The Sydney Sixers and all-rounder Tom Curran have tonight confirmed their intention to lodge an appeal against the 4-match sanction handed down under the Cricket Australia Code of Conduct.

Curran was charged with a Level 3 offence and issued with four Suspension Points under clause 2.17 of the CA Code of Conduct following a BBL match in Launceston earlier this month.

Clause 2.17 relates to ‘Intimidation or attempted intimidation of an Umpire or Match Referee whether by language or conduct (including gestures) during a Match.’.

During a hearing before Code of Conduct Commissioner Adrian Anderson, Curran outlined how, while conducting his usual pre-match run ups prior to play, he had run towards the stumps, where the match official was standing.

Commissioner Anderson found Curran guilty of the charge and ordered the 4-match sanction. All parties have seven days to appeal the ruling by the Commissioner.

Head of Sydney Sixers Rachael Haynes said Curran and the club would vigorously appeal the sanction, while providing support for Curran:

“Tom and the club maintain that Tom did not knowingly or intentionally intimidate a match official, and on legal advice, we will exercise our right to appeal the decision. We will support Tom during this period and look forward to him returning to the field.”

Neither the club, nor Tom Curran, will be making further comment until the matter has concluded.
