England Fast Bowler Brydon Carse Receives Three-Month Ban for Betting Violations

Live TV News


England paceman Brydon Carse has been handed a three-month ban from all cricket due to betting violations, as announced on Friday.

The 28-year-old, who joined England's 50-over World Cup squad six months ago, received a 16-month sanction, with 13 months suspended, following an anti-corruption investigation by the English Cricket Regulator.

Carse, who secured an England central contract in October, admitted to placing 303 bets on various cricket matches between 2017 and 2019, though none of these involved games he was playing in.

Despite this, the Durham fast bowler still breached integrity rules, which prohibit any "professional participant" (players, coaches, or other support staff) from betting on cricket worldwide.

Born in South Africa, Carse has played 17 white-ball internationals for England. His suspension begins immediately, barring him from participating in any cricket until August 28.

"Although these bets were made several years ago, that does not excuse my actions, and I accept full responsibility," Carse stated on Durham's website. 

"I want to thank the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), Durham Cricket, and the PCA (England's Professional Cricketers' Association) for their support during this challenging time. I will work hard over the next 12 weeks to repay their support on the field when I return."

An ECB spokesperson commented: "We take these matters very seriously and do not condone any form of anti-corruption breach in cricket. We support the Cricket Regulator's decision and appreciate their consideration of the mitigating factors in Brydon's case. He has cooperated fully and shown remorse. We believe he has grown in the five years since the breach and now has a better understanding of his responsibilities. We hope his case serves as an educational example for other cricketers."

Carse last played for England in a one-day international against the West Indies in Antigua in December last year. His suspension will prevent him from making a Test debut this season, with England's final Test match against Sri Lanka at The Oval starting on September 6, just over a week after his ban ends.
