The Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) has imposed a two-point sanction on Durham, which is imposed immediately to the club’s Royal London Cup points tally.
The CDC Panel invoked the points deduction following a hearing after Durham had received seven fixed penalty breaches between June 2021 and June 2022.
Durham had previously been handed a suspended points deduction by the CDC Chair on July 1 after it was charged on May 25 for reaching five fixed penalty breaches during a 12-month period.
The suspended sanction imposed on July 1 was for a points deduction of “two points in the Royal London Cup; and/or two points in the Vitality T20 Blast; and/or 16 points in the LV=Insurance County Championship” if the club received two further fixed penalties within 12 months.
Durham incurred two further fixed penalties after it had initially been charged, but before the suspended sanction was imposed on the 1 July. A Disciplinary Panel of the CDC therefore considered the matter and imposed the points deduction in the Royal London Cup.
