Dubai: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended Indian women’s team captain Harmanpreet Kaur for the next two international matches after she was found guilty of two breaches of the ICC code of conduct.
The incidents took place during the third match of the International ICC Women’s Championship series against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Saturday.
The first incident occurred in the 34th round of batting for India when Kaur was sent off after being caught slipping by spinner Nahida Akter as she angrily slammed her bat at the wicket.
According to the ICC, Kaul was fined 50 percent of the match fee for the second-degree infraction and had three points deducted from his disciplinary record.
She was found guilty of breaching article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which deals with dissenting the referee’s decision.
Kaur was also fined 25 per cent of the match fee for “public criticism of incidents at international competitions” by publicly criticizing in-match referees during the medal ceremony.
The India captain admitted his offense and agreed to the recommendation of sanctions by Akhtar Ahmed, the International Match Referee Panel of the UAE’s International Criminal Court. As a result, the penalty was imposed immediately without the need for a formal hearing.
Level 2 violations typically result in a penalty of 50% to 100% of the player’s game cost and a penalty of 3 to 4 points. In contrast, a Level 1 infraction carries a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50% of the player’s match fee and a deduction of one or two points.
In Kaur’s case, the accumulated four points translated into two suspension points, resulting in her being suspended for one Test match, two ODIs or two T20Is, whichever comes first for the team.
