Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Colombo, Sri Lanka - In­dia spin­ner Ravin­dra Jadeja has been sus­pended from the third and fi­nal Test of the series against Sri Lanka in Pallekele af­ter ac­cu­mu­lat­ing six de­merit points over a 24-month pe­riod.

Jadeja had come into the Colombo Test with three de­merit points, slapped on him for run­ning on the pitch in In­dore in Oc­to­ber 2016. Now, the ICC have pe­nalised him fur­ther af­ter an in­ci­dent in the Sri Lankan sec­ond in­nings.

Jadeja had fielded the ball off his own bowl­ing and then thrown it at Dimuth Karunaratne "in a dan­ger­ous man­ner" ac­cord­ing to the on-field um­pires Rod Tucker and Bruce Ox­en­ford.

Jadeja ad­mit­ted to the of­fence and ac­cepted his sanc­tion by match ref­eree Richie Richard­son. In ad­di­tion to the de­merit points, which tal­lied up to a sus­pen­sion, he was fined 50 per cent of his match fees.
