Cheteshwar Pujara Suspended: Sussex Faces Penalty – ECB’s Shocking Decision

Let’s have a look into the details: Cheteshwar Pujara Suspended

Cheteshwar Pujara’s suspension stems from the unsportsmanlike conduct of his teammates, Jack Carson and Tom Haines, during Sussex’s match against Leicestershire. While Pujara himself did not breach the ECB’s Professional Conduct Regulations, his failure to control his teammates’ conduct led to his suspension.

The ECB released a statement clarifying the reason behind Pujara’s one-match suspension. According to Regulation 4.30 of the Professional Conduct Regulations, if the captain oversees matches in which fixed penalties are imposed, they will receive an automatic one-match suspension.

Besides Pujara’s suspension, Sussex also decided to stand down three players—Jack Carson, Tom Haines, and Ari Karvelas—for their unsportsmanlike behavior during the match against Leicestershire. This incident has not only affected the team’s availability but also resulted in a 12-point deduction.

Cheteshwar Pujara expressed his disappointment about ending the season on this note. Despite the setback, he commended the grit and character displayed by his team during the county season.

Due to the suspension, Pujara will be unavailable for Sussex’s upcoming match against Derbyshire. This absence will undoubtedly impact Sussex’s performance in the game. The incident has marred what was an otherwise fantastic season for Sussex. Their dramatic 15-run win over Leicestershire has been overshadowed by these disciplinary issues.

The ECB’s regulations clearly outline the consequences of repeated violations, emphasizing the importance of maintaining discipline in professional cricket.
