ICC: Deunte Darrell Suspended For One Match

October 24, 2019

Deunte Darrell has been suspended for one match for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the T20 World Cup Qualifier.

The ICC said, “Deunte Darrell will miss Bermuda’s next ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier match against Scotland on Thursday after he was handed one suspension point for breaching Level 2 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

“Darrell was found to have breached Article 2.21 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “conduct that brings the game into disrepute,” following his reckless behaviour during the Group A match against Namibia on Wednesday.

“In addition to the suspension point, three demerit points have been added to Darrell’s record.

“The incident happened in the eighth over of Bermuda’s innings. After being adjudged leg-before wicket and when he was leaving the field, Darrell threw one of his batting gloves in the direction of the opposite team, hurled his bat at the advertising board and then threw his second glove in the direction of his own team in a very aggressive and intimidating manner.

“Darrell admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

“The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Allahudein Palekar and Ahsan Raza, and reserve umpire Sam Nogajski. Level 2 breaches carry a fine of 50 to 100 per cent of the match fee and/or up to two suspension points, equating to three or four demerit points.”

    I turned on my computer and there is was front and center of MSN news and then on every international news media. The problem with discipline in Bermuda sports in general is that we all just accept bad behavior. The umpires and referees, coaches, parents, fans ….. We might complain about it, but we think it’s someone else’s issue to deal with, well it is time for us to deal with it as a Community. Look at the way one player acted at Cup Match and then again at the T20 qualifiers in Bermuda, but we take him anyway. He is a tremendous athlete, but he has been allowed to act like this his entire life.

    If I hear one more story about what’s going on in Dubai I am going to scream. I would like to think it is an exaggeration, but I read what the captain said the other day and he referred to lack of discipline on and off the field, so you have to wonder.

    I did like that the young man accepted his punishment but more so that the punishment was handed down almost immediately, BCC take a lesson from this and make sure that match reports are submitted the following day and sanctions are issued before the next game day.

      Some good points:
      BCB/match officials should be quicker when it comes to sanctions. Also, discipline has often been lacking from the local game. Who’d be an umpire? Yes, cricket can be a passionate sport, but respect the officials, players.

      This has to start at the local level, from youth up to seniors. Stress to players AND supporters to respect the officials and opponents.

      • Williams says:

        Discipline comes from within and begins in the home. It is certainly not an umpire’s responsibility to tell grown men how to behave or what acceptable behaviour looks like. It starts in the home. If you are rude and disrespectful in Bermuda you will be rude and disrespectful every where. The chickens have come home to roost.
