Mervyn Westfield to play for Suffolk after ban

Mervyn Westfield, previously jailed for four months after being convicted for spot-fixing, has been cleared to play for county second XI and minor counties.

Westfield will be playing for minor counties side Suffolk as he tries to rebuild his career.

The fast bowler was banned from professional cricket circuits in 2012, but the England and Wales Cricket Board has given him special dispensation to play for 12 months. He is expected to start training with Suffolk next Monday.

Westfield’s expected debut for Suffolk would be against his former club Essex, but he is restricted from first-class cricket until his ban expires in 2017.

The ban was for accepting a £6,000 bribe to deliberately bowl badly for Essex against Durham in 2009. It was reduced to two years after he agreed to an anti-corruption program run by the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA).

“I’m probably a little bit rusty,” said Westfield. “My body didn’t used to ache as much as it does now, but I’m training hard and trying to get back my fitness.”

“This summer I’ll probably get the odd bit of banter, but I’ll just have to distance it and get on, just focus on what I’m trying to do, score runs and take wickets.”

“I’ve done wrong. I’m just trying to fix it now and obviously I’m happy I’m back playing cricket.”
