Gibbons disciplined by BCB

Cup Match rebel Treadwell Gibbons will continue to be omitted from the national cricket squad until he serves a year of community service, the Bermuda Cricket Board announced yesterday.

Their decision comes almost nine weeks after the classic.

Gibbons refused to leave the field when he was given out and waved his bat at Somerset players. He was ushered off the field by St. George's skipper Oronde Bascome but then became involved in an alternation with a spectator before police stepped in.

He was later withdrawn from the national squad preparing for November's World Cup Twenty/20 Qualifiers in Dubai while the BCB investigated the matter.

A BCB sub-committee appointed to adjudicate on the incident has ruled that “the suspension of Treadwell Gibbons from the national squad will continue until the following conditions had been met: One year of community service — satisfactorily completed a BCB approved anger anagement/impulse control assessment.”

The Board said their decision had been “communicated to Treadwell both verbally and in writing and he has accepted and understood the sanctions imposed.”

Several former players condemned Gibbons' actions and called for severe disciplinary measures to be implemented.
