England and Durham fast bowler Brydon Cars has been banned from all forms of cricket for 3 months for betting. The England Cricket Board has found him guilty of placing 303 bets from 2017 to 2019. After this, the board's anti-corruption body, after investigation, gave him a 16-month sentence, in which he was suspended for 13 months. Now he cannot play any cricket till August 28. Cars cooperated in the investigation and accepted all the charges against him. However, it has also been revealed that Cars used to bet only in those matches in which he did not play.

Cars were part of the World Cup

Brydon Cars made his debut against Pakistan in 2021. Since then, he has played 14 ODIs and 3 T20 Internationals. He has taken 15 wickets in ODIs and 4 wickets in T20s.

Now he will miss it due to the ban from 28 May to 28 August. Cars took full responsibility for his mistakes and said that although he did this work many years ago, despite this he does not want to make any excuse in front of the board for this. He also thanked the ECB, Durham Cricket, and PCA for their support. Cars further said that during the ban he will work hard to make a comeback.
