Surrey CCC have confirmed that Mark Ramprakash has been withdrawn from today’s Clydesdale Bank 40 clash against Northamptonshire as a result of an internal disciplinary process.
The former England batsman has received a one match ban as well as an automatic three point penalty for a Level Two offence.
Mark Ramprakash showed serious dissent after his dismissal against Gloucestershire on the final day of the LV= County Championship match which ultimately ended with a Surrey CCC victory.
Surrey chief executive Richard Gould said, “Mark regrets his action in returning to discuss the matter with the umpires, and accepts the imposition of a one match ban, in addition to the automatic three-point penalty as part of the ECB disciplinary process.
“The ECB has confirmed that the case is now closed.”
Mark Ramprakash has expressed disappointment at the one-match suspension he has been handed by Surrey.
“VERY disappointed to be banned for one game given the circumstances,” Ramprakash said on Twitter.
“I dont agree with the umpires interpretation of what happened or rule.”
