SYDNEY: Australian wicketkeeper-batter Emily Smith was Monday handed a one-year ban under cricket’s anti-corruption code for posting her team line-up on Instagram an hour before its official release.

Nine months of the strict penalty was suspended, meaning the Hobart Hurricanes player effectively cannot pad-up for three months, ruling her out of the rest of the season.

The 24-year-old was found guilty of putting the team line-up on her personal social media account before its scheduled release for their clash against Sydney Thunder on November 2. Despite the game being washed out, she was still punished.

Cricket Australia’s code prohibits “disclosing inside information to any person (with or without reward) where the participant knew or might reasonably have known that such disclosure might lead to the information being used in relation to betting in relation to any match or event”.
