As per Adams, “her ex is recovering from alcoholic habits and believes that cricketer is pushing her towards a mental breakdown. She wants his persistent and unwanted behaviour to stop as it is making her life more and miserable,” as quoted by Daily Mail UK.

But the cricketer for now has managed to avoid jail due to a lot of positive references and by ‘previous good character.’ In the defence of Hodnett, Mark Haslam threw light of a lot of incidents where he displayed good character. Haplam stated: ‘The defendant accepts that his conduct was not just inappropriate, but totally unacceptable. It was not for him to go on a moral crusade.
