Derbyshire County Cricket Club has received a two-point deduction after the club admitted to a charge relating to its Royal London Cup match against Hampshire on Friday, 12 August.

All-rounder Mattie McKiernan was charged and accepted a breach of Directives 3.2 and 3.3 of the Directives of the ECB after he used a cricket bat which failed a bat-gauge test during and after the match.

An Adjudicator of the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) considered McKiernan’s clean record and apology and accepted that it was an unintentional breach of the ECB Directives.

Ricky Needham decided that the offence, while committed unintentionally, must be dealt with on a strict liability basis, in that it is entirely the responsibility of a cricketer to ensure that the equipment being used conforms to the laws of the game.

Derbyshire’s two-point penalty is imposed immediately to the club’s Royal London Cup tally.
