Three Australian cricketers banned for gambling
Melbourne: Three Australian cricketers have been sanctioned over gambling-related breaches of Cricket Australia's anti-corruption code.
CA said that female players Hayley Jensen and Corinne Hall, both with state and domestic T20 contracts, and men's Futures League competitor Joel Logan were charged for "placing, accepting, laying or entering into any bet in relation to the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of any match."
It said Jensen bet on the result of the Brisbane test between Australia and New Zealand in November 2015, while Hall placed wagers on men's one-day domestic matches.
Logan bet on the World Twenty20 tournament in March 2015. Jensen and Hall received 24-month bans, suspended after six months, and Logan a suspended two-year ban as long as no additional offenses are committed.
