Kieswetter penalised under ECB Discipline Code

The ECB Cricket Discipline Commission today confirmed that Craig Kieswetter has received a penalty under the ECB’s Directives. 

During the Friends Life t20 quarter-final between Surrey and Somerset on August 6 2013, Kieswetter was reported by umpires Tim Robinson, Michael Gough and Steve O’Shaughnessy for a Level One breach of the code (using language that is obscene, offensive or insulting and/or making an obscene gesture).

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.
