Morgan Suspended For Fourth ODI Against Pakistan

England captain Eoin Morgan has been suspended for one ODI for maintaining a slow over-rate during a third ODI against Pakistan on Tuesday.

Eoin Morgan has been fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players have been fined 20 per cent of their match fees.

Richie Richardson imposed the suspension on Morgan after England were ruled to be two overs short after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Morgan had been found guilty of a similar offence during the Barbados ODI against West Indies on February 22, and since this was the second such infraction within a 12-month period, he had to accept the ban as well as a fine of 40% of his match fee.

“In accordance with Article 2.22.1 of the ICC code of conduct for players and player support personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount,” reads an ICC statement.

The fourth ODI between both teams will be played on Friday, and the final game is scheduled for Headingley on May 19.
