Vijay Zol, the India under-19 captain has been suspended for one match by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for breaching their Code of Conduct during the ICC Under-19 World Cup quarter-final encounter against England. In a tense game, the India players were quite expressive and Zol was reprimanded for his gestures directed at Ben Duckett during the run-chase.
An ICC Press Release said, “Graeme La Brooy of the ICC Regional Referees Panel imposed the sanctions after both the players pleaded to the guilty to the offences and accepted the proposed sanctions. One suspension point in the Code equates to a suspension from the next match in which the player is most likely to participate in. As such, Zol will miss Monday’s play/off match against Sri Lanka at ICC Academy 1.”
On the other hand, off-spinner Aamir Gani was reprimanded for his actions after dismissing Ed Barnard.
