BEN DUCKETT has been provisionally suspended by the ECB following an incident in a Perth bar. The 23-year-old England batsman was due to open the innings against a Cricket Australia XI at Richardson Park today, but will instead face a disciplinary hearing.
With play already underway between the two nations, it was revealed by the England camp that he has been dropped from the side. The incident is believed to have taken place between Thursday night and Friday morning, after Andrew Strauss agreed to a midnight curfew.
Strauss – the England and Wales Cricket board director – put the curfew in place after the bizarre altercation between Jonny Bairstow and Cameron Bancroft.
