Why England Skipper Morgan has been banned from 4th ODI against Pakistan?
LONDON – England Skipper Eoin Morgan has been banned from 4th ODI against Pakistan.
England skipper Eoin Morgan will miss Friday’s fourth one-day international against Pakistan in Nottingham after being suspended for a slow over-rate offence, the International Cricket Council said on Wednesday.
Morgan has been suspended for one ODI and fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees, for maintaining a slow over-rate during the third ODI against Pakistan on Tuesday.
Match referee Richie Richardson imposed the suspension on Morgan after England were ruled to be two overs short after time allowances during their victory over Pakistan in the third ODI in Bristol on Tuesday.
The ICC said it was Morgan’s second minor over-rate offence after being previously found guilty during the Barbados ODI against the West Indies in February.
Morgan was also fined 40per cent of his match fee, while the players were hit with a 20per cent fine.
