London, Jun 10: West Indies' Denesh Ramdin has been fined 100 per cent of the applicable match fee and suspended for two ODI matches after being found guilty of a Level 2 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 match against Pakistan on Friday.
Ramdin was found to have breached ICC Code of Conduct which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.”
Ramdin was charged in relation to the circumstances surrounding his asserted catch of Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq in over 8.6.
The charge was laid by the on-field umpires Steve Davis and Nigel Llong, third umpire Tony Hill and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough.
Ramdin pleaded not guilty to the offence and after a full hearing on Monday, he was fined and a two-match suspension was issued.
Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees was appointed to adjudicate the matter.
Broad said: “This is regarded as a serious offence as it is the responsibility of all players to act in the spirit of the game. I hope Mr Ramdin has learnt his lesson from this incident and that we will not see such behaviour by him or any player in the future.”
