The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today confirmed that Luke Evans and Calvin Burnett have received penalties under the ECB's discipline code.  During Scotland's Yorkshire Bank 40 match against Essex on 2nd June 2013, Burnett was reported by umpires Steve Garrett and Mark Benson for a Level 1 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).During Northamptonshire's Second Eleven Trophy match against Surrey on 3rd June 2013, Evans was reported by umpires Graham Lloyd and Steve Ross for a Level 1 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 these offences is a reprimand. 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.
