Park and Muchall penalised
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today confirmed that Derbyshire’s Garry Park and Gloucestershire’s Paul Muchall have received penalties under the ECB’s discipline code.
During the Second XI Championship match between Derbyshire and Worcestershire on May 23-25 2012, Park was reported by umpires Ben Debenham and George Wood for a Level One breach of the code (abuse of cricket ground, equipment or fixtures/fittings).
During the Second XI Trophy match between Gloucestershire and Glamorgan on May 25 2012, Muchall was reported by Peter Hartley and Paul Pollard 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).
Both players have received reprimands. These penalties will remain on their records 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.
