The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today confirmed that Murray Goodwin and Glen Chapple have received penalties under the ECB’s discipline code.
Goodwin was reported by umpires Michael Gough and Russell Evans during Glamorgan’s LV= County Championship match against Worcestershire on 4th-7th May 2014 for a Level 1 breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action).
Chapple was reported by umpires Mark Benson and Steve Gale during Lancashire’s LV= County Championship match against Sussex on 4th-7th May 2014 for a Level 1 breach of the code (showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action).
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.
