The England and Wales Cricket Board has confirmed that Charlie Shreck and Mark Stoneman have received penalties under the ECB’s discipline code.
Shreck was reported by umpires Steve O’Shaughnessy and Graham Lloyd during Leicestershire’s Natwest T20 Blast match against Derbyshire on 6th July 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 this offence is a reprimand.
Stoneman was reported by umpires Richard Illingworth and Richard Kettleborough during Durham’s LV= County Championship match against Yorkshire on 7th – 10th July 2014, for a Level Two breach of the code (showing serious dissent against an umpire’s decision by word or action). The penalty for this offence is three penalty points.
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.
