Essex CCC charged with breach of ECB Directive
Essex County Cricket Club (Essex CCC) has today been charged in relation to an alleged racist comment made in 2017 at an Essex CCC Executive Board meeting, and the subsequent failure by Essex CCC to conduct an appropriate, or any, investigation into the alleged racist comment.
The club has been charged with a breach of ECB Directive 3.3 which reads as follows:
"No Participant may conduct themself in a manner or do any act or omission at any time which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket or which may bring the ECB, the game of cricket or any Cricketer or group of Cricketers into disrepute."
A panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission will now hear the case, and adjudicate. A further update will be provided following conclusion of the case.
