IND Vs WI: Windies Coach Stuart Law Suspended For First Two ODIs

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday suspended the West Indies coach Stuart Law for the first two One-Day International (ODI) matches in India for making "inappropriate comments" against a match official.

The incident that led to the action took place on the third and what turned out to be the final day of the second Test in Hyderabad, which India won by 10 wickets.

Law, following the dismissal of opener Kieran Powell, went to the TV umpire's room and made inappropriate comments, the ICC stated.

"He then walked to the fourth umpire's area and, in the presence of the players, again directed inappropriate comments at the fourth official."

The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Ian Gould, third umpire Nigel Llong and fourth official Nitin Menon.

Law was found guilty of breaching Level 2 Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

This relates to "public criticism" or "inappropriate comment" of player, player support personnel, match official or team participating in any international match.

Law was also fined 100 per cent of his match.

With the latest transgression, Law accumulated four demerit points within a 24-month period, leading to his suspension from the ODIs on October 21 and 24 against India in Guwahati and Visakhapatnam, respectively.

Law earlier received a 25 per cent fine and one demerit point during the final day's play in the Dominica Test against Pakistan in 2017.

Four demerit points convert into two suspension points. On Monday, Law admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Chris Broad, ruling out the need for a formal hearing.

Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player or player support personnel.

If Law reaches the next threshold of eight or more demerit points within a 24-month period, then they will be converted into four suspension points.

Four suspension points equate to a ban from one Test and two ODIs or two T20Is, two Tests or four ODIs or four T20Is, whatever comes first for the player.

Level 2 breaches come with a fine of 50 to 100 per cent of the match fee or up to two suspension points.
