CDC imposes six-point sanction on Lancashire County Cricket Club

ECB Logo

Lancashire CCC has been docked six points in the LV= Insurance County Championship for disciplinary breaches.

Lancashire has received a six-point deduction in the LV= Insurance County Championship, following a hearing of a Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) panel.

The CDC panel hearing was convened after Lancashire had incurred two Fixed Penalties within 12 months of being handed a suspended sanction on 10 November 2021.

The fixed penalties were incurred in Lancashire’s County Championship matches against Warwickshire (12-15 June) and Northamptonshire (19-22 July) and were both minimum Level 1 offences.

The original panel had imposed a maximum 12-point suspended sanction on Lancashire for the County Championship, with the proviso that any subsequent points deduction should take into account the severity of any further beaches within the 12-month period.

The CDC panel took into account the fact that both Fixed Penalties were Level 1 and decided a six-point sanction, imposed immediately, was appropriate.

The CDC Panel’s written reasons are available, here.
