Gabriel hit with ODI ban


Share post:

A SECOND West Indies cricketer has been suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Following captain Jason Holder’s one-match Test ban for his team’s second Test slow over rate, fiery fast bowler Shannon Gabriel has been controversially slapped with a four-match one-day international suspension by cricket’s world governing body, the ICC, after being found guilty of player abuse.

The 30-year-old Gabriel was also hit with a 75 per cent fine and three demerit points for the incident, which took place during the England second innings on day three of the finalWisden Trophy Test in St Lucia on Monday.

In a statement yesterday, the ICC said Gabriel was found guilty of breaching article 2.13 of the Icc Code Of Conduct For Players And Player Support Personnel, which relates to “personal abuse of a player, player support personnel, umpire or match referee during an international match” following an incident with England captain Joe Root.

Surprisingly, the ICC did not reveal what Gabriel said to Root, nor did stump microphones pick up his comments but according to media reports, Root was overheard telling Gabriel in response to a remark: “Don’t use it as an insult. There’s nothing wrong with being gay.” (EZS/CMC)
