James Faulkner to miss clashes due to four-game suspension

A FOUR-game suspension will see Australian all-rounder James Faulkner miss the T20 clash and ODI series against England to be contested after the Ashes.

The 25-year-old copped the ban under Cricket Australia's code of behaviour after being charged for drink driving in the UK earlier this month.

He will also have to undergo alcohol management counselling. Faulkner has been playing for Lancashire in England's county championship.
