July 20, 2012

The Bermuda Cricket Board [BCB] has banned cricketer Toronto Darrell for five years after he found guilty of a Level 4 offence for the second time in the past year.

A statement from the BCB said: “At the St. Davids v Willow Cuts game on July 8, Toronto Darrell was found guilty of breaching Article 2.4.1 Threat of assault on an Umpire or Match Referee (Level 4).

“This was Mr. Darrells 2nd Level 4 breach within 12 months. Mr. Darrell has been suspended from all cricket for a period of 5 years. Mr. Darrell will be eligible to play again on 13 July 2018.

“In the Knock-Out Cup Semi-Final game Somerset CC v Baileys Bay on July 15, Jekon Edness pled guilty to breaching Article 2.1.2 Abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings (Level 1). Mr. Edness has been issued an official reprimand.”

In addition the BCB issued an update on the code of conduct breaches by Janeiro Tucker and Dion Stovell, saying: “Due to a change in the T20 schedule the dates on which the suspensions for Janeiro Tucker and Dion Stovell have changed. The suspensions are based on a specific number of matches.

“Janeiro Tucker was suspended for 3 matches and therefore is not eligible to play on Sunday July 22nd. Dion Stovell was suspended for two 50 over matches and one T20 game. Therefore, he is eligible to play on Sunday July 22nd but not on Thursday July 26th.”
