England captain Eoin Morgan suspended for one ODI over slow-over rate offence

London, May 16 (UNI) England captain Eoin Morgan has been suspended for one ODI and fined 40 per cent of his match fee for a slow over-rate offence during third ODI match against Pakistan.
Match referee Richie Richardson on Wednesday imposed the suspension on Morgan after England were ruled to be two overs short after time allowances during their victory over Pakistan in the third ODI in Bristol.
''In accordance with Article 2.22.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount'', the ICC said in a statement.
Morgan's players have also been fined 20 per cent of their match fees for the same offence.
According to ICC, it was Morgan's second 'minor over-rate offence' after being previously found guilty during the Barbados ODI against the West Indies in February.
The suspension means Morgan will miss the fourth ODI against Pakistan in Nottingham on Friday.
Meanwhile, wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow has been reprimanded by the ICC for hitting the stumps with his bat after his dismissal for 128 in the 29th over of the same match.
ICC confirmed that one demerit point was added to the disciplinary record of Bairstow, his first since the introduction of the revised code in September 2016.
Bairstow admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Match Referee Richie Richardson so there was no need for a formal hearing.
