Cricket Player Gets Six-Month Ban for Betting $15.50 on Test Match between Australia and New Zealand

Tags: cricket, Piepa Cleary.
Posted on Tuesday, February 09, 2016 by "T".

Piepa Cleary, a 19-year old female cricketer who played for the Pertch Scorchers in the Women's Big Bash Legue, becomes the second Aussie woman player in hot water and has been banned for six months after placing bets totaling $15.50, which was a breach in anti-corruption code of Cricket Australia.

Cleary placed bets on the test match between Australia and New Zealand in late November. This placing of bets is a breach in the Anti-Corruption Code that relates to "placing, accepting, laying or entering into any bet in relation to the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of any match or event."

The young cricketer was officially sanctioned a 24-month ban. However, 18 of the months of suspension will be suspended if she does not commit any other offence. This means that Cleary will have to sit out all official cricket games within the next 6 months - this includes functions and cricket-related events.

A CA statement on Thursday states that Cleary admitted to the charges and would accept the ban. The breach is similar to Angel Reakes 24-month suspended sentence late last year. However, CA stated that Cleary's penalty is tougher due to aggravating factors, including the fact that they recently had face-to-face anti-corruption training two months recently.

Iain Roy, head of CA integrity unit said, "We continue to remind all elite cricketers and officials that betting on any form of cricket is strictly prohibited.
"It is outlined in the anti-corruption education that we deliver annually and is written into our anti-corruption code.

"Piepa has heard this message many times through the anti-corruption education sessions that we deliver and accepts that in placing the bets she exercised poor judgment.

"Bets totaling $15.50 might seem small but it doesn't matter. We take a zero tolerance approach to any form of gambling on cricket by players in order to protect the integrity of the game.

"It has been made very clear that if Piepa breaches the code in any way again she will receive a significantly lengthier suspension."

Christina Matthews, WACA chief said, "We are naturally disappointed that one of our players has been involved in an incident such as this.

"Cricket in this country is held in high regard for its integrity and it is important for the future of the sport that remains the case and the WACA understands and supports the sanctions that have been handed down in this instance.

"Piepa will have to work hard to regain some respect from this incident, but she remains an important member of WA cricket and has taken responsibility for her actions.
"The WACA works alongside CA in ensuring all players and staff have an understanding of permissible behavior.

"This serves as a reminder for those who need one as to how serious anti-corruption is taken in cricket and it is my expectation that this is the last issue of its kind the WACA has to deal with."

of course that big of a crime as an illegal betting of such horrific magnitude like 15 and a half dollaros must be punished with extreme measurements. such crimes just show the true levels of degeneration that our society has come to witness each and every day. oh my- 15 and a half dollaros... such horrible crime...

I know that $15.50 bet is not a big amount and big story about it.

However if he for this time bet a small amount can we say it was a tried to see if he could bet on games without problem then a little more for an other try and so on.

This guy would have make a lot of money if he had not been caught the first.

I know that i am going far but i am pretty sure that you all know about a baseball player who did bet for many years and there probably may of players in all sports that are doing it. Aww crap! Aww crap!

Thank God that they were able to catch this master-criminal and get her out of the loop for a long time. Yeah, every sport need to follow these measures - no matter how stupid, inconsistent and downright degrading are they...
Christ, dumbness knows no borders, isn't it?

I agree with the ban? Who decides if an amount is small or not? Me? You?

The rule states all betting is banned.

She knew this and chose to break the rule. She knew the consequences and now has to deal with it.

Yeah, it's not like there are some stupid and/or non-stupid rules at the same time with many instances in many places - no. Whatever they tell you to follow, u have to follow it 'cuz those are the rules.
Gimmie a break.

The article says it's a young 19 yrs old female cricket player guys, for those who did not see. I can't believe that this age, she already had her mind to make this kind of business. Not good for us sports betting lovers...

A crime is a crime, regardless of the value involved. It doesn't matter whether she bet .50c or 5million...... The issue is it is very naughty and should not have been done. People should know what they can and can't do and not so the naughty things they should not do. But betting on cricket?

Thepoint is, WHO decides what the cut off is.
I mean $15 is ok? How about $150? $1500? $15000? $150000?

The rule is a blanket ban, she broke the rule.
