ECB Directive 3.3.”
Usually, the Cricket Discipline Committee (CDC) – the body which conducts disciplinary proceedings for the cricketers – publishes full written reasons for any action taken. Their guidelines do, however, allow them to refrain from doing so when the CDC determines that
“for any reason that it is appropriate that they should only be published in part or not published at all.”
“Following a full disciplinary hearing at which all available evidence was heard, the Disciplinary Panel ruled that Mr. Roy should: (i) be suspended from the next two England matches for which he is eligible for selection, but that such suspension be suspended for 12 months dependent on good behavior; and (ii) pay a fine of GBP 2,500 by March 31, 2022,”said the statement.
Roy has last played for England during their defeat in the T20I series against West Indies in January. He later participated in the PSL, playing for Quetta Gladiators, but opted out of IPL while featuring for the Gujarat Titans, stating that the cricket in the pandemic enforced bio-bubbles had taken a toll on him over the last three years, and that he wanted to spend time with his family.
