England bowler banned for placing 303 bets on cricket matches


England pacer Brydon Carse has been banned from playing cricket after being found guilty of breaching ECB’s (England Cricket Board) gambling regulations by placing 303 bets on several cricket games between 2017 and 2019.

England Cricket expects that Brydon’s case can serve as an “educational example” for the other cricketers plying their trade in the domestic and international circuit.

“We take these matters extremely seriously and do not condone any form of anti-corruption breach in cricket,” an ECB spokesperson said.

“We support the Cricket Regulator’s decision and their consideration of the mitigating factors in Brydon’s case. He has co-operated and shown remorse for his actions. We are satisfied that Brydon has shown growth in the five years since this breach and has demonstrated a greater understanding of his responsibilities.

“We are hopeful that his case can serve as an educational example for other cricketers.”
