Pooran Banned For Ball-tampering


West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran has been banned from representing the Caribbean in their next four Twenty20 internationals after admitting to tampering with the ball.

The 24-year-old was caught on camera using his thumb to scrape the ball and seam during the final match of the 3-nil one-day series win over Afghanistan.

Pooran has since accepted the charge under the International Cricket Council’s code.

Cricket commentator, Andrew Mason, believes Cricket West Indies should take further action against the player.

Pooran has been one of the leading batsmen for West Indies this year.
