A general view of Essex County Cricket Club

Charge: Essex County Cricket Club

Essex County Cricket Club has been charged following a Cricket Regulator investigation into allegations of non-recent racist or discriminatory conduct at the club.

The club has been charged with a breach of ECB Directive 3.3 following the investigation into allegations which covered a significant period of time.

ECB Directive 3.3 concerns conduct, acts or omissions which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket or which may bring the game of cricket or any cricketer or group of cricketers into disrepute.

It is alleged by the Cricket Regulator that there was systemic use of racist and/or discriminatory language and/or conduct at Essex, during the period between 2001 and 2010, which Essex failed to address.

An independent panel of the Cricket Discipline Commission will hear the case in due course. No further comment will be made until the case is concluded.
