ECB suspends Jason Roy

London, March 23 : Jason Roy has been handed a two-match suspension for an undisclosed misconduct, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced. “A disciplinary panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission has announced its sanction on Jason Roy after he 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,” the ECB said. The details of the offence have not been disclosed. Following a full disciplinary hearing at which all available evidence was heard, the disciplinary panel ruled that Roy should 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 behaviour” The board also slapped Roy with a fine of 2500 pounds, which he has to pay by March 31, 2022. Roy, who famously helped England win the 50-over World Cup in 2019, recently announced he was taking a “short indefinite break” from cricket. The flamboyant batter had also pulled out of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), citing extended stay in the tournament bubble. Gujarat Titans had added Roy to their squad for his base price Rs 2 crore at the mega auction. Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz replaced Roy at Gujarat Titans for his base price Rs 50 lakh.
