Durham hit with 10 penalty points for Maddinson’s oversized bat | Cricket News

Province Championship side Durham were left behind on Thursday to mourn a blowing accident, but it was not a sloppy shot that cost them dearly, but the size of Nic Maddinson‘s willow, resulting in a 10 point deduction.
Australian Maddinson used a bat that failed a bat-gauge test during Durham’s game against Derbyshire earlier this month. The equipment was inspected by the umpire before asking the left-hander to continue with a new bat.

“Durham has accepted a 10-point deduction from the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) after attachment Nic Maddinson admitted a violation of ECB guidelines 3.2 and 3.3,” the UK Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) said in a statement.
“The CDC considered the points raised by Durham CCC and Maddinson as a mitigating circumstance, namely that the offense was committed unintentionally, but affirmed that the matter should be handled on a strict liability basis.”
Marylebone Cricket Club rules state that a bat must not be longer than 96.52 cm from the handle down and dimensions must not exceed 10.8 cm for the width, 6.7 cm for the depth and 4 cm for the edges.
