Dubai [UAE], May 15 (ANI): England limited-overs skipper Eoin Mogan was suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for one ODI and was fined 40 per cent of his match fees on Wednesday for slow over-rate in the third ODI against Pakistan.

This fine means that Morgan would miss the fourth ODI against Pakistan on Friday, May 17.

England's other team members were fined 20 per cent of their match fees for the same reason as Morgan.

Richie Richardson, who is a member of the ICC's elite panel of umpires imposed the suspension on Morgan after England were ruled to be two overs short after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Morgan was fined under Article 2.22.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and player support personnel, relating to minor over-rate offences. Under this article, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

The 32-year-old Morgan was previously fined guilty off a minor over-rate offence during the Barbados ODI against the West Indies on February 22.

This offence of slow-over rate in the third ODI against Pakistan, constituted his second minor over-rate offence within a 12-month period.

England's wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow was also reprimanded by the ICC for breaching level one of the ICC Code of Conduct in the third ODI against Pakistan.

Bairstow was seen expressing dissatisfaction after getting dismissed. He was clean bowled by Junaid Khan and he was seen expressing anger and abusing the cricket equipment.

He was found guilty under Article 2.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for players and player support personnel, which relates to "abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match".

In addition to this, one demerit point has also been added to the disciplinary record of Bairstow.

Bairstow admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC elite panel of match referees, and as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

On-field umpires Michael Gough and Paul Reiffel, and third umpire Chris Gaffaney laid the charges on the player. (ANI)
