Bermuda’s Deunte Darrell has been suspended for Bermuda’s next two matches of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Challenge League B against Jersey and Italy.
During Bermuda’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Challenge League B match against Kenya on 8 December, Darrell was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the code, which relates to “use of an audible obscenity during an international match”, following his dismissal in the 36th over.
Darrell admitted the offence and accepted the sanction of a warning and 1 demerit point proposed by ICC Match Referee Manu Nayar.
Darrell’s accumulated demerit points reached four following this latest breach of the ICC Code of Conduct.
Darrell already had three demerit points against his name for an incident in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. When a player receives four or more Demerit Points, they shall be converted into suspension points for sanctioning purposes, as outlined in Article 7.9 of the Code of Conduct.
The four demerit points equate to 2 suspension points, therefore Darrell is now suspended from playing in Bermuda’s next two ICC Men’s CWC Challenge Group B matches against Jersey on 11 December and Bermuda on 12 December.
On-field umpires Vinod Babu and Tabarak Dar and Anantha Rajamani the third umpire levelled the charges.
