Sydney Thunder have terminated the contract of Fazalhaq Farooqi, following a hearing held by Cricket Australia’s Conduct Commissioner.

Following the Commissioner’s ruling, Sydney Thunder took the extra step of terminating the contract.
The club received a complaint about the behaviour of Farooqi following an incident last Thursday and referred the matter to Cricket Australia’s Integrity Unit for investigation.
All impacted parties have been offered support.
Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon said Cricket NSW and Sydney Thunder hold all employees to a high standard of behaviour and accountability.
“The behaviours displayed by Fazalhaq Farooqi sit outside our values and it was determined that his contract be terminated,” Germon said.
“Our focus now is providing the necessary support to those affected by this incident.”
In accordance with the terms of the Integrity Unit investigation, no further comment will be made.
No decision has yet been made about a replacement player.
