The England and Wales Cricket Board’s Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) today confirmed that Andrew Hall (Northamptonshire), Tony Palladino (Derbyshire) and Mark Footitt (Derbyshire) have received penalties under the ECB’s Directives.
Hall and Palladino were both reported by umpires Peter Willey and Steve O’Shaughnessy during Northamptonshire’s Royal London One-Day Cup match against Derbyshire on August 11, 2014 for Level One breaches of the code (using language that is obscene, offensive or insulting and/or making an obscene gesture).
Footitt was reported by umpires Mark Benson and Peter Hartley during Derbyshire’s Royal London One-Day Cup match against Yorkshire on August 13, 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 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.
