    Yet another Australian cricketer banned for betting

    WA women's cricketer banned for betting on day-night Test last November | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo
    A second Australian women's cricketer has been caught out betting on the game this summer, with Western Australia's Piepa Cleary suspended for six months by Cricket Australia for placing bets on the day-night Test in Adelaide last November.

    Cleary, 19, placed six bets totalling $15.50 on various elements of the match between Australia and New Zealand, and like the previous transgressor, Angela Reakes, has been handed a suspended two-year ban.
    Seems a bit harsh. AUD 15 on a men's game?

    lol what a joke

    banned for betting on a game that you're not only not playing, but is being played by a completely different gender

    Yeah this is straight up ridiculous IMO.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    I'll also add that risking this sort of punishment for the sake of $15 worth of bets was hilariously stupid though.

    She did deliberately flout the rules though, a difficult rule to justify I grant you, but that's a different point

    Suspended ban? So she isn't actually banned it is basically just a warning? I have no issue if that is the case.

    The first six months of the ban has been activated. Complete joke.

    At the end of the day, the rules are the rules, even if people think them to be stupid.

    If you place a bet knowingly in breach of rules then you can't complain if you get punished for it if caught.

    Yeah you can complain in the hope that the rules are changed eventually.
