Derbyshire all-rounder Shiv Thakor guilty of indecent exposure

Derbyshire all-rounder Shiv Thakor has been found guilty of indecently exposing himself to two women on a housing estate.

The 23-year-old has been suspended on full pay by his club with his last appearance coming in a 128-run Specsavers County Championship Division Two defeat to Northamptonshire in June.

Derbyshire Police investigated two separate allegations he indecently exposed himself to women at a housing development on Radbourne Lane in Mackworth.

The district judge at South Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court accepted on Wednesday evening that both charges against Thakor were proven. He will be sentenced on November 24.

Derbyshire said on Wednesday evening that they will review the case following the guilty verdict.

Their statement read: “The club expects the highest standards of behaviour from all its staff and is opposed to sexual harassment in any form.

“Following the conclusion of the legal proceedings, the club will now review the case. In consultation with the player’s representatives, the player remains suspended on full pay and suspended from all cricket activity by (the England and Wales Cricket Board).

“The club is unable to make any further comment at this time.”

He began his career at Leicestershire and represented England from U15 to U19 level before joining Derbyshire in 2015.

He was named captain of the England U19 team for their tour of South Africa in January 2013, but suffered a broken finger in the opening match and missed the rest of the trip.
