A group of South Australian cricket players are in trouble after allegedly having a boogie in a nightclub.
The group of players were evicted from an Adelaide nightclub and have been referred to Cricket Australia for alleged Covid-19 rule breaches, AAP has reported.
Under SA’s Covid-19 regulations, dancing is banned in licensed venues.
The players allegedly refused orders from the nightclub’s security staff to stop dancing and reportedly were verbally abusive to staff.
Police evicted the 10 Redbacks from the Cry Baby nightspot in Adelaide’s central business district about 12.30am on Tuesday.
The South Australian Cricket Association said on Saturday it would not take any action, but handed over the matter under CA’s Covid-19 management framework.
SACA has also spoken to the whole team about player behaviour.
“SACA has not received a complaint from any party and the investigation into the matter has not found evidence for most of the allegations,” the association said in its statement.
“However, in relation to Covid-19 dancing regulations it has made the decision to refer that matter to CA under the management framework, which makes all breaches reportable.”
The group of Redbacks players went to the nightclub after their drawn Sheffield Shield game against Queensland on Monday.
