Ben Duckett suspension

English batsman Ben Duckett has recently been punished for breaching the code of conduct of the English side. Duckett, who is currently a part of the England Lions side, will not play the remaining fixtures of the series against Australia this season.

In addition to the suspension, Ben Duckett has also been heavily fined. According to the ESPNcricinfo, Duckett was all set to play in the England XI side in the match at Perth, however his act of pouring a drink over James Anderson in a bar has costed him that.

The ECB has announced Joe Clarke to replace Duckett. In the recent times, the England team has been severely hurt due to similar alcohol-related episodes, which ended in ben Stokes and Alex hales getting banned for inifinte period of time.

Following all these incidents, the ECB Director, Andrew Strauss, had announced the curfew hours for the England players citing the irresponsible behavior of the players.

Though, the English team head coach Trevor Bayliss termed these incidents as ‘trivial’. But, going by the recent Ben Duckett incident, it makes it clear that the English players get too much carried away under the influence of alcohol.
