Naracoorte cricket incident investigated

Naracoorte District Cricket Association has launched an investigation into an incident involving two cricketers from the same team last Saturday.

A tribunal met last night to consider evidence from witnesses to the incident, which is alleged to have occurred between Naracoorte Townies players in their match against Naracoorte Devils at Wortley Oval.

The tribunal has made a recommendation to the association and the association executive is expected to make a decision on a possible penalty over the next few days.

The association told the Herald it had decided to act swiftly and firmly on the incident in an effort to stamp out any behaviour that might bring the game into disrepute.
