Jamie Overton penalised under ECB Discipline Code

The ECB Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) today confirmed that Jamie Overton has received a penalty under the ECB’s discipline code. 

During Somerset’s LV= County Championship match against Nottinghamshire on 2th – 27th September 2013, Overton was reported by umpires Nigel Llong and Michael Gough 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 beinng disallowed from bowling any further in that innings).

The penalty for this offence is a reprimand. This penalty will remain on his record 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.
