Womens Big Bash League (WBBL) players Hayley Jensen and Corinne Hall have been banned for six months each for betting on matches as Cricket Australia continues its crackdown on any betting involvement from contracted players. Patrick Peterson Womens Jersey .Jensen and Hall both voluntarily accepted identical sanctions imposed by Cricket Australia - a two-year ban of which 18 months was suspended - after admitting the charges of betting on mens international games. South Australia Futures League player Joel Logan has also received a suspended ban after he also breached Cricket Australias Anti-Corruption Code.Jensen, who has played international cricket for New Zealand and represented Victoria and Melbourne Stars in the 2015-16 Australian domestic season, admitted the charge of placing one bet on the result of the Brisbane Test between Australia and New Zealand in November.Hall, who played for the Hobart Hurricanes in the WBBL, admitted the charge of placing two bets relating to two matches in the Matador Cup competition last summer.Logan admitted the charge of placing two bets relating to the World T20 earlier this year.The punishments for Hall and Jensen prevent them from participating in any form of cricket or cricket-related event for a period until October 21. Unlike Hall and Jensen, Logan was not on a full state contract and was contracted on a match-by-match basis for the Futures League, which was taken into account in determining his lesser punishment.The bans are not the first to concern Australian cricketers in the past year: ACT and Sydney Sixers legspinner Angela Reakes was handed a suspended sentence last December for betting on the 2015 World Cup final; and Western Australias Piepa Cleary was banned in February after betting on the Adelaide Test between Australia and New Zealand last November.Cricket Australias Head of Integrity, Iain Roy, said: We take a proactive, zero-tolerance approach to maintaining the integrity of our sport and this includes any form of betting on cricket globally.Players in Australia are required to complete an anti-corruption education session before they can compete in any competition, including all players in our Underage National Championships. We continually remind players that betting on any form of cricket is strictly prohibited, and this is written into our Anti-Corruption Code.These players have accepted the seriousness of their errors and have voluntarily accepted their sanctions. This serves as a timely reminder to all players in cricket that the integrity of our game is a high priority and we wont accept this being compromised. J.J. Nelson Authentic Jersey .

Its been a busy seven days for the Philadelphia Union, featuring a dramatic second-half comeback to salvage a draw against the New York Red Bulls and a midweek loss on penalty kicks to the New England Revolution in U.S. Open Cup play.But Philadelphia coach Jim Curtin believes his squad will be able regroup in time for a Saturday showdown on the road against the Montreal Impact.Im confident our guys can turn it around, even after 120 minutes, and go again against a good Montreal team, Union coach Jim Curtin told reporters after Wednesdays loss to New England. Sometimes Wednesday games can make the schedules busy, for sure, but weve been a team that has played well in Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday and have bounced back. Hopefully we do that again against Montreal.To make things more difficult for Philadelphia, the Union will be shorthanded and without standout midfielder Ilsinho, who is suspended after receiving a red card against New York.Philadelphia (9-6-5) trails first-place New York City FC by three points in the Eastern Conference standings. Montreal (6-5-8, 26) is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Adrian Wilson Womens Jersey. The two teams battled to a 1-1 draw on May 14. Montreals Didier Drogba had the Impacts goal three minutes to the game. Philadelphias C.J. Sapong delivered the equalizer for the Union at the 24-minute mark.Montreal is coming off a 3-1 loss to New York City FC, but did not have a midweek game and will be fresher than Philadelphia.Its a busy week, but we think we have a very fit team, Curtin said. Weve never really changed five or six guys. Weve changed two at the most, which we did (Wednesday).Obviously (Montreal is) disappointed having lost to New York City, Curtin added. Theyll be out with a little more vengeance. We talked to the guys -- we have to be better on the road. Our only win was against Columbus, which was a long time ago. Weve gotten some good draws, but weve now set a goal of getting three wins on the road down the stretch. It starts with Montreal on Saturday.
