Australian Cricketer Banned 2 Years for $9 Bets on the Cricket World Cup Final

Posted on 30 December 2015 by "T".

A mere $9 on over 5 bets placed on the 2015 Men's Cricket World Cup final had landed female Australian cricketer Angela Reakes in hot water with the officials of the sport, Cricket Australia (CA), and they charged her for breaching the anti-corruption code.

Angela Reakes, 24, is a member of the Sydney Sixers in the Women's Big Bash League. Just last week, Reakes received a suspended 2-year ban as a consequence for her betting on the 2015 Men's Cricket World Cup final in March 29, in which Australia beat New Zealand and won the coveted title for the fourth time.

The suspended ban simply means that Reakes will be closely monitored and must take a long absence from the sport in case she violates Australia's anti-corruption code again.

Head of Cricket Australia's integrity unit Iain Roy remarked, "All elite cricketers are reminded regularly that betting on any form of cricket is strictly prohibited. Angela understands that in placing these bets she made a bad mistake and has acknowledged the seriousness of her error. She has been cooperative during the investigation and we believe the penalty in these circumstances is appropriate."

In addition to the ban, Reakes received an official reprimand and will also be required to participate in educating other cricketers on anti-corruption issues, mainly about illegal betting.

Reakes voluntarily accepted the sanctions and if she does not breach the code while on suspended ban, she will be allowed to play again.

This story of Angela Reakes only goes to show that Australians are indeed the biggest spenders on gambling in the world.

the moral of the story:

1. never mess with politicians, regulators, officials etc. (aka mofos)
2. if you mess with mofos make sure your bets, projects, activity doesn't lack zeros at the end... pretty sure $9 million bets would have gone unnoticed, but hey $9 dollaros are just plain wrong... (there's no money left to pay the "investigation fee" for the mofos... so they must report you).
3. happy new year.

I never understood very well why a simple base worker from a company can't participate in a contest launched by the same company, once he has nothing to do with its organization and can't try to change things on his favour. Ok, he's close to the organizers just for working there, but he can't obly anyone to chose him as winner. Still, i understand that it would be strange if someone from the organization would win a prize launched in a contest from that organization. The same happens in this case, she should know that...
