ALEX HALES REPRIMANTED OVER OLD CONTROVERSIAL PHOTO

Alex Hales reprimanded over old controversial photo

England opener Alex Hales reprimanded by the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) for an old photo of him in ‘blackface’ at a student party.

Hales previously apologised after a photograph showing him wearing black make-up was published last year.

Hales admitted breaching the England and Wales Cricket Board Directive 3.3, which states: “No such person may conduct himself in a manner or do any act or omission 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.”

The CDC, which hears disciplinary cases in the professional domestic game in England and Wales, found the post amounted to “racist and discriminatory conduct”, leading Hales to be reprimanded. (NewsWire)
