Sydney, Dec 28(ANI): Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee has been for breaching Cricket Australia's code of behaviour after he criticized New South Wales (NSW) chief executive David Gilbert.
Lee has asked for Gilbert's sacking last week after the NSW board had sacked coach Anthony Stuart, the Age reports.
NSW responded to the media comments by reporting Lee, who is retired form the Blues and now only plays for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash, it added
Lee is alleged to have breached rule six for unbecoming behaviour and rule nine for detrimental public comment, the paper said.
Under the code of conduct, players must not bring the game into disrepute or be harmful to the interests of cricket, it further added.
Lee said the blame for NSW poor State cricket form was unfairly heaped on Stuart and that CEO Gilbert deserved to have questions asked of his performance, questioning Gilbert's leadership, the paper further said. (ANI)
