Sophie Ecclestone recieves sanction for Commonwealth Games incident

The breach was found to be a Level 1 incident, with Ecclestone admitting the offence and accepting the sanction proposed by match referee GS Lakshmi

England star Sophie Ecclestone has received an official reprimand and been docked one demerit point following an incident during her side's loss in the Bronze medal match against New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Ecclestone was found to have knocked over her chair on the way back to the pavilion after being dismissed in the 18th over of England's innings, with the incident deemed to have breached Article 2.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

The breach was found to be a Level 1 incident, with Ecclestone admitting the offence and accepting the sanction proposed by match referee GS Lakshmi.

While it was Ecclestone's first offence over the last two years, the England spinner will need to ensure no further sanctions as suspensions can follow should players offend on multiple occasions.

When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period they are converted into suspension points and two suspension points equates to a ban of one Test match, two ODIS or two T20Is.

Ecclestone had made 18 for her country before being bowled by New Zealand skipper Sophie Devine, with England eventually missing out on the medals after falling to an eight-wicket loss at Edgbaston.
