Cricket Discipline Commission impose 10-point deduction on Durham

Durham have accepted a 10-point deduction from the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) after batter Nic Maddinson admitted a breach of ECB Directives 3.2 and 3.3.

Maddinson used a bat which failed a bat-gauge test during Durham’s LV= Insurance County Championship match against Derbyshire on 6 September 2022.

The CDC considered the points put in mitigation by Durham Cricket and Maddinson, that the offence was committed unintentionally, but confirmed that the matter had to be dealt on a strict liability basis with the responsibility on players to ensure the equipment they use conforms to the laws of the game.

The CDC therefore decided an immediate 10-point deduction in the 2022 LV= Insurance County Championship was the appropriate penalty with no further sanction.
