The jury in the trial of the former Worcestershire cricketer Alex Hepburn has been discharged after failing to reach verdicts.
The panel deliberated for more than nine hours before being discharged by Judge Jim Tindal following a five-day trial at Worcester crown court.
The Australian-born Hepburn, 23, of Worcester, denies two counts of rape alleged to have been committed against a woman, who cannot be identified, in April 2017.
After the jury was discharged, prosecutors were granted a two-week period to decide whether to seek a retrial on the charges.
Hepburn was bailed and a provisional retrial date was listed for 8 April.
