England cricketer Ben Duckett provisionally suspended by European Central Bank after Perth bar incident

England cricketer Ben Duckett provisionally suspended by European Central Bank after Perth bar incident

Ben Duckett, the Northamptonshire batsman, was stood down from England's two-day tour match in Perth this weekend and is now facing an internal disciplinary hearing following the latest late-night drinking incident to mar their current Ashes tour.

England's third alcohol-related episode in the space of fourth months will intensify pressure on Bayliss, with former captain Kevin Pietersen calling English cricket "a f.ing embarrassment" on Twitter.

Batsman Ben Duckett isn't part of England's Test squad but he was among a handful of England A players set to feature in the two-day fixture alongside Moeen Ali on Saturday.

England are down 2-0 in the Ashes series and the latest bar-room incident has plunged their tour into a fresh crisis as they bid to avoid another humiliating whitewash.

That curfew resulted from a revelation Jonny Bairstow headbutted Cameron Bancroft in a Perth bar during the touring party's first night on tour. "It's just not right, it's not acceptable", Bayliss said on Saturday.

With play already underway between the two nations, it was revealed by the England camp that he has been dropped from the side. "Most of the guys are fine. some guys have to pull their head in".

The incident was apparently more like banter rather than anything serious and was quickly ended by the team security.

The 23-year-old Duckett made his Test and ODI debut in Bangladesh in 2016 but previously has lost the U-19 captaincy due to a failed fitness test and missed a tour in 2015 for similar reasons and also appeared in court on a drink-driving charge.

Bayliss described it as a case of boys being boys but added "it doesn't matter how trivial it is".

Strauss - the England and Wales Cricket board director - put the curfew in place after the weird altercation between Jonny Bairstow and Cameron Bancroft, also in a Perth bar.

"Everyone has been warned that even small things can be blown out of all proportion".

"First of all we've got to find out exactly what happened so that investigation will go ahead in the next 24 hours and we'll find out and Andy [Flower, the Lions coach] will be looking after his player, and if anything needs to be said or done with the first team we'll handle that", Bayliss added.

Star all-rounder Ben Stokes is already suspended from the tour after he became involved in an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September that led to police investigations, although he is now playing domestic cricket in New Zealand.
