English cricketer Tom Curran recently caught every headline after he was stamped with a four-match suspension in the ongoing BBL. Notably, Curran was charged with a Level 3 offence under Cricket Australia's code of conduct for a pre-match incident where he almost ran into the reserve umpire. Curran’s suspension has had the cricket world in a chokehold.

The footage of the incident where Curran was seen being in an exchange with the umpire has been doing the rounds all over social media as well. Many fans came forward to lambast Curran’s actions. However, Sydney Sixers’ skipper Moises Henriques came forward in Curran’s defence.

"I didn't think much of it at the time]. I don't think anyone else did, I've seen the ten-second clip; it doesn't look great but... you can't quite understand the context there either. There was a bit of communication before and after, that probably hasn't been released either,” Henriques told Fox Sports. 

"I've known Tom for a long time, played with him at Surrey, he's been a big part of the Sixers for a long time. He's a great man, he's a real leader in the community, he's a leader among our team. I'm still struggling to comprehend that sort of penalty for what he's done,” he added.

It's been a pretty tough time for TC: Henriques

Furthermore, Henriques also revealed that the suspension took quite a toll on Tom Curran. He revealed that the English cricketer has taken the matter to heart. Moreover, Curran was worried about the assassination of his character. 

"It's been a pretty tough time for TC - the last 11 days - sitting on this and knowing what he's like, he's taken it to heart; he's really worried about the assassination of the character there. It's a big claim. I'm wishing him the best,” Henriques said."

"It took ten days to get a hearing in the first place, which is very unusual anyway, we're definitely going to appeal. All of the players and all of our staff are behind him,” he added.
