Three Cricketers Sanctioned for Gambling

Cricket Australia has charged and sanctioned three cricket players for breaching their anti-corruption code by betting on cricket matches as they continue clamping down on players gambling on the sport.

Victorian Hayley Jensen, Tasmanian Corinne Hall and South Australian Joel Logan have all been banned for two years; however Jensen and Hall had eighteen months of their sentences suspended while Logan had his full sentence suspended. This leaves a six month ban for Jensen and Hall that will see them sitting out from any form of cricket or cricket related events until October 21.

All three players accepted the sanctions and have agreed to undergoing rehabilitation programs or anti-corruption education.

“We take a proactive, zero-tolerance approach to maintaining the integrity of our sport and this includes any form of betting on cricket globally,” stated Iain Roy, head of integrity at Cricket Australia.

“Players in Australia are required to complete an anti-corruption education session before they can compete in any competition, including all players in our Underage National Championships.”

“We continually remind players that betting on any form of cricket is strictly prohibited and this is written into our Anti-Corruption Code.”

“These players have accepted the seriousness of their errors and have voluntarily accepted their sanctions. This serves as a timely reminder to all players in Cricket that the integrity of our game is a high priority and we won’t accept this being compromised.”

Jensen pleaded guilty to placing one bet on the Commonwealth Bank Test between Australia and New Zealand in Brisbane in November. Hall admitted to placing two bets on the Matador BBQs One-Day Test last year. Logan pleaded guilty to placing two bets on the ICC World Twenty20; however he was a Futures League Player contracted on a match-by-match basis at the time.
