A 24-year-old female cricketer named Angela Reakes of Australia has been suspended for two-year ban for placing bets totalling only $9 on the men’s World Cup final.

The bets, which totalled $9, were placed on the tournament final between Australia and New Zealand at the MCG on March 29. Cricket Australia has charged Angela Reakes with breaching its Anti-Corruption Code and has imposed a two-year suspension.

The current ACT and Sydney Sixers player Angela pleaded guilty to placing five bets. She received an official reprimand and will have to spend time educating other cricketers on anti-corruption issues.

Angela voluntarily accepted the sanctions. However, she is able to continue participating in Australian cricket subject to no further breaches of the Code.
