Jason Roy handed suspended two-match ban

Jason Roy, the England batter, has been handed a two-match ban which is suspended for 12 months subject to good behaviour while he has also been asked to pay a fine of GBP 2,500 by March 31.

The ECB has not revealed the reasons for sanctions apart from stating 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 – publish 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.”
