Ambati Rayudu handed two-match ban for code of conduct breach


New Delhi: India cricketer and Hyderabad skipper Ambati Rayudu has been handed a two-match suspension for breaching the BCCI Code of Conduct during the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy, on Wednesday.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India issued a statement which read: “Rayudu pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by BCCI and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.”

The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Abhijit Deshmukh, Ulhas Vithalrao Gandhe, and third umpire Anil Dandekar. The BCCI is further looking into the role of Hyderabad Team Manager in this untoward incident,” it added.

Because of this suspension, Rayudu won’t be able to participate in the first two matches for Hyderabad in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy.
