The Sydney Thunder have terminated the contract of bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi.

The club received a complaint about Farooqi’s behaviour last Thursday and referred the incident to Cricket Australia‘s integrity unit for investigation.

The inquiry is now complete and the Thunder have decided to terminate Farooqi’s contract with the support of Cricket Australia.

“The details of this matter are confidential and no further comment will be made,” Cricket Australia said in a statement on Friday.

“The behaviours displayed by Fazalhaq Farooqi sit outside our values and it was determined that his contract be terminated,” said Cricket NSW chief executive Lee Germon.

“Our focus now is providing the necessary support to those affected by this incident.”

The incident occurred one day before the Thunder were all out for 15 against the Strikers at Sydney Olympic Park.
