Kieron Pollard fined, gets one demerit point for disobeying umpire’s instruction in 2nd T20I vs India


Kieron Pollard has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee by the International Cricket council after being found guilty of disobeying umpires’ instructions during the second Twenty International in Florida last weekend.

In addition, the 32-year-old was also slapped with one demerit point. Four demerit points within a 24-month period leads to a ban.

The sanction came after pollard ignored the umpire’s repeated instructions not to call a substitute player on to the field without first making a request.

Pollard was advised by umpires to wait until the end of the next over but failed to comply.
