Fast bowler Braydon Carse has been banned. Currently not participating in the World Cup, was a member of the England squad that traveled to India for the 50-over World Cup. From 2017 to 2019 this player placed 303 wagers. Carse has agreed to pay every charge. He has acknowledged that, during the game he was playing, he placed no wagers.

He placed bets on various games, but he did not do so while representing his nation, which is why his three-month ban is all. Carse has 15 ODI wickets from 17 international games, or four T20 wickets, but England has suffered a significant blow. A player who played for the team continuously and participated in the 50-over World Cup in 2023 was abruptly punished severely and banned by the England Cricket Board.

Even if this player is not participating in the T-20 World Cup, England has previously been accused of slowly moving toward fixing or betting among its players. Although it is illegal for cricket players to wager on other cricket matches, Braydon Carse, an England player who was born in South Africa, bet on 303 matches before the England and Wales Cricket Board acted swiftly.

As he had bet on several games, you may now be wondering why the ban was only for three months. However, he did not engage in any betting or fixing in those matches in which he personally participated. He was playing, thus the board, being somewhat understanding, suspended him for three months
