Emily Jane Smith is an Australian cricketer who plays as right-handed wicket-keeper batswomen for the Tasmanian Roar team.

In Women Big Bash League She played for the Hobart Hurricanes team in 2015/16 season after she playing for the Perth Scorchers team since 2016.

Cricket Australia (CA) on Monday handed a one-year ban to Emily Smith for breaching their Anti-Corruption Code. Smith posted the team on her personal Instagram account on Saturday, November 2.

Smith was found to be in breach of Article 2.3.2 which prohibits: “Disclosing Inside Information to any person (with or without Reward) where the Participant knew or might reasonably have known that such disclosure might lead to the information being used in relation to Betting in relation to any Match or Event.”

“Whilst Cricket Australia acknowledges that at the time of posting the team line-up there was no intent to breach the Anti-Corruption Code, CA’s rigorous anti-corruption player education program means that players are well aware of their obligations under the Anti-Corruption Code and there is no excuse for breaches regardless of the reasons for information being disclosed,” Said Sean Carroll, Cricket Australia’s Head of Integrity and Security.

“Since the commencement of the WBBL, Cricket Australia has had in place a robust anti-corruption program. We have been working with Emily throughout the process and Emily now understands the mistake she made. Unfortunately, in this instance, Emily’s actions breached the Anti-Corruption Code. We hope this serves as a reminder to all that the Anti-Corruption Code is critical to protecting the integrity of the game,” Carroll ended.
