Usman Arshad in his bowling stride for Durham Jets
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today confirmed that Usman Arshad has received a penalty under the ECB’s discipline code.
Arshad was reported by umpires Peter Hartley and Mike Burns during Durham Jets' Natwest T20 Blast match against Leicestershire Foxes on 20th June 2014 for a Level One breach of the code (bowling a fast short pitched ball and/or accidental high full pitched ball that results in the bowler being disallowed from bowling any further in that innings).
The penalty for this offence is a reprimand. This penalty will remain on his record for a period of two years and the accumulation of nine or more penalty points in any two year period will result in an automatic suspension.
