England opener Jason Roy fined, hand 2 match ban | Cricket

English opener Jason Roy has been fined £ 2,500 and given a two-match suspension from international cricket, the ECB has announced.

Roy’s ban is for the next two England matches for which he is eligible for selection, but is “suspended for 12 months depending on good behavior”.

The England and Wales Cricket Board announced the sanctions in a statement on Tuesday, but did not disclose the reasons behind the hearing and did not punish them.

The ECB statement said: “A disciplinary panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission has announced its sanction against Jason Roy after he acknowledged a charge of behaving in a way that could be detrimental to the interests of cricket or which could bring the game of cricket, the ECB and itself into disrepute, in violation of ECB Directive 3.3. “

The 31-year-old is a white ball specialist who averages 40.19 in 98 ODIs hitting the top of the order.

Roy last played for England in the T20I series against the West Indies in January and hopes to be selected for the ODI series against the Netherlands in June this year.
