England Pacer Brydon Carse Faces All-Format Ban After Breaching ECB’s Gambling Regulations

Brydon Carse’s Ban From Cricket: England fast bowler Brydon Carse has been banned from playing cricket after being found guilty of breaching the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) gambling regulations by placing 303 bets on various cricket matches between 2017 and 2019. Carse cooperated with the Cricket Regulator during the anti-corruption investigation and has received a 16-month ban, with 13 of those months suspended for two years. The 29-year-old will be ineligible for selection until August 28.

Carse, born in South Africa, has played 14 ODIs and three T20Is for England since his international debut in July 2021. He will be unable to participate in any cricket until August 28. The 28-year-old allrounder, who represents Durham in domestic cricket, did not place any bets on matches in which he was involved.

Carse’s Case Will Serve As Educational Example For Others: ECB

The ECB released an official statement expressing their serious stance against anti-corruption breaches in cricket, supporting the Cricket Regulator’s decision regarding Brydon Carse’s case. Despite his cooperation and remorse, Carse has been banned from cricket until August 28. The ECB acknowledges Carse’s growth and increased understanding of his responsibilities over the past five years since the breach, hoping his case will serve as an educational example for other cricketers.

“We take these matters extremely seriously and do not condone any form of anti-corruption breach in cricket. We support the Cricket Regulator’s decision and their consideration of the mitigating factors in Brydon’s case. He has co-operated and shown remorse for his actions. We are satisfied that Brydon has shown growth in the five years since this breach and has demonstrated a greater understanding of his responsibilities. We are hopeful that his case can serve as an educational example for other cricketers,” reads the official ECB statement.

The ban potentially excludes Carse from England’s Test series against West Indies, which will also mark James Anderson’s final appearance for England. Given that England will need someone to slot in place of Anderson after his retirement, Carse emerges as a viable option due to his solid performance in the first-class circuit. With 124 wickets in 47 matches at an average of 33.55.
