Bangladesh captain suspended for one ODI & fined 40 % of match fee

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]Naman Trivedi Ahmedabad: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has been suspended for one ODI and fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 quarter-final against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Thursday. Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the suspension on Mashrafe after Bangladesh was ruled to be two overs short of its target at the end of the match when time allowances were taken into consideration. As Mashrafe had also been found guilty of a minor over-rate offence during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match against England on 9 March, this offence constituted his second minor over-rate offence for the purposes of the ICC Code of Conduct. Mashrafe pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing. In accordance with Article 2.5.1 and Appendix 2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which deals with minor over-rate offences, in the case of a second minor over-rate offence in the same format of the game within 12 months, the captain, in addition to the fine, receives one Suspension Point, which equates to a suspension from the immediately subsequent one International Match in the same format of the game as that in which the offence occurred. As Bangladesh has no more matches left in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, Mashrafe will miss the next ODI, which is currently scheduled against Pakistan in April/May. The charge was laid by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould, third umpire Steve Davis and fourth umpire Paul Reiffel, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
