Netherlands fast bowler Vivian Kingma has been given a four-match suspension for tampering with the ball during his side’s third one-day international against Afghanistan, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said yesterday.
Kingma will miss his team’s next four limited-overs games after breaching level three of the ICC’s code of conduct during Tuesday’s match in Doha. “The incident occurred in the 31st over of Afghanistan’s innings, when the fast bowler changed the condition of the ball by scratching it with his nails,” the ICC said in a statement. Kingma, 27, admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Wendell La Brooy, it added.
Netherlands were handed a five-run penalty, and lost the match by 75 runs as Afghanistan completed a 3-0 sweep.
