Cricket owes much of its appeal and enjoyment to the fact that it should be played not only according to the Laws, but also within the Spirit of Cricket. Respect is central to the Spirit of Cricket. Cricket is an exciting game that encourages leadership, friendship and teamwork, which brings together people from different nationalities, cultures and religions.
In the same way, Middlesex Cricket expects that members respect and support each other, the club, Lord’s and all who visit or work there. Any conduct demonstrating a failure to show respect, including abusive, discriminatory or inappropriate behaviour or language, will be considered a breach of the Rules of the Club and render a member liable to expulsion or suspension from the club as provided by the Rules of the Club.
Misconduct, for the purposes of this Code, includes the writing and / or circulating of letters and or electronic messages to members of the staff or Board which fail to show respect, including abusive, discriminatory or inappropriate behaviour or language.
