The Bermuda Cricket Board have finally acted over the disgraceful scenes which marred this year’s Somerset-St George’s cup match.

The two players involved have been fined and put on probation, but the real loser is St George's captain, Herbie Bascome, who was fired as the country's Under-19 coach.

The BCB has hardly helped the situation by taking an age to investigate and produce its finding, but at least the matter now appears to be at an end.
