Mike O'Shea, the Glamorgan batsman, has been suspended for three weeks after he was caught drink-driving.

"Mike O'Shea is a talented cricketer at Glamorgan but he has severely broken the code of employment," the club's director of cricket, Matthew Maynard, said. "This will not be tolerated... and we can only hope that he uses this time as a period of reflection."

O'Shea, who represented England in Under-19s, made his debut for Glamorgan against Bangladesh A in 2005, aged 17. He has played twice in this year's Friends Provident Trophy and one Championship match.

"I am deeply embarrassed about my behaviour and I apologise unreservedly to Glamorgan and the supporters for the effects my actions have had on the club," said O'Shea. "I accept without question all the sanctions the club have decided to impose on me. Drink driving is utterly unacceptable and totally out of character for me."
