New Delhi: Indian captain Saurav Ganguly has been suspended for one match after umpires reported him for excessive appealing during the One-day International win over Zimbabwe at Kanpur on Monday. Umpires C K Sathe and Devender Sharma reported Ganguly and wicket-keeper Vijay Dahiya to referee Barry Jarman for breaking the International Cricket Council (ICC) Code of Conduct during the nine-wicket victory on Monday.
Jarman ruled the players violated three sections of the code by showing dissent, bringing the game into disrepute and intimidation. Dahiya was let off with a one-match suspended ban. Ganguly will now sit out the fifth and final One-day international against Zimbabwe in Rajkot on Wednesday. India have taken a winning 3-1 lead in the series after Ganguly took five wickets and shared a 157-run opening partnership with Sachin Tendulkar on Monday.
