PRESS RELEASE —
Following yesterday’s on-field verbal altercation involving Tino Best of the St. Lucia Zouks and Shoaib Malik of the Barbados Tridents during CPL match number ten at the Kensington Oval, charges were laid by on-field umpires Joel Wilson and Gregory Brathwaite under the relevant section of the WICB Code of Conduct which is the governing code for the CPL.
The charges laid by the on-field umpires were as follows:

• Tino Best was found to have breached Article 2.1.8 of the Code of Conduct which relates to “conduct that either (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute. This is a Level One offence. As a result, Tino Best was charged 10% of his match fee.

• Tino Best was found to have breached Article 2.2.8 of the Code of Conduct which relates to “using language or a gesture(s) that is seriously obscene, seriously offensive or of a seriously insulting nature to another player. This is a Level Two offence. As a result, Tino Best was charged 50% of his match fee.

• Shoaib Malik was found to have breached Article 2.2.4 of the Code of Conduct which relates to “inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play during an International Match”. This is a Level Two offence. As a result, Shoaib Malik was charged 50% of his match fee.

Both players pleaded guilty to the charges laid against them. As a consequence of this, Match Referee, Denovan Hayles, was not required to hold any hearings into the incident and the fines have been levied against both players.

In addition, there was a further incident which took place after the match at the players’ hotel. While this is being investigated currently, the CPL management can confirm that the incident was minor and no one was injured.

The management of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League would like to take this opportunity to thank the Match Referee for his prompt handling of this incident and to restate its commitment to protecting the integrity of the tournament and the sport.

  1. Tantrums aside terrible Tino is the best bowler for the zouks besides the Pakistani Tanvir. He looks as if he will get wickets. Have the zouks ever won a game in CPL? A waste of space some would say.

  3. A real example why i support TT sports minister on detaching country name to the CPL teams. A real lucian would have uttered words that Malik would not understand such as.."tye ch.........la". More seriously though, St lucia's name can be indelibly tarnished from such occurrences.

    My opinion.

    • Who say it is a Lucian side. You people just don't understand that this is a franchise. It would be a lucian side if the government made their salaries.

      • I so agree with you but all these teams that's how they play for country an not for franchise only the international players you can see know the difference, look how narine played so weak when he played against red steals and Ben when he played against trident they all have a soft spot when playing against their native country and that shouldn't be SMH... sad to say no wonder why Zouks and Hawks last on the list how many of their real local boys are on the team compared to the other teams (We need to know the difference and then we can move on positively with CPL)!!

  6. Tino your behavior and antics have always been childish,you have always bowled fast and foolish, just learn to bowl a good line and length consistently and let the ball do the talking. What did you say to Malik to get him so incensed, I hope it wasn't the "P" word.
