ICL: Indian Cricket League

Monday hearing set for Mark Vermeulen



The hearing for the disciplinary proceedings against former Zimbabwe batsman Mark Vermeulen, who was banned from all first-class and league cricket in England for 10 years on Wednesday, will take place at Old Trafford on Monday (tomorrow).

Andrew Fitch-Holland, a barrister and principal with Line & Length Sports Consultants, confirmed Vermeulen will hold a press conference at the conclusion of the hearing.

Following a chain of incidents at a Central Lancashire League match between Werneth and Ashton the league imposed the decade-long ban. On Friday, Fitch-Holland claimed the league thought the batsman had left the country.

“Mark Vermeulen learnt of the imposition of this ban from a news story appearing on Cricinfo’s website on September 14th,” the statement read. “Mr Vermeulen had received no communication from any official of the Central Lancashire League that disciplinary proceedings were being taken against him and therefore was not present when this matter was considered.”
