Panesar receives suspended ban under ECB Discipline Code

The ECB Cricket Discipline Commission announced today that Monty Panesar has received a suspended ban after accepting that he breached ECB Directive 3.2 in that he did not conduct himself fairly and properly on the field, following two incidents during the LV= County Championship match between Essex and Worcestershire on Tuesday 3rd - Friday 6th September in which his actions were potentially threatening and intimidating towards a member of the opposition.

Under the summary procedure in the Cricket Discipline Commission Regulations, Panesar has accepted a suspension from one LV= County Championship match, such penalty to be suspended until the end of the 2014 season, pending any further breach of any ECB Rule, Regulation, Code or Directive. He has apologised for his behaviour during the match.
