UAE Skipper Among Three Players Suspended by Emirates Cricket Board

UAE Skipper Among Three Players Suspended by Emirates Cricket Board

UAE skipper Rohan Mustafa, Ahmed Raza and Rameez Shahzad have been suspended for eight weeks by the Emirates Cricket Board for making censorious comments on social media during the Emerging Teams Asia Cup earlier this month.

The three players tweeted (which were later deleted) about the poor conditions at the ground in Karachi after a brief spell of rain forced them out of the tournament. The shower didn't last for too long but the track was still deemed unplayable as water had seeped under the covers.

UAE had reduced Hong Kong to 87 for 4 in 31 overs before the rain arrived for around 30 minutes and that was enough to ruin their chances of making it to the semifinal of the eight-team tournament.

"Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) has today confirmed it has completed a disciplinary investigation relating to an alleged violation of its Player's Code of Conduct, and use of Social Media following a recent incident during the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Emerging Teams Asia Cup," the board said in a statement. "ECB concluded that 3 players; Rohan Mustafa, Ahmed Raza and Rameez Shahzad, had violated its Code of Conduct and requirements for the use of Social Media.

"As a result, each of the players have been suspended from International Cricket for a period of 8 weeks, fined and warned about their future conduct. "
