FOUR women members of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) National Academy have been found guilty of a breach of the Code of Conduct following the outcome of a Disciplinary Hearing in terms of the CSA code of conduct.
Chloe Tyron, Moseline Daniels, Shabnim Ismail and Trisha Chetty faced charges of breaching their CSA contractual obligations as well as that of the High Performance Centre in Pretoria in an incident relating to abuse of alcohol that took place on 31 May 2014 while attending the CSA National Academy.
CSA DC Commissioner, Professor Rian Cloete, found them guilty of a breach of clause 1.5.2 of the Code of Conduct in that their conduct on the evening of 31 May 2014 was unbecoming or detrimental which brought them, the Board and the game of cricket into disrepute.
Cloete handed down the following sanction:
1. The four players are officially reprimanded and given a written warning.
2. The four players are suspended from the CSA National Cricket Academy held at the High Performance Centre (HPC), the operation of which is suspended for the duration of the 2014 CSA National Cricket Academy
3. The four players must participate and successfully complete a South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA) prescribed alcohol counselling programme and that the players receive life skills training through the SACA Player Plus Programme within the next 6 months. The CEO of SACA must certify once the programme is satisfactorily completed.
