Jason Anderson was involved in an ugly altercation during a domestic match between Cleveland County Cricket Club and Willow Cuts Cricket Club. Anderson was wicketkeeping when the incident occurred with O’Brien. Anderson punched O’Brien who then swung his bat at him. Both wrestled each other to the ground at which point police moved in to diffuse the situation.
The Bermuda Cricket Board reviewed the video footage and found Anderson guilty and handed a life-ban from any involvement in cricket in Bermuda. O’Brien was handed a six-month ban from all cricket.
The Bermuda Cricket Board put out the following statement: “We condemn this act without reservation and support the Bermuda Police Service, the Bermuda Cricket Board of Control as well as the Willow Cuts and Cleveland County Clubs as they seek to end this irrational behavior on our sporting grounds and community.”
