The England and Wales Cricket Board today confirmed that Andrew Hall, Alex Gidman, Jon Lewis, James Foster, Kyle Hogg, Karl Brown and Murali Kartik have received penalties under the ECB’s discipline code.

During the Clydesdale Bank 40 match between Northamptonshire and Surrey on August 15 2011, Hall was reported by umpires John Steele and Steve O’Shaughnessy for a Level One breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action/abuse of cricket ground, equipment or fixtures/fittings).

During the LV= County Championship match between Essex and Gloucestershire on August 17-20 2011, Gidman was reported by umpires Steve Gale and Tim Robinson for a Level One breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action).

James Foster & Jon Lewis

James Foster and Jon Lewis were both reported for Level Two breaches of the code and received three penalty points

During the same match, Lewis and Foster were both reported for Level Two breaches of the code (inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play).

During the championship match between Somerset and Lancashire on September 12-15 2011, Brown was reported by umpires George Sharp and Peter Willey for a Level One breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action).

During the same match, Hogg and Kartik were both reported for Level Two breaches of the code (throwing the ball at or near a player, umpire or official in an inappropriate and dangerous manner) and Hogg was also reported for a Level One breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action).

Hall, Gidman, Brown and Hogg have received reprimands which will remain on their records for a period of two years. Any further Level One breach during that period will result in an automatic imposition of three penalty points.
