Darrell’s tournament over after second ban

    In the beginning: Deunte Darrell’s leg-before dismissal against Namibia in Dubai last month lies at the heart of his most recent troubles. He was banned for one match then for his off-field conduct, and now has been sat down for two more, having reached four demerit points after mouthing an “audible obscenity” in the wake of being run out in the abandoned match against Kenya


Deunte Darrell’s involvement at the Cricket World Cup Challenge League B in Oman has been brought to an end after he was suspended for two games by the world governing body on Monday.

The Bermuda batsman, who was already on thin ice with authorities after receiving a one-match ban last month at the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier in Dubai, fell foul of the totting-up process when he admitted using an audible obscenity on Sunday in the abandoned match against Kenya.

He will now miss the matches against Jersey today and Italy tomorrow.

Bermuda are bottom of the table with one point from three games.

The International Cricket Council statement read: “During Bermuda’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Challenge League B match against Kenya on 8 December, [Deunte] Darrell was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the code, which relates to ‘use of an audible obscenity during an international match’, following his dismissal in the 36th over.

“Darrell admitted the offence and accepted the sanction of a warning and one demerit point proposed by ICC Match Referee Manu Nayar.

Darrell’s accumulated demerit points reached four following this latest breach of the ICC Code of Conduct.

“Darrell already had three demerit points against his name for an incident in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. When a player receives four or more demerit points, they shall be converted into suspension points for sanctioning purposes, as outlined in Article 7.9 of the Code of Conduct.”

On-field umpires Vinod Babu and Tabarak Dar, and third umpire Anantha Rajamani levelled the charges after Darrell reacted badly to a run-out that was of his own making when he called Justin Pitcher for a single that was never there.

His dismissal for nine extended a long barren run over two competitions in which a high score of 18 against Singapore in Dubai is his only total in double figures.

Darrell was banned for one match in Dubai for throwing away his gloves in the direction of both the Bermuda and Namibia camps after his dismissal, and tossing his bat against an advertising hoarding.

The Royal Gazette was unsuccessful in attempts to reach tour management in Oman for comment.
