Inzamam leaves for ICC Code of Conduct hearing



Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul-Haq on Sunday left for London to appear before an International Cricket Council (ICC) Code of Conduct hearing at which he faces a possible ban.

Inzamam led his team’s protest after umpires Darrell Hair of Australia and Billy Doctrove of the West Indies changed the ball over suspicions of ball tampering on the fourth day of the Test match at The Oval last month. Umpires penalised five runs and after Pakistan’s protest awarded the match to England.

The hearing, to be conducted by ICC chief match referee Ranjan Madugalle, is due to take place on Wednesday and Thursday with a verdict expected on Friday.

The Pakistan captain faces a fine of 50 to 100 percent of his match fee or a ban of one Test or two One-day Internationals (ODI) on ball tampering charges, a level two offense under the ICC Code of Conduct.

The penalty for a second charge — that of bringing the game into disrepute by protesting, a level 3 offense ñ is a ban of two to four Tests or four to eight One-day Internationals (ODI). This will be the eleventh time Inzamam has faced charges since the introduction of the Code of Conduct in 1992.

The previous 10 penalties for Inzamam are as follows:

1: v India - September 14, 1997 at Toronto - suspended for two ODIs after Inzamam tried to beat a spectator. Match referee was Jackie Hendriks (West Indies).
