CA charges Ryan Harris for Twitter rant over BBL match

Cricket Australia charges Ryan Harris for breaching code of conduct through Twitter rant

Cricket Australia has subsequently defended the decision, while the Queensland Cricket chief executive Max Walters has questioned why the board was so eager to worry about technicalities over the wider appeal of the game. Cricket Australia reportedly stated that the reason for the reprimand, which included a fine of 3000 AUD, was for "breaching CA's Code of Conduct Article Level 2.2.3 - Public or media comment that is detrimental to the interests of cricket, irrespective of when or where such comment is made".

The cricketer was charged for committing an offence in a game against Hobart Hurricanes playing for his home side, Brisbane Heat in the ongoing Big Bash League in Australia at Gabba on January 10.

"Every player and any player support personnel are required to adhere to Cricket Australia's Code of Conduct".

The drama started when Burns' teammate Alex Ross was dismissed for obstructing the field during a BBL match between Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes. This includes any person employed by, contracted to, representing or otherwise affiliated to CA or any State or Territory Association or BBL/WBBL Team, read the CApress release.

The former Australian pacer accepted the reprimand as well as a suspended fine, which will not be enforced if Harris is not found guilty of another breach in the next two years. "The third umpire concluded that the change of running direction of the batsman, after seeing the direction of the throw, obstructed the wicketkeeper's opportunity to affect the run-out".

Ross became the first batsman to be given out for "obstructing the field" in a BBL match. The ball then hit his bat and disturbed the bails. While Glenn Maxwell, Ryan Harris and Andrew Tye all came out on Twitter slamming the dismissal, Dean Jones argued that the trajectory of Ross' run makes him susceptible to decisions such as this.
