  13. Yorkshire's Tom Kohler-Cadmore fined over WhatsApp group

    BBC Sport

    Yorkshire cricketer Tom Kohler-Cadmore has been fined £2,000 for bringing the game into disrepute.


    Kohler-Cadmore, along with Nottinghamshire's Joe Clarke, was named as a member of a WhatsApp group, which came to light during the trial of former team-mate Alex Hepburn.

    Hepburn was found guilty of rape in April and jailed for five years. Neither Kohler-Cadmore or Clarke were charged with any criminal offence.

    Additionally, there is no suggestion of any criminal wrongdoing by the pair.

    At an independent Cricket Discipline Commission hearing on Thursday, the pair admitted the disrepute charge brought against them by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

    Kohler-Cadmore said: "I deeply regret my involvement in the WhatsApp group in 2017.

    "I fully accept the subsequent punishment and I now want to move forward with the rest of my career and life in a positive manner."
