Four players and one team official have been found guilty of breaching the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Code of Conduct during the recent Colonial Medical Insurance regional Super50 Cup.
The four players are T&T Red Force’s Akeal Hosein, Barbados Pride’s Jonathan Carter and West Indies Emerging Player’s Joshua da Silva and Keon Harding, while Red Force coach Mervyn Dillion was also found guilty of a breach.
Four of the five admitted to their offences and accepted the imposition of the proposed sanctions, so there was no need for a formal hearing. In the case of Harding, he was charged with two breaches in the same game- a Level 1 to which he admitted and accepted the proposed sanction and a Level 2, which he intends to appeal.
The fast bowler was fined 10 percent by match referee Hayden Bruce for striking a garbage bin near the entrance of the enclosure at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in South Trinidad.
Arising out of the same incident, Harding was also reported and fined 70 percent by Bruce for showing serious dissent at an umpire’s decision by action or verbal abuse.
