Ramdin charged with conduct contrary to spirit of game

London, June 8 (IANS) West Indies wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin has been charged with violating the ICC Code of Conduct during the game against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy here Friday.

Ramdin was charged with a Level 2 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game" during the two-wicket win in the Group B encounter at The Oval.

The charge has been laid by the on-field umpires Steve Davis and Nigel Llong, third umpire Tony Hill and fourth umpire Richard Kettleborough.

Ramdin has pleaded not guilty to the offence, and a hearing will take place in London Monday.

The charge related to an incident in Pakistan's innings when Ramdin claimed a catch off Misbah-ul-Haq.

The range of penalties for all first Level 2 breaches are the imposition of a fine of between 50-100 percent of a player's match fee and or a suspension of up to two (2) ODI matches.
