Perth Scorchers and Western Australia legspinner Usman Qadir has found himself in trouble with police after being allegedly caught speeding 50kph over the limit in East Perth.

The Western Australian Cricket Association released a statement on Monday advising that it was aware of the incident and that Qadir had fully cooperated with police. He has been advised that he will receive a court summons in relation to the incident.

'We are extremely disappointed that this has occurred,' WACA chief executive Christina Matthews said. 'The WACA takes road safety very seriously and we understand that speeding is a key contributor to accidents on our roads.

'We expect all our players and staff to drive responsibly and our players know their behaviour has an impact on the community as role models.'

Driving in excess of 40kph above the limit in Western Australia carries a penalty of a AUD1200 fine and being handed seven demerit points. If a driver gets 12 demerit points in total they will lose their licence for 12 months.

Qadir was left out of the Scorchers' last match against Melbourne Stars on form. He did play for his club side Melville in the WACA Premier T20 final against Subiaco-Floreat on Sunday.

The son of former Pakistan legspinner Abdul Qadir, Usman has declared his desire to qualify to play for Australia ahead of the T20 World Cup in 2020. He has played seven matches for the Scorchers this season taking six wickets at an economy rate of 8.45.
